I can tell you, from the perspective of someone who's tried both of
them, multiple versions, side-by-side that K12LTSP hasn't require *any*
tweaking to "just work."  Eric did a really bang-up job on the
integration and has for years.  And K12LTSP, especially in its "EL"
incarnations, is rock-solid for stability.

Actually, Edubuntu has twice failed me in demos, and fortunately I had a
K12LTSP server with me both times to back me up (confirmed later not to
be HW failures).  I haven't yet tried Edubuntu Gutsy Gibbon, due to lack
of time; it may well be really nice at this point, and if it solves the
problems I ran into, then that would be suh-weet.  I use Feisty Fawn in
"thick client" mode quite a bit and generally like the *buntu distros a lot.
