Did you know skolelinux yet?
Skolelinux is a great Server distribution for schools and it will become part 
of debian-edu, AFAIK. They are working on a Skole-Knoppix too.

We started promoting skolelinux in Wilhelmshaven, 200km SE of Hamburg. And we 
are getting a great response from schools out of our region.
I wrote a single line in a newspaper artikel, talking about that we will 
establish a skolelinux test- and training center. And my phone got hot the 
next days. We will migrate two schools in the next weeks, one in Eden (at the 
coastal border of germany and the nederlands) and at Jever (5kmW of 
Plus two skolelinux presentations in Schortens, this will be for a big 
"Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband, Arbeiter Wohlfahrt" which is a big  welfare 
organisation, 2500Employees in >70 sites, which is interested in skolelinux 
and the GNOME acessibillity Desktop.
They might use skolelinux in their 40 retirement homes and in their 20  
handicapped persons workshops (Behinderten Werkstätten).

I think it's a better solution than SuSE's new OpenSchoolServer who will be 
launched 2004.

As we say in Germany, "Skolelinux ist genial" :o)
