Wow, that's huge! Wouldn't it take you years to take the dvd and drive
to each and every school in order to start an upgrade there?
Do you monitor all those installations after the initial installation
Well, we let the teachers manage their lab however we train them how to doing
Ah, ok. Some more questions came into my mind meanwhile (would be also
interesting to hear how other people in the audience solve those).
Since you use openSUSE Edu I suppose the teachers use iTALC to
control the individual workstations, right? Ie monitoring what's on the
screen, shutting the computers off if needed etc.
Do the children have individual user accounts with their private home or
do you use some shared user per workstation?
How do you handle printer accounting? I heard that this isn't that
straight forward with cups.
We have a small script just to check whether the
school server synchronize the
e-learning data from our server. Because this setup depends on our
wireless/radio network we use the rrdtool and monitor the status of school
routers, radio etc.
Anyway, I also use openSUSE for Asterisk in some places in Indonesia. It's a
bit old but it runs well :) see this  and 
And we have an old system with SuSE Professional 9.0 running a software (based
on python) to turn-on the sirene on the beach when an authority announce the
tsunami warning :) 
Hehe, that's cool :-)
