I believe Classfronter is closed-source.
I also seem to remember comments on the norwegian Skolelinux-list about
non-conforming html at some point. That is probably fixed by now (after
being pointed out by Skolelinux developers, if I remember correctly),
but still indicate the kind of trouble you could run into with non-free
software: You can't fix errors, and can't pay others to fix them - you
need to sit back and wait until the problem gets a high enough priority
for the company to fix.
Sorry - I have no in-depth knowledge of any learning management systems,
which I understand was your actual request here :-(
