I've been using pysycache for the last year (with previous versions) with 3 and 4 years old kids, and they learn how to use the right & left button, or doing drag&drop enjoying, learning how to identify the numbers even in foreign languages. I've installed it in primary schools, and it's just a desktop icon for the teacher/student to launch it. Do you imagine using gimp to do such thing in a classroom with 25 children? Everything has a target, and when the child finish the activity and a girl drawing appears saying "You've got it" , he raises his hands happily. I don't think that's gimp's target. Regards José L.
