[school-discuss] Some questions about OSS in education:

I think it is better to use OSS in school than to use Microsoft's product, and i believe that OSS would be the mainstream in education of ICT in several years.But i have some questions about OSS in education now:
1 Suppose in the future most of the k12 schools us OSS as ICT tool,then when we look back,what is mark of the beginning of OSS in education?
2 Which Linux distribution is the best for school?I s it Debian? LTSP? FedoraCore? Gentoo or sth. else?
3 Which country is the most active in applying OSS in education now? It is said that Latin American countries are more interested in using OSS in education than the other parts of the world, is that true?
4 Which is the most important paper that advocates OSS in education? Those who like OSS always think E.S.Raymond's <<The Cathedral and the Bazaar>> as their Bible, is there such a Bible in OSS in education?
5 What is the percentage of the k12 schools that use OSS instead of Microsoft's product now in your country?
6 I heard that Latin American is very active in applying OSS in k12 education, is that so? Anybody cab afford me some information about it?Better in English.

Thanks a lot.
