Project goalsedit

The primary goal of Edubuntu is to enable an educator with limited technical knowledge and skills to set up a computer lab or an on-line learning environment in an hour or less and then effectively administer that environment

The principal design goals of Edubuntu are centralized management of configuration, users and processes, together with facilities for working collaboratively in a classroom setting Equally important is the gathering together of the best available free software and digital materials for education According to a statement of goals on the official Edubuntu Website: "Our aim is to put together a system that contains all the best free software available in education and make it easy to install and maintain"4

It also aims to allow low income environments to maximize utilisation of their available older equipment


Edubuntu 704 package

The first Edubuntu release coincided with the release of Ubuntu 510, which was codenamed Breezy Badger on 2005-10-13 With the 804 Hardy Heron release of Edubuntu it was given the name of Ubuntu Education Edition5 and was changed to be an add-on to a standard Ubuntu installation instead of being an installable LiveCD From version 910 onwards, Edubuntu changed to be available as a full system DVD instead of an Add-on CD6 Edubuntu is also installable7 via a selection of "edubuntu" packages for all distributions using the official Ubuntu repositories Ubuntu and Kubuntu mainly

Since 1404, Edubuntu has become LTS-only;8 Edubuntu have announced that they will skip Ubuntu 1604 LTS update And they plan on staying with 1404 due to lack of contributors 9 10
