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"

@selea Du har sΓ€kert koll, men jag har sett projekt med 7-8-Γ₯ringar som anvΓ€nder Scratch pΓ₯ synnerligen kreativa sΓ€tt. Om det Γ€r sΓ₯ att din sons intresse ligger Γ₯t programmeringshΓ₯llet :) scratch.mit.edu/

@sm0rux

Jag har installerat det pΓ₯ hans dator sΓ₯klart :) Men jag tΓ€nker inte tvinga det pΓ₯ honom pΓ₯ nΓ₯got sΓ€tt, just nu Γ€r han inne pΓ₯ att pilla med Redstone i Minecraft - det Γ€r en bra start!

@selea one can't argue with that. Seems like his parents got the priorities right :blobfoxthumbsup:

@selea wow, I'm impressed. Mine is 8 but I don't how I could start. Maybe by assembling one of the computer I have around.
Anyway, it sounds like fun. You motivated me. πŸ‘

@dumboLeNelephant

Maybe you can let your kid chose the distro? I have no idea, but that could help?

@redstarfish

@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.

@powerhouse

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..

@techit

MXLinux actually, he wanted it since it was first place on distrowatch xD

@selea
That's so sweet!

Ps.
Does he play SuperTuxKart?
It's such a great game!
