Schools is a distribution oriented to the educational world. A distribution that is based on Bodhi Linux to offer the school world the possibility of having the latest software in exchange for few resources.
However, the best thing about Schools 5.1 is not this but the news for administrators that it offers. News that will make life easier for school computer room administrators.
Thus, it has been incorporated and improved the RestoreUsuario, ForzaUsuario and RestoreIconos functions. Updating Flash has been simplified and even new versions of the most used tools have been included, that is, office suites and web browsers.
The RestoreUser function is in charge of resetting everything to the official parameters of the user's account. ForzaUsuario takes care of leaving everything as if it were a factory reset, that is, it deletes documents and configurations while RestoreIconos solves some problems that administrators are having with some icons.
Schools 5.1 is oriented to work with teams with few resources
It also includes the latest version of Bodhi Linux, the base distro for Escuela 5.1 that is also based on Ubuntu LTS. Something that makes the kernel is 4.4 LTS although it can be updated to version 4.9. LibreOffice, OpenOffice and FreeOffice are also in their latest version, something interesting if you want to have NotebookBar. Despite the fact that the web browser is Mozilla Firefox, Escuelas 5.1 has Vivaldi, Chrome and Midori, at the choice of the student or the teacher.
Along with these applications, there are other programs such as Geogebra, LibreCAD, OpenShot or Minetest that will help the student's learning as well as have fun in an educational way. Currently we can get 5.1 Schools from their website or we can also get an update package that will help us update the distribution if we already have it installed on our computer.
The good thing about Escuelas is its adaptation to teams with few resources as well as its administrator functions for teachers with little expertise in the subject, something that will surely help both the teacher and the student. In any case, Escuelas 5.1 is not only for schools, it can also be installed on personal computers.
