Interesting, a Linux variant just for kids…
The Kiddix Platform is a complete operating system and software environment for children, built from the ground up with your family’s needs and safety in mind.
Designed for elementary school children, Kiddix includes a word processor, calendar, email, web browser, games, educational material, a suite of innovative parental control tools, and more!
Kiddix can be installed on most PC’s and is easy to setup and completely hassle-free.
They have a “pay what you want” promotion this week for the folks who have kids and want to try it out – it would be interesting if future versions included Scratch and the Arduino IDE so kids can program and also do some electronics. Having this all on a bootable “live cd” would be good too 🙂
