Used in homes, schools and businesses by over 8 million people globally, Ubuntu is one of the world’s most popular versions of Linux. Ubuntu Education Edition is custom-designed to help students get the very best educational experience. And, because it is free, there are no licensing costs or restrictions placed on the learner, the school or administrators.
You get access to world class software for desktops and servers, with a choice of various editions which can be used in the Classroom, School Administration, and the education department.
The Ubuntu LiveCD makes it easy for pupils to boot their home computers temporarily into Ubuntu and use exactly the same applications that they are using at school. The LTSP server software allows teachers and administrators to create a low cost computer lab so that students can have access to the educational opportunities that Ubuntu and the Internet can provide.
