-- Debian-Edu/Skolelinux 2.0 ready for free use!
After twenty-one months of development, Skolelinux has released
a new version. Skolelinux, the Debian-edu project's Custom Debian
Distribution, is installed in hundreds of schools in Norway, Germany,

their schools; such centralized operation offers low maintenance and
operational costs. Skolelinux is free and open source software, and

full use of newer hardware, offering support for CD/DVD-ROM, USB-pen,
and audio devices. Since all software is distributed from the
Skolelinux servers, maintenance costs on half-thick clients are still
