Here this is unique for the Edubuntu distribution. Since this Distribution is mainly targeted for the Educational Sector and you find there very often the LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) Servers in use it will offer you to set up a LTSP Server so that diskless clients can boot from the network into an Edubuntu  Desktop from the LTSP Server. The other option is being presented to support schools with low end or even older hardware. The Gnome 2.x is less resource hungry and therefore suited for those hardware.
