Installed Edubuntu on Dell E520

Today I installed Edubuntu 8.04 on top of Ubuntu 8.04 on Margaret's computer. This consisted of placing the Edubuntu Add-On CD (433 MB) in the drive when a pop-up asks what stuff you want to install.
As there's plenty of space available I installed almost everything.
Really, though, I have to say Edubuntu is by no means spectacular and unlikely to attract the attention of somebody like Margaret who is intent on finding her own games from the internet and playing them.
Basically, Edubuntu consists, besides a different boot splash, of an Education category in Applications where a bunch of games and other supposedly educational pursuits.
At first sight, seems a bit dissappointing.
