The K6-2, Debian 5-LXDE and not-Qimo

Qimo itself — which is to say, the idea of Qimo as a collection of software aimed at kids — isn’t hard to duplicate. And that fact, combined with my desire to take the Debian 5-LXDE CD for a spin, convinced me to come up with my own rendition of the Desktop for Kids. More here

Debian’s version strikes me as a little odd, in that there seem to be some rather heavyweight additions to the default arrangment. OpenOffice.org is in there, which I suppose is out of deference to the need for a full-featured, complete office suite.

And that behemoth GDM is running the show, instead of something like SLiM, or even Qingy.
