Edubuntu incorporates LTSP directly, and the devs for LTSP work closely with the Ubuntu 
folks, such that LTSP 5 will be in the next version of Edubuntu.  But I think the 
consensus on this list is that while Edubuntu is worth watching and testing, K12LTSP is 
currently a more 'stable' implementation, albeit at the expense of being not as cutting 
edge (bleeding edge some might say) as Edubuntu.  I think many, perhaps most, on this 
list are using K12LTSP in production but also may have Edubuntu installed on a test 
system, just to see a different way of doing things.  Which one is better depends on 
your needs. There are many on the LTSP list who are running LTSP on top of Ubuntu.
