UberStudent 3.0 is Amazing!

I'm pleased to announce the release of UberStudent 3.0 Plato!
Get it here.
Version 3.0 is a major leap forward for UberStudent. It is in many ways a dividing line between itself and prior editions in terms of both stability and features. The singular most important advancement is the UberStudent repository! It represents months and months of work. Updates and any needed fixes will be quick and seamless.

Lightweight Edition Released

I'm very pleased to announce the release of UberStudent Lightweight Edition. It is designed to reinvigorate older or slower computers, and for Netbooks, as well as for anyone who simply prefers a lightweight Linux distribution. Great care and testing has gone in to aiming this release as the most feature-filled, polished, and stable lightweight Linux distribution available for education, as well as for general purposes.

Why UberStudent?

Conceptually, UberStudent began in December 2009 when I could no longer stand a certain "itch" I felt. I was very dissatisfied with the state of Linux distributions for the higher education and advanced secondary sectors and felt compelled to do something about it. Having worked in higher education, it was little wonder to me to read research that found that the unfavorability rating of Linux among EdTech professionals in higher education was in the mid-90 percentage range. That's awful, to say the least.
