Re: Not a discussion list?
Freeduc is popular here. Recently one Indian
Linux magazine,("Linux for you") distributed freeduc-cd
with there magazine.
Cobaco pointed me to skolelinux english pages. We are
seriously looking at it. One problem I faces with
skolelinux is that its based on Kde, but gnome is
suggested in our curriculum.
(See I didnt used skolelinux yet, there maybe a gnome version too)
Also it is knoppix based,(isn't it?) But we use morphix
because it is modular. IN all other aspects skolelinux seems
to be great....
I will be on vecation from 7th to 12th. we may contact skolelinux
team after that.....
