Hi all,

As you may have seen Aaron's blog 
and collected feedback
there is a real interest from teachers, IT admins, community workers, ... to 
have a very customizable desktop for students. Kiosk settings, plasma easy 
adaptability are solid tools to base a desktop for pupils on. 

To follow the discussion started by Aaron and in collaboration with Edubuntu 
and its user base and other distributions like Skolelinux, mEDUxa, ... the KDE 
project needs to carry on gathering needs from the base and define some 
objectives, targets, design mockups,... in order to make this happening. KDE 
can extend the Edu experience from applications to the whole desktop and admin 

Would this mailing list, oriented so far to target Edu applications, be the 
one where we also could discuss about admin tools, a desktop, etc? Or should 
we set a new mailing list for that?

And how can we gather more feedback? get more in touch with classrooms, IT 
people, schools admins?

Best regards and thanks in advance for your feedback,
