Ummm....Trust me Eric knows how Ubuntu works....we were roomies in
Montreal and he runs Ubuntu on his laptop which happens to be an HP zv5000
(just like mine)  ;-)   We all love and use Ubuntu, but seriously...for
right now....K12LTSP is the more mature product.  All you need to do is
edit your menus so the "kiddish" programs don't show up...that's all.  No
need to uninstall....simply don't show them.  In fact, if you do your own
menus you can get rid of all the "system stuff" that the kids don't need
to know is there.  check the wiki for how to make IceWM the default....or
email me and I'll run you through it.  :-)
