Edubuntu is an educational operating system that is a part of the Ubuntu family. It aims to make Ubuntu, the popular Linux-based operating system, a great choice for the computing needs of children, students, parents, teachers, and schools.
“Ubuntu” is an ancient African word, meaning “humanity to others”. Edubuntu seeks to bring the freedoms and spirit of Ubuntu to children, parents, students, teachers, and schools.
GNOME is the GNU Graphical Desktop, it’s the default desktop environment on Ubuntu, as well as Edubuntu. It provides us with file managers, network browsers, menus, and system tools. GNOME also provides an application framework, and many of the applications available in Edubuntu has been created using the GNOME framework. Edubuntu also provides three different theme setups, ‘young’, for younger users, ‘plain’ for a clean desktop setup, and ‘default’, which is a general purpose theme setup.
KDE is another graphical environment, and also serves as an application framework. The KDE project has a sub-project called the KDE Edutainment Suite, which is a collection of fun educational software that makes use of the KDE framework. KDE applications runs fine under GNOME. We have included the very latest versions of the KDE Edutainment software in Edubuntu.
