803 Pupils here enjoy it (although we don't use a true edubuntu server,
we use just use ubuntu + ltsp4.2 + extra packages installed by
edubuntu), and thanks to shipit.edubuntu.org and shipit.ubuntu.com the
school library is regularly giving away *ubuntu cd for the masses.

even new laptops get xp/vista replaced by an edubuntu workstation.
