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.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
