Lernstick is a Live Linux distribution with focus on education; it is usually installed on USB sticks. To provide up-to-date software choice on a solid base, it uses a combination of Debian stable with official and custom backports. Although the distribution is mainly used on removable media (USB sticks, USB hard disks, SD cards, etc.), it can also be installed on internal hard drives.
