doudou GNU/Linux, what?

You read it right. Pls spell it as doodoo GNU/Linux as per the home page of the project. The project is started by a french developer but is ready with majority of languages in the world and the developer would be happy if anybody would help him with other languages.

Why is it special?

It is for children. It is built on the ever dependable GNU/Debian Linux base and is very pleasing on the eye. I am very sure that children would love the interface and be at home with this pleasing distro. There is also ongoing efforts from the developers to incorporate "parental control" so that children would not be taken to un-wanted places over the public network. There have been numerous efforts to make a GNU/Linux spin for children. But none have had enough success. ButI believe that doudou is on the right path and users in turn should give their valuable feedback to the developers so that they can take the project in the right direction.

I am one who believe strongly that children should be taught of freedom concepts in the earlier ages itself and what better way than to introduce them to the "free as in freedom" concept of GNU/Linux.

Welcome aboard kids. The tux welcomes u.

Nobody can deter me away from "free as in freedom" concept seeded by Sri RMS. See to it that u dont make fun of my belief. If u think otherwise, no need to comment.
