    Great initiative. Big positive.
    I wasn’t able to check it right now, so maybe someone is aware what its based on? Gecko? KHTML? IE??

    I really don’t see the use for this. It’s easy to circumvent for anyone eight years or older, unless it’s their first time using a computer.
    It’s just a false sense of security and is on the same level as parking the kids in front of the television and thinking it will turn them into better people.

    It would be better if they introduced the kids to programming or politics if they are interested.

    Also, contrary to popular belief, seeing boobs or a ‘bad word’, like “fuck”, won’t turn kids into prostitutes or drug addicts.

    The best thing is to let them have their own computer and clean up their own mess after downloading “Ultimate cracker 2k” (aka infecting the computer with virus, trojans and its ilk). Just see to it that it’s isolated from all other computers on the network.

    Minimum System Requirements?
    A Windows PC running Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP or Vista and Internet Explorer 5 or greater.

    So most likely it’s yet another shell for IE.

    You don’t see the use for this?  Really?  OK, so you are either not a parent or a really lame one.  It makes me wonder what kind of garbage you would let your own kid look at.  Thanks for donating to the ongoing societal effort to kill off early childhood innocence.  The human race owes you one there pal.  What a schmuck.

      Not to be hard on you, but there is a reply button and while it might be too much of a mental challenge for you there is also more than one sentence in my original comment.
      If you happen to manage to read more than one sentence this time: I would like to point out that the lame parents are the ones who just leave the upbringing of their kids to a simple machine.
