Debian-news is about one simple thing - news about Debian GNU/Linux and the top free distributions based on Debian GNU/Linux.


Debian Jr. Live 20070326

This is a Custom Debian Distribution (CDD) project. Our goal is to make Debian an OS that children of all ages will want to use. Our initial focus will be on producing something for children up to age 8.

The primary goal of the Debian Jr. project is to make Debian an OS our children want to run. This involves some sensitivity to the needs of children as expressed by the children themselves. As parents, developers, older siblings, sys admins, we need to keep our ears and eyes open and discover what it is that makes computers desirable to children. Without this focus, we can easily get sidetracked trying to achieve abstract goals like “user friendliness”, “simplicity”, “low maintenance”, or “robustness” that, while they are certainly laudable goals for Debian as a whole, are too broad for addressing the specific needs and wants of children.
