A short look at gOS

,----[ Quote ]
| So after downloading the gOS Live ISO onto my Debian Etch system I started
| Innotek’s VirtualBox, bound the freshly downloaded ISO as a CD-ROM, made a
| 4GB virtual hard disk image for installing it, gave that virtual computer
| 256MB of RAM, and started...


First look at Edubuntu 7.10

,----[ Quote ]
| Edubuntu 7.10 is a linux distribution based on Ubuntu aimed at schools and
| teachers. As a new teacher I thought that I would take a look at what
| Edubuntu has to offer, and whether I think that I would use it in a school
| environment. I ordered a free cd from ShipIt, and as always this took a
| couple of weeks to arrive.

| Edubuntu is Ubuntu GNU/Linux customised for
| schools, containing additional applications
| for young human beings, administration tools
| for school management, and a built-in terminal

Edubuntu: Linux for education

| In Venezuela, for instance, "there are several movements that were
| originated by a new law, Presidential Decree No. 3390, where all
| public institutions must use open source software," says Efrain
| Valles, a Venezuelan educator, Ubuntu user, and open source
| advocate. However, Valles says that uptake in the education
| sector is slow. "Our schools are just beginning to use
| computers. There is no one computer per classroom thing;
| remember, we are a Third World country. Technology is an
| import and very expensive, so the reach to schools is
| happening mainly because of stuff like Edubuntu."

Tip of the Trade: Edubuntu

| You can literally have an entire network up and and running in

| Edubuntu, like all good Linuxes, supports older hardware well.


Controlling and managing Edubuntu users' desktops

| The community-driven Edubuntu project aims to create a version of Ubuntu
| specially tailored for use in primary and secondary education. Perhaps the
| most useful feature present in the Edubuntu OS is the Linux Terminal Server
| Project environment, whose applications are not limited just to eduction. * *


Gosh, gOS is good

,----[ Quote ]
| I really liked gOS. It's a cute little system with lots of functionality and
| great looks. It works well and is fast and stable on my laptop. It should
| work on any computer that any other Linux supports. Enlightenment is an
| impressive desktop environment, and the iBar is a low-overhead way to blend
| cool effects with needed functionality. I think users will like it. * *

| Linux favorates.
