Random review:
“The kids at our school regularly skip over KidPix 3 and head for Tux Paint. KidPix is just a big mess of fancy nonsense, whereas they can actually create pictures in Tux Paint.” — Mineral Elementary School District

My kids love to play with the computers in the house. At four years old, both my daughters were logging in, playing games, even surfing the Web (barbie.com and cartoonnetwork.com have some great kids games). But they love to be creative and that means painting programs. When I want to see how good a program of this type is, I show my kids and let them go at it. If they're asking for it the next time they log in, I've got a winner. Requires: libSDL, libpthread, libSDL_image, libSDL_ttf, libSDL_mixer, libm, libesd (optional), libdl, libartsc, libX11, libXext, libjpeg, libpng, libz, libtiff, libfreetype, libvorbisfile, libvorbis, libogg, libsmpeg, glibc.
