Tuxmath: maths game for windows

Our laptop is loaded with 67 GB of educational contents.
They provide lots of books, materials, audio, video educational contents separately in local partition.
They also provide some educational games like tux-typing, tux-math.
Tux-Typing is installed by default. But tux-math was not installed.
don't worry you don't have to download it separately.
They already place the installed inside the Educational contents.
just go to TUX TYPE folder

Adding debian repositories to boss linux

Elcot provides a way to use the open-source technology for the students by
installing boss linux in laptop.
I know many of us don't even like to boot into boss linux. Simply
we neglect and go to windows stright.
They gave much more than other linux based operating systems.
They installed restricted extras, audio video codecs, vlc media player, wine 1.2(but now wine 1.5 is available) java and more.
Boss linux also have some drawbacks. Their repositories are just too old.
we can't install firefox browser by telling

$ apt-get install firefox

it will show some error message. simply firefox is not in their repositories.
