[K12OSN] Making K12LTSP "school friendly"

I LOVE K12LTSP!  I have used it to successfully add 4
"new" classroom computer labs to my small, rural
school district, using old and donated hardware (but
new servers).  I LOVE that my students can login
anywhere and have all their files and even their
customized desktop follow them.  But... (you knew it
was coming, right?)

In most schools, we use so much "edutainment" software
that is M$ only.  My teachers have programs like
"Oregon Trail" and "Reader Rabbit" and "Jumpstart
Math" and "Kidspiration/Inspiration".  IF there was a
way to run this software on the Linux server using
wine and make it available to all the users, THEN
K12LTSP would be the biggest, best solution for
schools - ever (well at least for elementary/middle

Has anyone successfully installed these types of
"edutainment" apps on their servers and made them
available to all the users?  If so, HOW?

I think making something like this "easy" to do, would
catapult K12LTSP and Open Source over the edge for
many  school districts.
