Linux distros for kids
I have a couple of old netbooks that I want to tidy up and give to the kids for christmas. I was going to put a light linux distro on and then try and lock it down for kids use, but then read of kid specific distros. Has anyone tried one (aracer?) any recommendations?
Or any Linux applications I should be thinking of for kids – whether content control or games activities?

I cant get the qimo iso to run off a bootable USB so I had a go at Sugar
And I cant say I like it. Very alien (more so than normal even for Linux 😉 ) and really it’s more aimed at the computer per child program with collaborative classroom groups etc.
So any others in from the day shift with ideas?
Anyone tried Edubuntu? I think thats the next one to try…Posted 4 years agoDufferMember
What age kids? I only ask, as my 4- and 6-year olds can use Windows 7 for some basic things (playing flash games, searching for pictures of kittens, drawing pictures of “ultimate epic awesome power rangers”, etc.
If they can work W7 (with a little guidance initially), then they’ll be fine with Mint or similar.Posted 4 years agoryderredmanMember
Oh and FWIW, docky is always a nice little UI addition: http://wiki.go-docky.com/index.php?title=Welcome_to_the_Docky_wikiPosted 4 years ago
