Dear Holger,

additional to my longer mail in German (user at skolelinux de), 
I feel obliged to commtent on these posters which actually relate to 
Skolelinux 2.0 (based on Sarge). Let me quote the one about CipUX:

This is only saying, that CipUX "takes care" of users within a computer 
network. Being sociologist, Christian insists on rather taking care (or 
supervising) students than "administering" them.

CipUX war originally developped within a private project, since 2000 it 
is used by the social science department at Bielefeld University.

In France, CipUX is already used on top of Skolelinux/Debian-Edu.

This information is followed by a feature list (relating to an older 
version, 3.2.10, which is still usable if you install webmin manually).

The source is open to extend the given set of posters (OLPC could be yet 
another topic, LWAT should be another) and to translate them. It could 
also be wise to convert Openoffice 1.x files to OASIS formats - or even 
create TeX files.

BTW: The date of print is May 2006 (lower right corner), indicating that 
this information is out of date. Anybody helping with updating and 
printing posters is welcome.

With kind regards
