Debian-Edu/Skolelinux Reference Schools
"There are DebianEdu users all over the world. A very easy form of contribution is to let us know you exist and use Debian Edu (this motivates us very much and therefore is already a valuable contribution. )" - (quote from release notes for Skolelinux 3.0, 2007)
The DebianEdu projects provide a database of schools and users of the system to help the users find each other, and also to have an idea about where the users of the distribution are located. Please let us know about your installation, by registering in this database. To register, use this web form.
Schools who decide to use DebianEdu/Skolelinux as free Custom Debian Distribution, are kindly asked to sign up to this database. Thus,
- schools using DebianEdu/Skolelinux will easily be able to get in touch;
developers can follow the major types of environments (also check out PopCon);
- schools can get free extra publicity; every 50th school will get named in a press release (if they agree).
Cartographic representation: Maps
As registring schools are asked to provide there coordinates, we can draw nice maps demonstrating that DebianEdu is an international project:
Worldmap.svg is rendered just in time (PHP) and displays all current Skolelinux maps if you own a SVG capable viewer (ksvg, mozilla, opera; inkscape).

By the end of 2008, almost 160 schools are known to run Skolelinux. Of course, registration is voluntary, so actual numbers are even higher. The gross, namely 99, is within Norway, the mother land of DebianEdu/Skolelinux. Approx. 33 registered schools are in German speaking countries (de, ch, at). There are further schools in France, Spain, Denmark, Poland, Mali, Eritrea, Brazil, Peru, Philippines, Japan, Ireland, Greece, Belgium, and U.K..
