Three typing tutors and a boy

Hi,

I've been the maintainer for Tux Typing (and also Tux Math) for about the last two years. It is aimed at a younger audience than something like KTouch, which is a more conventional program. Tux Typing is supposed to be a humorous, video game-style introduction to typing for those who are just learning the keyboard. The program is gradually becoming more feature-ful, but still has a lot of rough edges. It doesn't surprise me that a 12 year-old would prefer something less cartoonish than Tux Typing.

Anyway, thanks for the exposure. fwiw, the official website for Tux Typing and Tux Math is:
