My main suggestion would be to change the focus from "free educational
software", e.g. no cost, to the benefits of the Sugar Learning Platform and
the other packages you're highlighting as quality educational tools in and
of themselves. I don't know if this makes sense, but I feel that promoting
free software as no cost cheapens it to a degree.
