Hi :)
Fred has been looking into it a bit more but we still haven't worked out if it really is bad.  It's 
still looking like a good product but it is more comparable with these;

 think Moodle is something a bit different, a "Course Management System"
 that might be part of one of the Suites or might replace hefty chunks 
of it.
I think Moodle has another OpenSource competitor too but i can't quite remember that far back and 
only vaguely remembered moodle because it's fun to say.  It turns out my old 6th Form College is 
one of the places now using Moodle.  

Regards from 
Tom :)

Hi :)
Fedena is apparently not free and it's not a distro!  I'm not sure why i thought it was!  

It is a "Management Information System", for schools, so it's more like a suite of modules inside a 
program or a suite of programs.  There is an Open Source core of programs/modules but then you 
would probably find you need some of the "Premium" programs/modules.  

Signing up for their "demo" seems to involve a lot of details i might consider phishing so i would 
NOT go for it without exploring it in more detail.  

Apols and regards from 
Tom :)

I would not normally have redirected 
 this one from the moderators filtering.  Normally i would have let it go straight through to the 
spam dump.

It is "just another distro", like Ubuntu, SuSE, Redhat, Fedora, Mageia and the rest.  The main 
twist in this ones case is that it focusses on schools and includes good tools to help people 
manage educational establishments as well as having useful and interesting things for 
school-kids.  Unlike Edubuntu this one appears to have started in India although it also seems to 
be available in English.

Note that i don't think this has anything to do with the One Laptop Per Child project

So, if you like "distro hopping" then you might like to have a play around with 1 or other 
distro.  If you
 haven't done any "distro hopping" before then i tend to prefer setting up a spare new partition 
rather than using a Virtual Machine.  Other people swear by VMs [shrugs].  Either way has

(omissions for brevity)
Are you sure Fedena is a Linux distro ... I visited their site and they 
look like if you have a browser, you can use their product on their 
computers (cloud, they said), for a
