Hi:
I know that one reason some of my relatives don't change to linux is becuase the have little kids and according to them there are no programs for kids available in linux. I just found an article about freeduc

and decide to tried it. I must say I let my 10 year old cousin tired the live CD on her laptop and she loves it. She is going crazy trying to use all the programs, the best part is that my aunt lalso loves the games. she is always worries that some kids games are too violents and not educational enough. Well now my cousin wants me to install all those programs in her computers that way she does not has to run the live Cd. I don't think that all of them are availabel for ubuntu, but some of them have debian packages. Just figure I would let some of you know maybe most of you know about it already.
