Qimo - Linux For Kids

Qimo is a lightweight, complete, free, Linux operating system for children, designed to run on a stand-alone computer. Qimo comes pre-installed with educational games for children aged 3 and up.


Quimo is similar to Edubuntu, but Edubuntu is geared towards schools and network environments, whereas Quimo is designed for home use.

The pre-installed software includes Tux Math, Tuxpaint, Tuxtype, Gcompris and Childsplay.

Qimo has low system requirements, and is a great, cheap and easy way to set up an old computer for your kids to play on.

We have launched a new kid's Linux this summer. Its name is DoudouLinux ( http://www.doudoulinux.org/ ) and its main goals are the following:

* be as easy to use as a gaming console
* provide as much kid oriented apps as possible (currently around 50)
* drive small children into mastering computer use from age 2
* be natively in kids language, we currently support 8 languages and provide 7 additional demo languages
* be simple for Dad and Mum too (no administration, no updates – it's read-only system, no naughty web sites – thanks to web content filtering, etc.)


Well we propose you to give it a try and let us know ;). Thank you in advance.
