    Computer for my nephew

    He was three years old in September. I have a ten year old laptop which I want to set up for him, but I'd like ideas and advice on which way to go.

    Do I go down the Linux route, and used a custom-tailored distro, or is there an overlay for Windows that works well? Ideas for software are also welcome - TuxPaint is a must etc.

    Cheers for that! I'll play about with it in Virtualbox for a bit.
