My nephew JJ is almost two: so of course I'm setting him up a (literally this (now on Xfce; LibreOffice Writer; Iceweasel; Google Drive) computer (vaio-pcv-r556ds | Linux-Debain-Crunchbangcrun\#!-Openbox\*). For the first year I will lock it down with baby-friendly programs mostly only icons and widgets (e.g: solar system, bouncing ball, sliding block puzzle, moon and stuff) so no taskbar on WMs like: Educational Desktops(most *nix flavors offer free Edu-D-tops i.g. Sugar or educational-desktop-lxde and on, using Synaptic\others in #!) plus other D-tops as well so no down time just pick another environment and I will fix the other; Encyclopedias\Dictionaries, VLC(for movies\video, music and pictures), Tux Paint, AMOR, games-galore(!), Pysycache, Gcompriscompris, BlinKEn, Childsplay and an old TV tuner with a digital convert box(lets face it desktop effects will give him years of enjoyment). Iím also using thriftstore keyboards and such plus plexiglass with kids blocks (ABC123 ) and screws holding it over the old LCD monitor. DVDs and CDs \tower he will not touch for a long time (even longer in his uoıʇdǝɔɹǝd)...

Did I come up with this as JJs because I'm loving #!,,, maybe?
Altogether (not even) $100\Ä76 and a few hours learning;;; for him a lifetime. . .

Thanks All!

    Thanks. I wish I got started at two like my other nephew (now nine) who is learning to use Blender and Scratch in order to mod+ Rigs of Rods. They are so smart now a days (pictures foldout, p.s: now it's Minetest.)

    Pretty cool. Suprised even a 2 year old will sit still long enough.
