Kids who run Linux Shells

John Goerzen ist ein Coder aus Kansas und er hat mit seinem (damals) 3jährigen Sohn einen Computer gebaut und ihm beigebracht, Linux per Kommandozeile zu bedienen. Auf seinem Blog erzählt er regelmäßig über die Fortschritte und das ist ganz fantastisch-herzerwärmende Übernerdery. Ich empfehle dringend, alle Postings in seiner Children & Computing durchzulesen, is' wie Assemblercode mit Herz, oder so ähnlich.

Two years ago, Jacob (then 3) and I built his first computer together. I installed Debian on it, but never put a GUI on the thing. It’s command-line, and has provided lots of enjoyment off and on over the last couple of years. […] The looks of shock I get from people when I explain, as if it’s perfectly natural, that my child has been able to log in by himself to a Linux shell since age 3, are amusing and astounding. Especially considering that it is really not that hard. Instead of learning how to run an Xbox, he’s learned how to run bash. I like that. […]

At bedtime, Jacob asked me, very seriously: “Dad, how do I start tuxpaint again?” “First you log in and type startx. Then you can use the mouse.” Jacob nods, a contemplative look on his face.. “Then,” I continue, “you type tuxpaint in the terminal, and it comes right up.”

Jacob nodded very seriously a second time, as if committing this very important information to long-term memory. Then gave a single excited clap, yelled “Great!”, and dashed off.

I introduced my 5-year-old and 2-year-old to startx and xmonad. They’re DELIGHTED! (via MeFi)
