dubuntu 23.10

And we're all here. Amy has had the pleasure of announcing the second flavor of Ubuntu for education since they rose from the ashes of it. What has been available for a few hours is dubuntu 23.10, and its leader today celebrated the good reception that Edubuntu had after its return six months ago. Being a system for education, it is understood that the children will have something to say, and in their development they have received the help of the son of the leaders of Ubuntu Studio and Edubuntu (they are a couple, for those who do not know).

As happens in Ubutu Studio with Kubuntu, Edubuntu 23.10 is based on Ubuntu, on which all the packages that may be interesting in the world of teaching and learning are added. The list of new features is what you have below.
