Sophie's first laptop
I'm about to bequeath Sophie the IBM 560x I inherited at my previous job. It has Red Hat 8.x on it, and I'm trying to figure out how I can make it a little more kid-friendly. I don't think I want to go back to Windows on it, not least because it's a royal pain to install Windows on a machine without a CD-ROM.
I found the Linux For Kids site and the Linux 4 Kids site. The first hasn't been updated since January 2002, and the second looks to be a business idea that never got off the ground. Any other pointers to information on helping kids get a good start with computers?
