Skubuntu launched September 20, 2005

Tectonic talks about the launch of skubuntu – an adaptation of Ubuntu for schools. Along with artwork, skubuntu also has some tools teachers can use to watch over kids using computers, and a fewe additional software packages of interest to students and educators alike. Skubuntu claims to be the difference between what Ubuntu is, and what it should be for schools.

They stress that it is not the same as Edubuntu. Which leaves me wondering why they chose the name Skubuntu – my understanding is that this is the initiative of a lab that installs OSes for schools. Already, there is Edubuntu – adding another player in the narrow field might just confuse things a bit more. Mark Shuttleworth seems to be involved in Skubuntu too – so Mark, why not have them adapt and use Edubuntu, instead of creating a whole new beast?

hi,
If the computer connected to the Internet is a Windows XP machine, will this work? Is there a program in XP (like FileZilla) that can download the required packages?
