Doudou is a French Debian based distro for kids 2-12 years old and a quite popular actually. Few days ago they released version 1.2 and I thought to have a quick look at it.
I’ll be totally honest. Doudou looks very promising and is really useful distro, but.. but it suffers from old school Linux developing attitude. What’s that? It’s handy made.
Developers just packed lots of software in a poor environment and the only modern thing here is the GComprisplatform. They say that target up to 12 years old kids. Oh well, my opinion, do not gift this to a 12 years old kid, he will hate you. You better buy him a barbie
There aren’t many things to review in such distro. We don’t care about versions, kernels etc. What we care is about translations and the software that features. If you are interested after what you’ll see next, you better check for those on Doudou’s official page.
 The loading screen.
 After loading there is an option to choose session!?! I wasn’t even curious to try this
 The first menu after loading
 Inside on discovering the mouse. Nice apps for kids to learn how to interact with software.
 The GCompris App
 And one of GCompris games. Which isn’t so bad
