I believe that Edubuntu as a solution, a product and a community can benefit
immensely from the input of someone like yourself in a University
environment, handling a project of the size and scope that you are.

Edubuntu is far more than Ubuntu, possibly with LTSP, and educational
apps/games. It is an application of Ubuntu into an education environment.
The feedback and requirements of the education environment needs to be
voiced and mapped in these channels. We, as a community, need your
experiences to continue creating a product that fits your needs.

Best regards,
