The site looks great!  It's the general idea that I was looking for.

I like the conferences as well.

If you help show the value of Open Source software (even for Windows) 
you can show more OSS that would be great in education but it may only 
be for Linux hence the LTSP.

I'm also looking to get/write some white papers showing the benefits of 
Open Source Software in schools.  Perhaps if you have something we can 
share.  Others here have convinced some schools go to this direction and 
if would summarize the points they made we can design something to pass out.

I did notice that the permissions were set to allow anyone to post even 
if they had not signed up.  Just a thought of forcing authentication 
before posting so there wouldn't be any anonymous posting.

How permanent is the site?

Great Job!
