We are hoping to bring some life into one of our ‘retired’ PCs, that will primarily be used by my six year old daughter. I’ve been wanting to try Linux on my own netbook, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. So I figured this should be a nice transition into learning the basics of Linux.
The PC is currently running Windows XP and want to convert to one of the kid friendly Linux distros. What would be my best 3-4 options for her (as well as myself) to try first?
Also, I hear using a bootable UBS drive is a good way to experiment with different operating systems, any objections? Do you have any other advice, hints, or tips to give me the best first impressions, for a possible long term future with Linux?
