As some of you know, I am a level one tech support volunteer for a public
middle school in San Francisco.  Pursuant to the Microsoft Anti-Trust
settlement in California, each school district in California is entitled to
vouchers good for the purchase of hardware and a separate set of vouchers
for software.

One of the teachers at the school has just requested a tablet PC for use in
conjunction with her overhead projector.  I am wondering what
recommendations people can make with regard to the good, the bad, and the
ugly of Linux on tablet PCs.  For clarification, please understand that the
teacher wants to be able to draw directly on a touch-screen PC.  She wants
to be able to simultaneously project that image onto an overhead with a

Also, this same teacher wants to do poetry readings with her students.  She
wants the students to be able to broadcast their voices to speakers, while
simultaneously recording the reading for later editing and remixing.

Any advice this list has in this regard for open source-only solutions for
this teacher would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any tips!
