In the most part this is probably true. However having a list of apps/features
required by teachers would help identify whats' missing on the linux
Probably the best approach is to show which apps ( screen shots and docs)
match which class and can be used to develop which skillset. Really having a
few teachers involved in setting this up initially is nearly mandatory.
I'd suggest starting with the primary school area first as many secondary
schools already have systems and their needs are more basic ( OOo, web, and
maybe some science apps).
