Re: [school-discuss] Open-source alternatives

Personally, I think that the direction Linux will take in the school systems of the world is more akin to the country-based distros -- they will pick and choose from the panoply out there, create their own distribution reference CD-ROM and then distribute that CD widely for install on all machines.  We will see the Los Angeles Schools District Linux --LASDLinux, the CTKLinux (Christ the King school) the SINGLinux, etc.  AND WHY NOT?  So I think the days of pushing a commercial or general distro are over, except for maybe Sun, Novell, Redhat.  Skole!

You shood take a closer look on skolelinux.
Skolelinux has a big focus running on modest machines and it is
designed to be installed as we call it automagic so even teachers
wich have no big knowledge of IT are able to set up a whole
school net based upon skolelinux.
I've visited this site 
Which site?

and find it very, very thin. Reading the site gives those new users
and even teacher little  confidence that they'd be able to figure it
What exactly?

There have been a lot of changes on www.skolelinux.org in the last 
And there are several mailing lists.
