Well, computer could be used at any age. My daughter  Alice  is
nearly 6 months old and the photo was taken 2 months ago (using
login program ;-) The interest is mainly in keyboard. And  also
screensavers from newest RedHat are amazing. Mouse is too  hard
to use so Windows out of question (even if I had one ;-)

Probably an app which makes different sounds on  hit  of  every
key could be even more interesting at the age of 0.5 years.
