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
I think Moodle has another OpenSource competitor too but i can't quite remember that far back and

one of the places now using Moodle.

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
