My son installed Edubuntu in a school library where he was working- no
problems, he was very enthusiastic....however the school was in the grip of
North Yorkshire and their fascination for Windows  and throwing away public
money on it.......and after he left I am sure they relapsed...sorry am off
the point .....he had no problems.
