cripes . . .

does it never occur to all those people who produce "kiddy friendly 
operating systems" from time to time that it might not be a bad idea to 
sit some kids down in front of a computer....

I got 90% negative feedback today from a "I'll give you pretzels and 
Fanta" group of
my kids who I dragged into the school for a "go" with DouDou [muffled 
mirth; surely the
French should have realised how 'that' name would go down in the 
Anglophone world].

Oh, well, naive Richmond goes back to his Pentium 3s and 4s running 
Ubuntu 5.10 and
his, own, hacked desktop . . .
