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?
