    Tux Paint

    Don't know if anyone has mentioned this but it is a little paint app mainly for primary schools really but i enjoyed trialling it out

    Tux Paint

    It is IMO on par with RMs colour Magic and it is available to download for OS X, Windows and Linux.

    It is still being developed (new release out in November apparently) and its FREE. I honestly recommend anyone working for primnary schools to check it out. Great fun.

    Stamps available to download too and again free. Pretty good stamps as well and library is quite large. They do also scale although some not so well.

    My 2 year old son loves it!!

    Anyhow just thought i would mention it.

    We use it instead of MS Paint. The kids at my school love it.

    This was one of the first bits of software I rolled out when I joined the school I am at now - great bit of software - was going to try and help in the development of it but with the birth of my second son, I never got the time.

    We primarily use it on the OS X side of our boot camp setup so as to give a Colour Magic alternative. This fills the gap quite nicely so whatever partition they have booted from they get to draw with a simple to use app.

    Great stuff. Glad to hear of a few more users out there.

    Re: Tux Paint

    I think this is a a great software for primary schools

    I have it running of a app server at one school and want to deploy it at another problem being we have a rm server here.

    Shame they dont release msi's for this
