comment How do I find artists to work on my game?
Another benefit to having an artist from the get go is that you're less likely to be waiting on them to finish for you to release).

comment How can I get into the educational market?
Also (this is coming from when I worked IT for a school district), a LARGE portion of software is bought with grant money. Meaning if they find software they want, they apply for grants until they can get it. Or they've found a grant for some particular purpose and they have money left over and the software could be purchased with that (and the software supports the overall goal of the grant).

comment How can I get into the educational market?
Schools are cheap also means that they don't have a large IT personnel budget, meaning the IT people that have don't want to be constantly supporting something, meaning a $1000 solution that doesn't require any support has a way better chance of being installed than a free solution that requires support.

comment What are typical pitfalls when writing games with a managed Language like C#?
Additionally you can tell the Garbage Collector to run explicitly if you've just finished an allocate/free heavy loop or if you find you have spare cycles.
