The Government (that is Mr Gove) threw out the old syllabus, built around an ability to use Microsoft Office, and introduced a new syllabus which taught computer studies. This new syllabus in many schools relied on the Linux system, an altogether cheaper, easier to use and more secure system.
So after suggesting a radical new approach to computer studies, independant of microsoft, Michael Grove is shuffled out of office. To leave the syllabus of Computer Studies open for grabs again. Of course, we could be wrong, and the position of Chief Whip is an important one. But the sacking of someone so apparently close to the Prime Minister as Mr Gove causes any inquisitive person to think.
