Been thinking of taking my old Dell Latitude C800 laptop and making it a machine for the kids to use. Here are my specs
- CPU: 866MHz
- RAM: Maxed at 512MB
- Video: 32MB Rage Mobility
- HDD: 20GB
- Network: Linksys WPC54GS v2. PCMCIA Wireless Card (Atheros)
I was thinking about putting DSL on it. I was gonna get the wireless working and then add a GUI, all plugins (Flash, PDF reader, etc.), Open Office and Educational Software for the kids. I was thinking of adding Gcompris but not sure what else to add. I looked into the Sugar platform but not so sure that is good.
Also I have 2 kids that will be using this, one is 5 and the other is 9. So I need 2 different levels of education software here. Also I would like to setup the machine to have a larger mouse cursor for the 5 year old.
What is everyone's thoughts on this?
