I want to invite everyone who has been reading this message
thread to take a look ath the SEUL/edu website
<http://www.seul.org/edu/> and if you find what we're doing
interesting (browse through our email archives for the best feel
for what we're doing) join our mailing list and help us!  We'll
certainly publicize the work you all are doing by mentioning it
in our fortnightly Linux in education report.

There are two fairly good lists of educational software for
Linux, and one good list of kid's software for Linux (they
overlap but aren't congruent).  The ed lists are OSFET's Freeduc
<http://www.osfet.org/freeduc> and SEUL/edu's existing software
list <http://www.seul.org:8080/wiki/edu/Software>.  The SEUL/edu
list is created on a wiki, so anyone can add packages, reviews,
or new indices; that aspect hasn't taken off yet, so most of the
work is mine when I can get to it.  The kids list is at
LinuxForKids <http://www.linuxforkids.org>.

There's a dearth of that kind of software for Linux.  I'll try
to find what I can and let you know about it, but don't expect a
