Give Linux for Christmas...Twice!
One of the really neat Linux projects is One Laptop Per Child. It's an initiative to make a $100.00 laptop computer available to children in third world countries. The neat thing about the project is, the laptop runs Linux.
The laptops are available for sale to folks in the U.S. and Canada until the end of the month. The price is raised a bit, so by buying one for your child, one is donated to a child in a developing nation. It's their "Give One, Get One" program. Visit One Laptop Per child for more details.
If you want your child to have a neat starter Linux computer, you may want to consider the OLPC model. Reviews are here.
You can make it a Linux Christmas for your child and make computing possible for another child somewhere around the world..
