truly excellent collection of software geared towards kids.

unfortunately, the developers appear to have abandoned this wonderful distro of linux...

i kind of wish they hadn't abandoned this, but one can install many of the software packages
on another debian based distro to update things.

alternately, if i am not mistaken... one could give network access and install updated packages
our selves.

ps. my 5yo son loves this distro.

What a nice educational distro for young children.
I tried installing it on a quick USB3 stick but the load time was untenable.
Running it using Virtualbox from the hard drive, load time was excellent.
I set memory at 1GB and my gran-daughters were delighted.

System was a 10 year old HP dv9000 running 32-bit Win10 to fit the limited 2GB max. RAM for this HP.

Positive feedback for tasks accomplished, friendly intuitive interface, learning skills from basic mouse skills to learning letters, puzzles, ABCs, etc.
