Install all of the kids games on a Linux machine and
place it in line of sight. Tux Piant and Potato Guy
(aka KTuberling) have my 5 year old niece occupied for
hours (no comment on reports that computer games are
used as cheap childminders...) Worst case scenario
there is a Windows port of Tux Paint and a Java
version of Frozen Bubble.

Well thats my spare time sorted then...

On a serious note, you are probably right Mo,
education is a great area for Linux advocacy, but as
Jono will probably say, he investigated this some time
back and found that Research Machines (aka RM - UK
educational IT provider) hold the reins on this one
and are staunch Windows users/suppliers.

With no special genius ideas of my own, I will listen
to the rest of the thread...
