A family's experience with Free Software, the Internet and autism

,----[ Quote ]
| Donatella Both my kids use three operating 
| systems without any problems, in spite of 
| cliches and of Nikko's autism. They watch 
| YouTube, listen to music and do many other 
| things on Windows, Linux and Mac without 
| noticing any difference, with the exception of 
| the unintelligible error messages that Windows 
| sends every time it crashes. I prefer when they 
| use the other systems because I am the one who 
| has to restart the computer when that happens!
| Stop: Apart from being forced to use an 
| operating system that you really don't like, 
| did you have other problems while using 
| computers or the Internet?

Linux Mint: Making Linux easy

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint 8 also simplifies the desktop
| by doing away with the dual-menubar layout
| preferred by Ubuntu in favour of a single
| menubar across the bottom of the screen.
| Mint also trims down the tripartite
| Applications/Places/System menu of Ubuntu
| and condenses this into a single Main Menu
| flyout. This adds a layer of simplicity to
| the Mint desktop and mimics the style of
| the Windows desktop, with which most users
| are familiar.
| Despite criticisms over its use of non-
| free software tools and its obvious
| catering for entry-level users, Linux Mint
| has clearly found its niche, regularly
| ranked among the five most popular Linux
| versions on Linux tracker Distrowatch.com.
| Long time Linux users probably won't be
| rushing out to try Mint Linux but for
| users looking to take a first step into
| Linux, Linux Mint 8 could be one of the
| better starting points.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
