Schools Linux 4.4 is the new version de Escuelas Linux, an educational distribution designed for the implementation of free software in educational centers of basic to upper secondary education.

Schools Linux 4.4 has improved its support for UEFI for a simpler and more user-friendly installation on computers designed for Windows 8 and Windows 10. In addition, many packages have been updated to the latest versions, such as the LibreOffice office suite, Mozilla Firefox, Geogebra, GParted and Chromium. All the packages integrated in the ISO that you can download from Sourceforge, both the Live version for 86-bit x32-32 computers and for the 64-bit AMD64 (Intel EM64T).
For those who do not know Bodhi Linux, the distro on which it is based, is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution that uses the Enlightenment Window Manager to consume less resources. It's funny, but this new news comes just after having talked about this same distro in a megapost that we made in LinuxAdictos.com in which we list the rarest Linux distributions and unknown in an act of getting the "anti-article", since the vast majority are destined to analyze the most important or better distros ...
