Dear Kylie

thanks for that very informative
I wonder and it could be a lot of trouble if  maybe you came up with 4 
1 As is for a family with children all ages
2 One focused at families with Teenagers
3 Adult couples who want the net and Openoffice
4 Hi tech users

I personally found  too many games but then we are a couple

I suppose suggestions could come in on what people think is the
most reliabel and useful programs and find out what isn't even being used
Dial Up
desk top
Multi Media
I like Mozilla and Open Office ppconfig Icewm
I hated Tux Paint

that sort of thing

this is only a suggestion
