Linux and a 9-year-old
Edubuntu, a nine year old, and savvy parents--sounds textbook right? Next, the headline: Pentagon Hacked by 9-year-old. This guy has an interesting idea though, put his nine year old on an inexpensive Linux machine for his school, gaming, and general computing pleasure. Not a bad idea, and it does give him the advantage of doing something with an old PC he had lying around. Is it an option for most people with older computers? I think not. Linux is great, but it can be tricky. Sometimes it isn't worth the hassle, but for this nine year old it seems like it will work well. What would you give your kids, and why?
