"I took a look around at the options available and became inspired to use Ubuntu and the internet filtering application Dansguardian together to solve this problem. Since Ubuntu 9.10, Dansguardian has had some problems blocking various innocent sites due to a known bug. Ubuntu CE 6.0 beta, which was released today, includes a working version of Dansguardian among other major features.

"Here’s a few major new features of Ubuntu Christian Edition:

"Ubuntu CE is now available in a server edition
Ubuntu CE desktop version available in 32 and 64 bit Changes to the e-Sword installer
Dansguardian gui improvements make internet and filter sharing easier
The look and behavior of this distro differs from Ubuntu very little which in this case was an advantage.

"Users with basic family computers already running Ubuntu won’t miss a beat while switching to Ubuntu CE for the parental controls or other family friendly features. I noted only slight changes here and there on the Ubuntu CE desktop and during startup."
