I agree - thanks a lot, Iain!

...and I agree with the suggested rephrasing - thanks, Charles!

A few comments:

I believe Debian Edu should be in the "in the works" sections: As I 
understand it, the parts officially in Debian are only the metapackages, 
whereas its ease of installation and configuration is not (see e.g. 
<https://bugs.debian.org/311188#339>).  Also, that project has two 
equally valid names, so I suggest to also mention the other: Skolelinux.

Related to above, I believe the phrase "Those with installation media 
available [...]" would be improved by adding the term "official" - as in 
"Those with official installation media available [...]".

I believe FreedomBox is also a Debian Pure Blend in the works a.k.a. a 
Blend (see e.g. <https://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox/Hardware/Debian>).

EzGo is badly described: Metapackages describe its aim as being for 
"teaching and self-learning."
