My 10yo son rather likes the Raspberry Pi. To teach him about the
filesystem, the command line, pipes etc I installed cowsay and figlet. A
few demos of the various cowsay animals piped to figlet and... well, he's
off exploring the machine and having a ball. Then he can't wait to show his
friends what can be done with a non-Windows machine.
