I am a teacher and a Linux-admin. I also give training-lessons in the use of Linux as a desktop system, work much on moodle and also on mahara.
At school I lead a Linux-Workgroup with some interested students. We just found out that Linux-Mint deserves to leave Ubuntu behind.
"Small, quick and effective; best tool to use from the shell."
"Basic tool, no living without, good to adapt (transparency, colors, etc.) I would feel naked without."
"To me the No. 1 HTML/CSS Editor, easy to use and powerful. Good to handle, available for many platforms, meanwhile also Mac and Win."
"Cairo-dock is very useful - above all under Lisa which lets the main menue appear on top left, if cairo-dock is used and the bottom panel is put out. With the different themes and the possibility to adapt it to your needs. For Mac-Users a welcome suit."
