I have had dealt with them in two different school districts. They are nice, but i felt a little disappointed in the customer service end. It seemed to me that I was a low priority in both cases. I have switched them to K12LTSP in both districts, and have been running smoothly since.

Hello Joshua,

I haven't myself used companies like "SafeDesk" before.  But do
understand that K12LTSP already *is* a turnkey (or should I say
"turndisc"?  :- ) ) solution.  That's actually the point of K12LTSP; Eric
Harrison takes Fedora Core or CentOS, adds the LTSP bits, and throws in
a bunch of educational apps.  It's a complete, self- contained
distribution.  When you're done clicking through the installation, boom,
you have a working educational LTSP setup.
