The increasingly complex problem presented to educators by the variety of different and incompatible computer systems in schools is examined. The difficulty of finding acceptable educational software that runs on all, or even most of, the computer systems that a school may have and the rapid cycle of obsolescence of computer systems, which continues to compound the problem for users in schools, are discussed. Some credible and proven alternatives to current practices that could mitigate these problems are explored
