Ten reasons Linux is the best choice for kids

written by Jack Wallen for TechRepublic

"The problem with working in IT is that when we go home, our job often continues. Sometimes, keeping our children's computers running can be a bigger challenge than sorting out the adults at work.

But if you install Linux at home, you can avoid the headaches. That's because sound reasons exist for migrating young users from other operating systems."

He gives the following reasons...

1. Viruses and malware
2. Security
3. Cost effectiveness
4. Age-specific tools
5. Netbooks
6. Agile learners

I know that my two (8 & 5) are loving their uBuntu Netbooks.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
