Well basicly my li'l sister is bearly 3 years old and already wants a computer.

So, my dilema is what should she start with, a pc/win32, pc/linux or a mac?

From the technical side, i preferr getting her a laptop and put linux on it [easier to bulletproof against an 'rm -rf /'], but she thinks that macs are *cuter*, infact, the other day, she nearly shoplifted a 12" iBook <_<

Well, anyhoo, what's your opinion?

I built my sister a win32 model and its stood her in good stead. This being a celeron 600mhz now. I would prefer she used linux but it doesnt help her when she goes school and thast what they use there.

One day she'll go school and it'll be BSD. ... one day. :)

3 years old?

Man are you kidding? Wait until she is 6-7 and then get her a laptop running the Windows we will have then.

EDIT
Missing "?" in line 3. :P

She likes those kiddie games.. what can i do :(
got tired of her taking my phone all the time to play stuff

and btw, i started with linux, not windows :P
quite a sad story actually, i paid so much for my first pc - that i couldn't afford windows, so i had a friend burn me some redhat cds in exchange for bubble gum..

mt first computer was an atari, but it was for gaming, for a real first computer it was speccy (aka zx spectrum 48kb) after it an commodore amiga 500+ and I stil have those except for atari. ;) I'm stil using amiga os, well I don't have a sister hehehehe, but my brother tought me to use all of those, I was 4 nearly 5 playing with atari n 6 with speccy, but I remember my bro didn't let me to play by myself, becuse I brake everything I touch at that time
