Sounds like something for the various distro developers that lurk.  It
would be very interesting to add the necessary Arabic hooks to Skolelinux
to meet the various Arabic educational needs out there (cost is a HUGE
factor).  Anyone interested in looking further into this ?  I have a
feeling it would be a cross between assembling a list of what is missing
(in terms of capabilities) and a list of what needs to change (in terms
of games and educational content) for us to move forward with this.
There was a post, some hours ago, talking about Gcompris - this would
certainly fall into the same'ish camp.
