Well, what do you expect? You won't find anything on any Winders
install that a kid that age might like. Even Solitaire, Minesweeper and
Hearts is out of their league, and that's the closest you'll find for
that age on a Windwoes machine. Paint is best for littler kids, ones
who haven't been spoiled by Leapfrog yet.

For we adults, we also have access to notepad and defrag, although both
of those are probably severely limited to fit in the hardware specs of
the XO. And we also have the age-old fun of pushing icons around on the
desktop to prove how "advanced" we are as WinDOS gurus.

Welcome to Hell! Here's your copy of Windows.
