4 Children’s Linux Applications To Keep Your Kids Ahead of the Game

Filed under
Software

Today we’re going to continue our journey through the Ubuntu software repository looking for more children’s Linux educational software. As more and more parents allow their children to use the computer, setting up your kids with a Linux distribution makes even more sense:

* You don’t have to worry about security, system maintenance and updates.

* A separate, unprivileged account for your kids makes sure that anything they could possible to to the system is limited to one account; if anything goes wrong just delete it and create another one.

* Call of Duty, zombies, and other modern 3D PC games won’t run without additional emulation software and hackery. Safe to say, if your kid manages to play Crysis on a Ubuntu box using just WINE, his future’s looking bright.

Kanagram mixes up the letters of a word, creating an anagram. You have to guess what the mixed up word is. Kanagram is a great children’s Linux program that features several built-in word lists, hints, and a cheat feature which reveals the original word. Kanagram also has a vocabulary editor, so you can make the game be as hard as you want it to be.
