Submission + - How young is too young for Linux? 2

entt writes: I have an 8 year old son who is fond of computers, mainly because of games, naturally. Last week when I got home, I saw that my xubuntu laptop is open. I asked my son who opened it. He replied, he did. Once I defined a user for him on xubuntu, so that he can google his homework and print related stuff. 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.
I wanted to share this, for those who think Linux is only for geeks. If you intend to do it, and approach with no prejudice, it is just a few clicks away.

Comment all DNAs to database (Score 1) 316

I love statistics and from such an enormous database, very interesting scientific data could be fetched. Besides, everybody can break the law. When it is done. police should be able to detect that. 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.
