The Edubuntu team is proud to announce the release of the latest version, Edubuntu 10.10, codenamed "Maverick Meerkat" which is now available for download.
The Edubuntu project is a group of people that aims to deliver the best of educational free software in an easily installable medium. We are part of the larger Ubuntu community and our main body of work is the Edubuntu installation disc, which installs Ubuntu along with educational tools and packages available in the Ubuntu software archives. We aim to make Ubuntu, the popular Linux-based operating system, a great choice for the computing needs of children, students, parents, teachers and schools, bringing many of the best educational open-source applications and tools to the Ubuntu operating system.
You can install Edubuntu from flash disk or DVD installation media.
If you already have an Ubuntu or derivative system installed, you can simply install any additional Edubuntu packages that you would like to use.
Please refer to the Ubuntu 10.10 Release Notes which contains more useful information that is published with the release, including upgrade instructions, known issues and workarounds if required.
If you have visited our website since the last release, you will notice that we're sporting a brand new website. We plan to expand it by including stories about people who use Ubuntu in schools. If you'd like to share your stories, photos or videos, please get in touch, we'd love to share it with the world.
Community support is available via IRC, Forums and Mailing lists. Please refer to http://edubuntu.org/documentation for more information.
