Linux for Kids

As the proud father of a young child, I'm currently setting up an Ubuntu box tweaked with educational and child friendly entertainment applications. However, I wasnt sure , besides Tuxpaint or KDE-EDU on what exactly is out there for kids on Linux. So I did a bit of googling.

In this article on the setup of Linux for young children the author describes several child friendly applications, such as xjig, xaos and Linux Letters and Numbers

Using Linux with kids - an introduction

Other apps i found:

PAW branch of Xjig
Circus Linux

Found a distro - Debian Junior. No news since 2003 on this however.
