Included Software and Screenshots

Edubuntu is put together by many pieces of software that is written by many people working across many projects. We call these projects 'upstream' projects. Below, we include screen shots of some of the software included in Edubuntu, as well as links to the upstream websites. Upstream websites often contain additional screenshots, information and documentation.
