Sry.. forgot to send this to mailing list...

Edubuntu shipit is now available at for edubuntu
dapper, but that would take at least 6 weeks. Upgrading ubuntu to edubuntu
would also take at least 100 MB of downloads, quite possibly a lot more, as
it would just involve the download and installation of some extra packages.

I am the ICT Coordinator at Quorn Area School in South Australia.  We
would like to experiment with the use of edubuntu in some classrooms in
out school, but have not been able to obtain a copy.  We have obtained a
copy of ubuntu 5.10 but understand this does not have all the educational
programs available with edubuntu.

I found your name in the internet as a possible person to contact to
obtain a copy of the edubuntu CD.

I could download it from the internet, but the school charges me for this
and the bill would come to over $120 and this kills my budget allowance
and defeats the purpose of experimenting with a freely available microsoft

I hope you are able to help me with my quest to obtain a copy of edubuntu.
