I am trying to start a project in a school I administer computers for students high school to college plus). It might have donations but for right know it is only me doing the work (long time linux /enlightenment user from dynabolic days). The idea is to create a os that is as nice as mac with the programs of windows and the flexability of programs like anadroid has, and sell the students a computer with subsidising with the software they need (every thing at once) and then during the install be able to choose. The idea behind this is to enable them to see what open source can do for example valentina is a good and easy to use sewing program (no I didn't try it but my wife did). Add that to having templates made for them ex libreoffice with footnotes on the bottom. The donor wants that the laptops (or netbooks rather) cannot access online as not to disturb the student (this is for education only). I have started with a chinese laptop the ONDA  obook 11 plus. I will try to post more info as to drivers ect as i go along. Just giving you a heads up that this distro was chose to be used.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

You might want to talk to astroboy. He has created a spin of Bodhi for educational purposes.

This could be self evident but with windows  the battery life is 3.30 if you are lucky but with linux has 4.45 without any apps like tlp and wildguppy and rfkill Waiting to try bodhi (old kernel does not work well with recent atom chips)
