Well most kids would just do anything to sit in front of the TV on a Saturday morning with their cereal in dripping from the bowl. (I know I did back in my time ), well Not my daughter.. she did all her shores very early (Feed the turtle, make her bed, wash her face, had breakfast) all because she knew she would get to use the good old laptop (HP omnibook) we keep for her. she just loves sitting and playing with TUXPAINT…
The Beauty of it lies where there are no preconceptions or judgement passed on Ubuntu. she just uses it. there is no comparing… or complaining about not having support. She is only 5 and she can use linux… . in fact my wife has failed to find an alternative on other operating systems that can attract my daughter.
I can see my daughter developing some nice plugins for gimp soon .
Kudos to: OG maciel (His children are the TRUE beta testers of just about any educational software)
and to the Edubuntu project for the magnificent effort they put into their work… here at my place they have one happy user… and more to come.
