    Any schools using Ubuntu for children's laptops?

    Any schools using Ubuntu for children's laptops? any useful tips hints or ideas fed up of using XP and have just tried Ubuntu on one of our 6 yr old laptops and it flies... :-)
    Already using Google docs for office
    any other ideas would be greatly appreciated

    We do in the machines in our boarding house. They were previously running XP with steady state and locked down but were a pain to manage. Now, these machines are running Edubuntu and just run, no messing about.

    As Danp suggests, the Edubuntu spin might be worth a look.

    I've also looked at JoliOS, which is tremendously fast on old kit. The spanner in the ointment is that it offers the user the ability to sign-in using Facebook which isn't really a great idea for education.
