i think if someone is working on such a live spin they need to be really 
careful since such a live spin will have to leave a good first 
impression, lets be frank , bundled Linux games aren't really addictive 
or even as good as what Windows games may be, if we are targeting school 
students, I assume you are talking about student like in class X or 
above, then the spin needs to bundle with it some nice programming 
tools, as well as some really good FPS games, like AA or something like 
it, lets leave a good first impression, instead of leaving them with 
something like Knetwalk, which is a nice game, but I doubt an average 
school kid would like it right away.
Also KDE 4.x or Gnome? for a first introduction i think KDE 4.x would be 
nice, I personally prefer Gnome, but KDE 4.x has a lot more eyecandy to it.
