Random review:
“While I spent time playing with Tux over the last few days, in addition to the time I have previously spent using this software in classrooms, I am never disappointed by what is has to offer. A child can make a simple picture, or use the special features more in depth to create detailed and real life technology based paintings.” — Jamie Krinsky's Blog, November 2011

Copy them to your hard drive's Applications folder. The other contains an application that installs the optional 'stamps' collection.

Compatibility note: The current version of Tux Paint requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or later. If you're using Mac OS X 10.3, you can download Tux Paint version 0.9.20 (from June 2008). If you're using Mac OS X 10.2.8, you can download Tux Paint version 0.9.14 (from October 2005). Download older versions from the Tux Paint file release archive at SourceForge.net.
