Nacho Installs Ubuntu. Looking for Kid-Friendly Apps.
. I had two HDDs fail at the same time on an old computer that the neighborhood kids use to surf the web. I went ahead and retired the old P3/550MHz machine and replaced it with a P4/1.8GHz unit I had laying around. Instead of using Win XP Pro, I decided this would be a good time to start switching my computers to Linux. Downloaded Ubuntu 8.10 and once I figured out that a 2.5GB HDD was too small (Ubuntu would install OK, but run out of disk space when updating) and upgraded to a 20, the install went without a hitch.
. Looking for suggestions on "edutainment" apps to install for kids from ~5yo to ~16yo. Computer is a 1.8GHz P4 with 256MB RAM, so the apps can't be resource hogs. TIA.
