I gave my sister and her son and daughter a computer I rebuilt; instead of spending money I don’t have I decided to install Ubuntu as the Operating System instead of Windows XP (I use both at my home).
The kids themselves are very used to Windows at school and because of that they were a little timid to touch the Ubuntu computer.
Two weeks later I returned to see my sister and her little monsters and you could not believe the ease at which they have adapted to the Ubuntu computer!
The littlest one is playing Solitare, the older one is writing reports using Open Office and their mother who is a self described Techno-phobe, was dabbling.
They are going to hook up to the local ISP later this week — I can’t wait to see how they adapt to Mozilla.
Got to love kids!
