based on debian stable i believe and doesn’t have the usual installer but once you set up the partitions it has a system transfer to hard drive.
Its jam packed with lots of software including emulators, (dos and wine) and is capable of vm as well.
education packages such as g-compris math-blasters, matching games , association games, puzzles, and many more.
it networks easily including broadcom hardware, works with touchscreen technology,
the os boasts an incredible amount of software and synaptic and software installer gives you access to many more options.
the os is designed for children pre-school to 10 years of age
but can be configured for middle and high school age students later.
so this os can easily evolve.
and the game list is awesome (granted mostly kids games but still a metric butt-load of games)
like pingu! (if youve ever played lemmings, your right at home here)
maryo (mario brothers clone) and so on.
full suite of office software, dvd authoring, sound systems, archiving, backup, utilties, monitoring and reporting software for student development.
just so much to list.
to a typical user the os will seem childish and may not hold much interest for them. But to a parent of young children and primary school educators this provides a lot of quality tools for education (and best of all Its free!)
I am impressed with it because I do substitute teach once in a while.
the live dvd is nearly 4 gig in size to start with so its a decent sized download.
the primary language is spanish but you can choose english at boot of the live dvd, If you install it the first time you run the browser you have to select the translate page then it should be ok after that.
heres a link to it.
