Kids heart OLPC (no matter what the critics say)
All these years later, Istra (now 5 years old) still plays with her OLPC — proud to have her "very own laptop". Lately she mostly uses it to run Tux Paint (a simple paint program with stamps and magic!), and to go online and play starfall (a flash-based web site with games teaching kids how to read).
The OLPC is slow and a bit annoying for us adults — but Istra is favoring it over our big fast computer for doing her stuff these days. And I hate to have to afflict the poor little thing with flash to play Starfall. But it’s hers. She loves it.
In is picture we also see Emeth, only 3 years old, showing Istra where the button she is looking for in Tux Paint is. He loves Tux Paint as well. And he actually somehow knows where all the letters are on a keyboard, or buttons on a UI, faster and more absolutely than Istra quite often.

Funny, my first PC was about the same size as his (although it had to use the TV as its display), can you recall the Sinclair ZX Spectrum?
