> I like the idea behind debian Jr. I had initialli introduced a kid i know
to Mepis, Linspire, Mandriva One, Mandrake Move, and a number of other "live
cd" versions of linux. He caught on really fast, and blew my mind away with
what he learned in such a short amount of time. Kids can be brilliant. All i
say, is be careful what you arm them with. I gave the kid too much, too
fast, and he soon learned how to hack. No denying the truth, the kid was too
smart, lol.
