   As the guy who should have, I would have to say ignorance. :-)
Sorry...  Looks like a very good project.  I would suggest, however,
that you divide the software by age category.  I would hate to give a 3
year old structured math. :-)
   Also, from the Independence distribution standpoint, we need to
support whatever the user wants.  The fact is that Inde with Wine will
run almost anything the pre-school/school has.  And run it without risk
of breaking the machine.  Handy to know when you pass the bargain bin...
 Any Win3.1 stuff has a very good chance of working properly.  <as
properly as it does in windows anyway>
   But we might want to include some of this stuff in the "Extras" part
of the distrib, along with a money manager, and other stuff.
Babysitting the tikes is common among home uses for a computer. :-)
