"We have had friends visiting from the Netherlands for the past
few days, with two early-teen-age children. The children, of
course, want to be on the computers whenever we are at home. I
thought that might be a bit of a problem, since there are very
(very) few computers around the house with Windows loaded. After a
few days, it is obvious that I underestimated the children.
"First, the daughter wanted to play the music from an iPod-like
device. It might have been a genuine iPod, or it might have been
some other similar thing, I didn't look that closely at it. Anyway,
I didn't have time to do much more than log her into my main
laptop, running Linux Mint, and tell her to see what they could
find and/or figure out."
