Educational: For The Little Ones

Have a youngster or two in the house, or coming to visit? A wonderful, educational software package to keep them busy can be found in your Software Manager. It’s called Gcompris.

Later, there are several fun games to play, like chess, and connect 4.

A world of warning though, when launched, the software jumps right to full screen mode, with lots of loud music. You’ll want to set the window size and music volume ahead of time, to your liking.
