Debian Jr. System tools

Description

This package includes a few tools for helping children learn about and use their system.

Midnight Commander is more than just a file manager. It is shell with which children can explore and manage their own accounts. It can be a great help for the very young, as it saves them some typing (as compared with using a command-line shell directly). It is also packed with power and flexibility which can be tapped by older children and adults alike.

The 'hello' sample program can be used as an instructional aid, as an example of how to invoke programs from the shell, specify switches, use the man page, and so on.

Baobab, the GNOME disk usage analyzer, enables the user to take a visual trip into the hard drive contents. It can be a mesmerizing first step, dvelving into the inner parts of the computer system. It serves both as an educational tool about file systems and file contents/size as well as a tool for analyzing what files are big if disk space is scarce.

Bubblefishymon is a computer load monitor dockapp which shows network traffic as fishes, CPU usage as bubbles, and a duck representing a duck.
