[News] Kids Love GNU/Linux, Find It Easier Than Macs

Hash: SHA1

My Vietnamese student using the Asus Eee PC

| On Friday, I was so surprised to see one of my 8th Grade Students, Candy, 
| using the simplified desktop with her Eee PC.  She was even using StarOffice, 
| the propriety version of OpenOffice, with little difficulty.  Linux is 
| difficult, eh?  Well, I doubt she really could tell the difference between 
| Windows and Linux anyway :-)

| The modified Ubuntu OS is one of it’s stronger points. It works well and 
| combines the ease of use of the eee Xandros tabbed OS with the power of the 
| full Ubuntu desktop. In fact, you can switch back and forth between the 
| launch bar and a regular desktop via a new menu option. The launch bar has 
| nice effects with zooming in on each category’s apps while bluring the 
| background. It gives it a very modern and professional feel. Students who 
| tested it didn’t comment at all about the UI being different (in contrast, 
| they all complain about not knowing how to use the new iMacs we have).        



Switching your kids to Linux

| P.S. They all seem to like KDE4 in Intrepid. If you haven't tried KDE4, you
| really ought to give it a shot even if you're a true Gnome fan. I suspect you
| may be pleasantly surprised.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
