Intel has commissioned Canonical to produce a derivative of Ubuntu for the Intel ClassmatePC. The Edubuntu variant is the closest starting point, for a customised version which will install and run effectively on the platform with a sub-set of education applications.

Statement of Expectation

Initial Enablement Work for Reference Platform

This work will produce a custom image of Edubuntu based on Edubuntu 7.10 that will address the issues identified by the Intel and Canonical teams at the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Seville, Spain. This will be an unsupported release without maintenance updates that can be used for demos and securing design wins.

  • An initial Edubuntu 7.10 Proof of Concept version will be produced in 2007 for the ClassmatePC Generation 1.5 hardware for the purpose of demonstration and design wins.

Fully Supported Release

  • A fully supported release will be delivered for Edubuntu 8.04 and Edubuntu 8.10
