Qimo4Kids is a desktop operating system designed for kids.
Based on the open source Ubuntu Linux desktop, Qimo comes pre-installed with educational games for children aged 3 and up.

Qimo's interface has been designed to be intuitive and easy to use, providing large icons for all installed games, so that even the youngest users have no trouble selecting the activity they want.

Qimo 2.0 on the way!
" It's been almost a year since Qimo 1.0 was released, and we're hard at work again on the next version of our friendly Linux desktop for kids. We will be using Ubuntu 10.04 as our foundation this time, so our final release is targetted for the end of April, 2010. But in the mean time, here's a look at what's coming:"

Introducing Illa!

Qimo has a brand new friend, an adorable little polar bear girl named Illa
(pronounced ee-lah, it is Inuit for "friend"). She's also sure to appear in a new set of Tux Paint stamps, so your little ones can create their own arctic artwork featuring our loveable pals.


Qimo Sessions
While we're on the topic of new themes, Qimo 2.0 will not longer limit the theme to the "qimo" user account. Instead a Qimo session will be selectable at the login screen, just like Gnome, KDE and XFCE are today. That means you can create individual accounts for each of your children, or start using the Qimo session with an existing user.

Packages
Finally, we will be making Ubuntu 10.04 compatible packages for all of Qimo, so you will be able to install it on top of an existing setup. This should also allow us to make an alternate install CD this time around, so it will have even lower hardware requirements.

Stay tuned:

Once you have the CD created, just leave it in your CD drive and reboot your computer. When Qimo first boots, it gives you the option to try it from the CD, or install it to your computer. Trying it from the CD means that nothing on your computer will be changed, you can reboot without the CD and everything on your computer will be exactly as it was before. This is the easiest way to try Qimo, though it will run a bit slower this way.
