Why was EdUBudgie Linux created?

I used to have a very long and wordy philosophy on here but I have decided to change that.  

EdUBudgie Linux is a free operating system for teachers, students, or schools to use if they choose to do so. 

That's about it.  

By high school, students should have access to all information, period.  The philospohy here is to help students by giving them software that they don't have to pay for but which is also up to date and secure so that they may access that information.  Ideally, this should help to level the playing field a bit for students from underfunded schools.

I would also love to get more people using Linux as a desktop as well.  Open Source is the way of the future.
