Skolelinux (aka Debian EDU) – a special Linux distribution based on Debian stable brunch, created for educational use.
The Skolelinux project started on July 2, 2001.
It was associated with the member organization “Linux in schools”, which was founded on July 16, 2001. “Linux in schools” later changed its name to “Free Software in Schools”.
The installation CD/USB lets install the system on a few different ways/machines, such as:
– main server
– workstation – a disk free workstation which works in the DebianEdu network
– roaming workstation – a workstation which works in the DebianEdu network and independently, out of the network
– thin client server – contains the workstation and need two network devices
– standalone – a fully featured workstation contains the KDE desktop environment, and can works out of the DebianEdu network
– minimal – a fully integrated with DebianEdu network, text based core system without GUI
The system offers about 75 applications for education purpose, and a few tools which helps managing the system and network settings.
