Koululinux is here.

Today I had my first opportunity to fully test (and get working) all configurations of Skolelinux aka Debian-Edu aka Koulu (Finnish for school) Linux here in Finland.

After a few hours of tinkering, I managed to get a Main server, Thin Client server and a thin client working. And whoa, I am impressed and even more excited about the project. LDAP, LVM, Samba, backup and other services you’d expect out of the box. Crazy… ;)

Next week I hope to demonstrate the ease in which I can setup a typical’s school computer system. However this is a tad difficult. As I am making use of HU CS resources on the pretext of Network experiments, I honestly do not have any political support or permission to do work here for Skolelinux, I mean Koululinux.

I now have first hand experience of setting up everything. I hope some collegues could possibly, maybe, share my enthusiasm here.

Webconverger typically replaces Windows on PCs and is deployed in public and business environments for ease of deployment and privacy. Once installed it auto-updates making it painless to maintain. Try it where you exclusively use the only viable open platform... the Web!
