It seems he remembered the user name and password, logged on, opened Chrome, and listened to music via Youtube all by himself. For basic stuff like this, Ubuntu is simple enough for a small kid like him.

Or it may be an accident, and you can be unconscious or dead. If you are worried about intellegence services, they do not need DNA, they can always get you.

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
