Last time I was looking around I found this case study of a primary
school in Kerry: .

Although they're having some great successes, it's kind of mitigated
by teachers' reluctance to use/learn an operating system they're not
familiar with (so they're using Edubuntu on their first older machine;
and free software (and freeware) running on Windows for the new
machines). That's why I'm really curious about Andrew Gribben's
experience and I hope follow-up posts will mention how to get (and
keep!) the school staff on board.

All the best,
