If my Children were pre school to 6th grade OLPC OS Would be a great
secure tool. Years ago gathering old laptops locally and installing the system on them
then giving them to local students. was a cool project.
Children learning to code at 8 years old and writing music even earlier.
Wonder why parts of this are not ported to android

Sugar On A Stick is pretty much OLPC

I have a couple legacy PCs set up for my 5-year old girls, but most of those distros in that article are old and unsupported, and I personally prefer something up-to-date and supported, and since I maintain the machine for them, I'm very happy using Bodhi.

If you're looking for kid-friendly apps and games to install on debian/ubuntu distros, there are tons available from "debian junior" described here:

Another source of games I've found useful are console roms, my old PCs emulate gba and snes games perfectly (and psx games marginally).

If I offended you or implied your link wasn't useful, I'm sorry. I was interested in your post and read the article too. I was just stating my opinion for arguments sake, any opinion is valid, thanks for posting.

no offense - just should have checked the info better. but since my daughter is already in college did not pursue this further.
