My 10 year old has his own PC now. It's an older P4 with Windows 98, but I removed all links to IE on that box and the only browser that revs up is Firefox 0.9.2

The machine got the usual treatment to Adaware, Spybot with Teatimer and a few Windows updates. Free AVG is loaded, file sharing disabled and a big whopper of a HOSTS file to black out many sites. Hint, look up HPGURUS HOSTS file.

So far, adoption of Firefox looks good with ports of Flash and other plugins working well.

And for the Office Suite, he got Open Office.

Such things as book reports, posters...

He's used it for over a year now.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
