My biggest worry for now is a selection of packages that have a Dutch
locale. The form and the shape of the distribution is less relevant.
Although Dutch secondary school kids are fully fluent in English, the
foundation relies on distributing software that is available as much
as possible in their native language. I could double check this aspect
with the other members of the foundation.

I would be interested in having an image that can be easily copied and
installed on a flash drive, ideally without repartitioning the drive,
so that the student can reuse their drive either as a live usb or a as
portable storage for their own private files.
