I have a question. It's not meant as a criticism, but as an exploration
of the best way to get educational software to the end users. Have you
considered, rather than creating a SchoolForge LiveCD distro, making
software repositories of all the educational software that could be
added to the repository lists for major distros such as Ubuntu,
PCLinuxOS, Fedora, Debian, etc.? By doing that you wouldn't be
competing for "mindshare" with all the other distros but enhancing what
they have to offer. I know of 3rd-party repositories that already
enhance various distros, like Dries, DAG, FreshRPMs, and ATRPMs, for
example. Might this be something to consider rather than creating
another full-blown distro?
In the future, you will not have to wait for days to get an answer.
