    Ah, this surprised me!

    Along a similar vein as Edu-hobnobs and whatever other Edu-items we have, there's now an Edu-OS!

    Edubuntu

    Well, not really... but I thought the pun was fun.
    I've not really looked at it, but it might be worth a look for some of you who work in schools.

    It comes with a load of education-related programs pre-installed basically - it's meant to be a quick way of getting them out there.

    So why pick this OS over Windows? Surely with all the software out there etc, it's easier to manage an environment which is all the same OS?
