An OS for Kids
6 years, 1 month ago Posted in: Technology 1

So one of our laptops died so my wife took over my old MacBook and now the kids don’t have a computer any more.  So I’ve decided I’m going to blow away my old PC that is just collecting dust in my office and let them use it.  Rather than just to the default Windows install, I decided to poll the world what would be a better alternative, Ubuntu or Windows.  To my surprise, one of my friends (@virtualandy) let me know about Edubuntu.  Then I went and googled for Kids OSs and I also ran across Qimo 4 Kids as well.  So I thought that I would download them and try them out to see which I liked better for the kids.  I have a Preschooler and a Elementary school aged kid, so we’ll see how they like it!  I’ll try to remember to post an update, but for now I thought I’d at least share the discovery!  If you have other suggestions, let me know!
