To be fair, *you* are talking about "how to teach children to write
programs." The OP specifically asked about how to obtain a Debian blend
with a specific set of features/capabilities. The mention of his
instructional approach was incidental to the actual question. You
decided it would be more helpful to criticize his proposed instructional
approach. I wonder if the OP feels that your comments have been helpful.
