andLinux is easy to download and install so you can, literally, have a Linux system up and running in minutes. I installed the 653 MB KDE version and it works perfectly.
All the standard application packages, including the educational programs, are provided with the full version so you can start experiencing the KDE desktop right away.
andLinux also provides wiki and forum support.
I am not sure if there would be any advantage in having both systems installed in a classroom setting but andLinux certainly provides you with an easy way to experience Linux if you are contemplating a change.
