For those who do not know SchoolOS !!
SchoolOS is the NCERT's distro which is going to have a mass-scale
installation and training by Govt. Now it depends on community how community
(Ubuntu, Fedora , Kde etc) can support this mission. Good to see that
FedoraforKids is going on at good speed.

Putting Linux in schools is 1000 times more effecting then coding and
mailing, but beaware, you only got once chance to go there.... they do also
business ,,, give them best as possible.. we can event wait..
