Re: [Fwd: Re: [school-discuss] Which is the fastest Desktop distro for schools?]

Hi Arjun,

I would suggest at least looking at Skolelinux/Debian-Edu. This 
distribution (originally named Skolelinux, but now also goes by the 
name Debian-Edu), which came from Norway and is based on Debian is 
one of the best school-oriented Linux distributions right now. Very 
recently it won the Linux New Media Award 2004 in Germany for Best 
Newcomer Linux Distribution. It is being localized in many languages 
already and the list keeps growing.

For more information I would suggest checking out:
