Apart from gnome-games that might be replaced by kdegames|gnome-games in
a kde profile, there are no replacement for the rest. Actually, I
haven't taken care of the desktop the application is made for. I only
have look at the features and teacher's demand on them. Some
applications are similar but with different end users. As an example:
qucs vs oregano. Oregano is gtk based and it's easier to use, so it's
more useful for general students learning electronic as part of physics
or chemistry. Qucs is qt based, but is much more powerful, a little hard
to use, but it can do many things oregano can not, and it's righter for
vocational teaching or subjects focused only in electricity or
electronic. Same could be applied to kig vs drgeo, etc. Those has been
my criteria.

It will depend on the previous libraries installation. If qt and gtk
libraries were already installed I think it will be about 400 mb more.

It's perfect for me, I'm only afraid of delaying the release for the
