I've got a good friend who's a doctor. He's got 2 kids, one 6 the other 12(?) and they both like using the internet. Both his kids are fairly comfortable using computers (as kids often are).
He says they've been using Windows98 and it's just rubbish as his kids keep saving different preferences etc etc and tweaking stuff. Linux of course does proper multiuser, and I reckon they might be better off with it - BSD or Slackware might not be appropriate though ...
Like many parents, he's worried about his kids seeing pictures of ladies and animals and such things that we have no problem with (right?
). So I'm really looking for recommendations for censorship, childwatch, fleshblocking software - you know stuff to stop you looking at p0rn.
Also any suggestions for kids programs preferably with a learning element - I know they're out there and yes I can use google but first hand testimonials are always good for this one.
Any other recommendations?
