As a seasoned Ubuntu user this was very familiar.
+ A lot of thought has gone into producing this student-friendly OS. I found this on a magazine cover disk and tried it on a laptop I'm giving to a secondary school or college student.
+ Lots to like about the study aids and alternative configuration of the desktop to a netbook screen if desired (much like Lubuntu).
- I felt the lack of an update manager and assurance of regular updates.
- Although the selected language was English (UK) some screens were still spelled incorrectly.
Aware that this is now an obsolete version some of my concerns might have already been addressed in the later ones.
I like the philosophy and most of the execution of this distro - needs a few tweaks to give me the same confidence as loading Ubuntu.
