The open source educational DVD was created as an aid for schools
and universities. The catalogue on the OS-school-DVD is aimed at the
Key Learning Areas used in Queensland schools as well as more learning
areas used at University.
The objectives of the DVD are firstly to provide schools with a catalogue
of useful free and open source educational software for Windows, MacOSX and
Linux. The Windows software can be installed directly from the DVD.
The second objective is to provide a live (bootable) Linux DVD which will
allow the user to run open source educational software before installing it.
The Live Linux DVD component also provides non Linux users exposure to
software which is not available on Windows, such as software written for KDE desktop or
developed on Linux but yet available on Windows such as Rosegarden (music composer).
