Open source programming languages for kids

Posted by: DylanMcCall on December 19, 2008 05:08 PM
Having this kind of software packaged / officially supported in a distro like Ubuntu and Fedora would really be great. At the moment, aspiring programmers often learn through sources that favour proprietary software and closed development methods. If a free software operating system (a Linux distro) could encourage those people itself with an awesome environment like Scratch, things could get pretty amazing for our little ecosystem :)
