Today, my son started to show real interest in computers and operating systems. I briefly explained how a computer works and that you can run any OS you want on it.
Also explained what Windows was, and he promptly said:
"But I like using Linux, it is better",
I asked him why, and he said:
"I like the penguin"
Tux *is* pretty cool
@selea loving that Tux appeal there
@selea Damn, my GF is really similar to that.
Is she running free software yet? :D
@selea Noooope ;-(
@selea Tux is the coolest!
@selea Sweet story!
Jag har installerat det på hans dator såklart :) Men jag tänker inte tvinga det på honom på något sätt, just nu är han inne på att pilla med Redstone i Minecraft - det är en bra start!
@selea Tux is love, Tux is life.
@selea Your son has good taste!
@selea how old is your son?
@selea one can't argue with that. Seems like his parents got the priorities right
Nice, How old is he?
@selea YUS! @selea, if you don't mind me saying get all Windows machines out of your life. I did this two years ago and getting HUGE gains. Only regret is I didn't use Linux 20 years ago. Cheers, I'm envious, I hope my children are like your son. The Penguins has always been my favorite hockey team. Simple because I love penguins.
We already have done that :)
Everyone in the family runs Linux since 4 years back. I see no reason to use Windows anymore.
I do however, have a SSD laying around somewhere with a Windows 10 installation, just in case the need would appear for that..
@selea awesome! My kids will be using Linux only.
@selea You have put a great son on the world my friend.
@selea wow amazing!
What distro does he uses?
MXLinux actually, he wanted it since it was first place on distrowatch xD
@selea wow you've got a smart child!
That's so sweet!
Does he play SuperTuxKart?
It's such a great game!
We play it from time to time :)
