[News] The Children Love GNU/Linux on the Desktop/Laptop

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu’s Best Hope: Convert the Kids

,----[ Quote ]
| My children have been using Kubuntu for the past three years without any 
| complaints, save one. The network administrator forgot to install Flash so 
| that Nickjr.com and PBSKids.org would work properly after a fresh install 
| awhile back. After I got their games working properly, they have used the 
| desktop with great success doing everything they need.    



Software as a Subversive Activity, Part 5: Indoctrinating the Next Generation
of Linux Geeks

,----[ Quote ]
| The boys are still in Windows most of the time. But they think Tux the
| penguin is cute, and that's a start. They still ask: “can I play Linux?” and
| want their own Linux machine. (The plan, for now, is to get them set with
| bootable CDs or flash drives.) Convert them now and you've taken over the
| next generation! Mwah hah hah hah!


Switching your kids to Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.


Child’s Play: Linux Conversion Through Education

,----[ Quote ]
| Successful and peaceful conversion of a population to any new concept occurs
| through its children. If you want to make people recycle plastic bottles,
| start a recycling program in Elementary School. Do you want to introduce a
| new type of mathematics? Introduce it in Elementary School. Do you have an
| internationally accepted system of measurement that you want everyone to use?
| OK, that last one doesn’t count.


My Vietnamese student using the Asus Eee PC

,----[ Quote ]
| 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 :-)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
