Submission + - Qimo 4 Kids version 2.0 Released (linux-magazine.com)

mhall119 writes: Qimo (pronounced 'kim-oh') is a desktop operating system designed for kids. Based on the open source Ubuntu Linux desktop, Qimo comes pre-installed with educational games for children aged 3 and up.

Qimo's interface has been designed to be intuitive and easy to use, providing large icons for all installed games, so that even the youngest users have no trouble selecting the activity they want.

Qimo 2.0 features support for multiple accounts and replaces the eToys application on the launcher with Laby, a educational game that teaches children the basics of programming. A new character is introduced to the Qimo environment. Illa (pronounced 'ee-la') is a polar bear.
