Bah, Outlook is a PITA. Didn't notice it sent directly to Don instead of to=
 the list, sorry about that. Reposting this to the list:

I have access to a bunch of Stream 11 Pros (the rather nice looking grey mo=
del produced for education) that is apparently even stranger than the norma=
l Stream 11s. I have not tried putting BSD on it yet (struggling with the P=
ITA of getting Windows 8.1 running on a mere 32GB along with some extra sof=
tware for our teachers right now) but I can do some tests if needed.

I also have a Stream 13 for myself that I tossed Windows 10 on just to see =
what it is like. (I accidentally deleted my backup of Windows 8.1 for my St=
ream 13 as well.) I would like to look into getting FreeBSD running on my S=
tream 13, but just haven't had the time.

If I get a chance to look into either of these I'll let you know what I fin=
d out, or if there's something specific you want me to look at, I can try a=
nd find some spare time to do that.
