I'd like to know what you all would recommend as a decent first computer for kids. The kids in question are 10 and 6 with not much knowledge of computers. The 10 year old is needing the computer more for class etc. and the 6 year old is mature enough to learn to use the computer. Because these two have been known to be somewhat destructive, I'd like to get something cheap. I'm hoping they'll learn to care for it so I can later buy something better without worrying about it. I was thinking either an old G4 iMac or mini OR getting an old Dell and installing ubuntu or another distro on it. I really don't want to deal with Windows. Any thoughts? If Linux, which distro would you recommend. There was once an ubuntu for kids, but I didn't think highly of it.
