It's going quite nicely.  It's not a project to create a distribution, it's 
a project to get Linux servers in schools.  6 machines were donated by 
Intel, and a total of ~14 machines were installed with Linux at the 
workshop.  By now the majority of them are in service.

As a data source, the admins of these machines would be poor.  They're 
servers, pure and simple.  Only 2 ppl of 50 raise their hand when asked if 
any end-user software would be run on these machines...

I go to work now....
