One example above all: Kstars and Kig got respectively the 1st and the

Even if they are only two apps of the whole module, this show you how

How does it bind "a lot" of developers?
"a lot"... we are no more than 15-20 people working more or less
actively in kdeedu, and the "core" is made by no more than 6-7 people...

Maybe the fact that kde edu is one of the main reasons that make schools
of every grade use Linux and KDE?
