== Goals ==
Our goals are:

 * to provide a complete free software solution:
   * tailored for the needs and use cases of educational scenarios,
   * pre-configured for easy installation (standalone, as well as network-wide roll-out).
   * easy-to-use, maintain, and administer,
   * supporting '''your''' language natively.

 * to classify and package all free software related to education.

 * to write documentation describing how to use the various software applications (in an educational context).

 * to achieve international availability, translated into many languages.


== Homepage and Wiki ==
 * The Debian Edu project is represented at its homepage http://www.skolelinux.org
 * This Wiki http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu is intended to assist active users and developers.

----

= Getting started =
 * Consider running a [[/HowTo/TestCDinstall |test install]] using virtual machines.
 * A [[/Hardware|list of tested hardware]] is available. Please help update it with any computers you have used.


== Download ==
 * See how to [[/Download|download]] or [[/GetStarted/Cd|order]] Debian Edu.


== Install ==
 * Read through the [[#Documentation|Documentation]]. The first chapters of the [[/Documentation/Squeeze|manual]] would provide a good overview. ;-)


== Use ==
 * Start using your new system! If you encounter difficulties not covered by the documentation, please add to it after you get help to resolve them.
 * Remember that Debian Edu is 99.9% Debian, so almost all help for using Debian also applies to Debian Edu.
