Qimo is great it's just very limited. My kids have had it since they were 3 and the only thing they still play is tux.

unfortunately, when it comes to fun and educational for young kids there is infinitely more stuff for windows. that's why I thought wine would be a big plus.

Qimo is just Ubuntu by the way. With the kids dock and some very old games. I just think someone with talent could do better and like I said it's a niche that would be noticed in the linux world.

another good alternative would be something aimed at the elderly. There is a neat UI called eldy but the linux version supposedly made for mint (again just ubuntu customized) sucks.

edit: a huge improvement for qimo would be to have firefox always open in kidzui mode and added to the dock.

I can't recommend kidzui enough.It's great. But with qimo your kid has to be able to find FF and open it in normal (not good for kids on internet) mode.
