Debian Edu/Skolelinux

Last Update: 2019-12-04 09:14 UTC

Debian Edu/Skolelinux is the Debian-edu's Debian Pure Blend distribution. It is aiming to provide an out-of-the-box localised environment tailored for schools and universities. The out-of-the-box environment comes with 75 applications aimed at schools, as well as 17 network services pre-configured for a school environment. The simple, three-question installation requires minimal technical knowledge. Skolelinux is Debian, which means, among other things, that there are no license costs or worries, and that upgrade and maintenance of the software can be done over the Internet with the power of Debian's apt-get. The core goals of Skolelinux are localisation and ease of system administration.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 155 (58), 6 months: 124 (82), 3 months: 137 (67), 4 weeks: 109 (113), 1 week: 160 (40)

A good initiative with a comprehensive selection of programs. Watching the list scroll as the packages installed was an education in itself - from Avogadro, through the periodic table of elements to the Musescore program, and all the others.

Unfortunately the sound did not work. I saw a message about connecting to Alsa but nothing happened. The regular Debian 10 installed a driver for the onboard sound with no hitch, but not the Edu fork.

Everything else functioned OK.

As of now, Stretch 64 (AMD A-10, 8 GB RAM) works flawlessly on my main computer. The KDE version seems much more polished that in previous versions. Graphics performance with free drivers is stable and faster than 8.8.

As usual, Debian does not disappoints.
