The Muslim Edition of Ubuntu looks to be a pretty cool OS. There doesn't seem to be much difference from basic Ubuntu - apart from the great wallpaper, the colour scheme and the prayer time warning message, Quran study tool, Arabic learning software. Hopefully this will see Linux taken up in temples and then propagated to the rest of the community.
