I consider us to have a good relationship going already. Jani got the
LTSP install option in Xubuntu to help make things easier for us, in
return, we did some testing and made sure that the LTSP install option
on the Xubuntu CD works. I also contributed some of my time to get the
Xubuntu website going. Xubuntu is indeed a great platform for schools,
and I think from our side we'll be happy to work together more closely
where possible.
