I agree with Peter Newell on this one! Linux
needs something comparable to "Reader Rabbit" and all the "Jump Start" programs
for younger students. At this point, I only use LTSP for the older
students at my PreK - 8th grade school (which means, I only use it for a
"writing lab" for grades 5 - 8).

I have been evaluating the K12LTSP and have been
pleased with the solution. It seems the key to getting it adopted is the
programs available. While email, word processing, surfing the net and art
packages such as GIMP are just what children need in secondary schools there
seems a lack of suitable applications for primary age children 5 to 11 years
old. For K12LTSP to succeed in primary education it needs the range of
applications to compete against the MS offerings.
Any opinions or suggestions greatly appreciated.
