Asmo is certainly not the only person. I know of at least 10 live

Those are some pretty strong claims about the performance of other distros
out of the box.

What version of ubuntu/edubuntu are you using, and how much did you have to
tweak your lts.conf file?

What is your experience level with the K12LTSP, either Fedora or CentOS

What is your experience level with DebianEdu aka Skolelinux?

Have you seen the littany of issues regarding 8.04, many of which seem to
linger from 7.10, on this list?  I believe they have been clearly and
repeatedly stated.
