Re: Input on announcing Debian Edu Wheezy?



How about this for a draft?

Debian Edu is a complete operating system for schools. Through its
various installation profiles you can install servers, workstations
and laptops which will work together on the school network.
Administration is via a graphical interface, through which you can
also create accounts for users and groups (there are ready-made groups
for students and teachers), and configure network printers. Debian Edu
comes with hundreds of applications pre-installed, but you can always
add more packages from Debian.
