You mean content (knowledge) delivery I assume. Then why limit that to a group based on the operating system? There are more than enough technoligies available to make it plattform independent, the classical ones like the RFCs are also free.

There are many approaches to this:
- go through docs. There are mountains of them, starting from the pages in http://docs.moodle.org/ various online-publications of other Moodle-sites, dissertations, Videos, books, ...
- Posting your requirements in a forum, "Comparisons and Advocacy" http://moodle.org/mod/forum/view.php?id=2784 is the right place I guess. Go through the currenct discussion, you can also do a forum search for whatever criteria you are looking for.
I am moving to the new forum...
The project must contain a Learning Management System to deliver the courses. The courses will include PCCs and USFs. Moodle seems like a good application for this. These courses allow the students to come into a server node system, that we will design, and create virtual servers within our server farm. They can then save their images until they are ready for the next assignment. The goal is to get a 4 year degree in advanced Linux training totally on-line.
There is another side of the grant. We must keep detail records of the infrastructure we create and the LMS development. These materials will be given to the NSF for dissemination. It is this part of the process that I am not sure of about moodle. We need a product that allows us to develop wiki pages for discussion and a method of storing development data for the public.
I'd recommend possibly looking at integrating Drupal and Moodle. Drupal is a lot more flexible when it comes to custom applications. You can't beat Moodle for
Also each different interface your users have to learn cost time, money, and risks overwhelming the users willingness to try new things.
It's relatively inexpensive to share usernames/passwords using external db auth, and managing enrollment from Drupal using external db can also be done. Once you get into SSO and content sharing, things get much more expensive though.
We've built tabs, menus, and a page based course format available here:
And will soon have a pretty nice content delivery/translation system, all as Moodle modules/formats.
This format can be seen in action at http://ciscoinstitute.net if folks are interested.
