What Les said.  Plus, there is a subtle difference between these
categorizations and what we tried to do with the AppIndex.  These
categories all list software with the primary usage of education.  Our
AppIndex lists software of use in education.  So we include
OpenOffice.org for example, which doesn't show up in the education
categories on any of these.
