Kubuntu evangelism for all ages

We had a small party at our house last Friday. Our youngest (age 5) got quite attached to one of the guests (age 8) and had to show her just everything. At one point I looked into the room that has the kid’s computer (Kubuntu 8.10 with KDE 4.1.3) and saw that she had logged into her account and was giving her friend a tour. They were using Kolourpaint and making some very nice pictures together.
Due to this spontaneous act of Kubuntu evangelism, I had a chat with her dad and he left with one of my Kubuntu ShipIt CDs. Her dad uses Linux at work some, but had never considered it at home.

    You should have posted some of the artwork. 🙂

    Is this not the same layout as the Microsoft Windows program paint.exe?

    @Daniel: I didn’t discuss licensing, so I don’t have redistribution rights.
    @Michael: I have no idea. It’s been years since I’ve looked at MS Paint. I think it’s rather beside the point in any case.
