What about making a Fedora for education. You could have 2 versions. An easy to use and learn version like the Suger OS found on the OLPC. And another that is closer to a windows desktop. It would be much cheaper for schools to upgrade to a free and open source OS and the community and help available would help a lot. I know I have spoken to a few schools who were very interested in an open source OS made for education uses.

It would have to have all Open Office apps including all fonts and picture options (Things like word art and pic art). The desktop would also need to be very very close to windows. All options would have to be in the same position. All menus organised the same way. An idea might also be to have a school edition. I know I have had a couple schools run on Linux destros and I had to point them to Ed instead of Fedora because Edubuntu is made for schools. These are just my opinions and I have worked more with schools than small business as far as getting people to use Linux.
