I think a lot of it comes down to expectations.  Many early Edubuntu
users were also K12LTSP users.  K12LTSP works so great and is so easy to
set up, that the standard was set very high for Edubuntu.  There has
been a lot of hype around Edubuntu -- which I think is a good thing
because it helps to attract new users.  But the hype also attracted some
K12LTSP users and I think, in general, those are the users who have been
disappointed with Edubuntu.
