This is a good approach to teaching. Start with simple questions about how to reach an end goal. From "how do I install the operating system" to "how do I install Minecraft?"

Nice! I know the main reason I got into using computers was so that I could play games. Next step will be for them to start learning how to build simple games :-)

It's great to see parents involvement trying different ways to have kids attention and interest.

Have you worked with a Pinbook for surfing or other?

I thought about getting one back when they announced it. I decided to wait for reviews mainly because I was unsure how good (or bad) the screen and keyboard might be. That and other options are getting ridiculously cheap.

According to its spec, PINEBOOK is similar to a Raspberry Pi 3 and it may be the reason why it can be made so cheaply.

If you ever want to play bash on hard mode, install suicide linux. It sudo rm -rf / 's your machine if you mistype any command.

Well, I guess that's one way to train yourself to be more cautious about what commands you're typing!

desktop apps on a mobile device and not the other way around

Aren't we heading into the realm of apps not being so device centric? ie. Adobe Creative Cloud, Google Apps, Office 365, etc

That is one direction. Personally I want offline access to non-webapps developed with a desktop UI in mind. I dream of having a VM webserver running in my pocket which I can cast to any screen and input devices I want. It would be nice if that were also my phone so I wouldn't have to carry multiple devices. Right now I still need at least two devices for that. I am getting a new GPD Pocket netbook I can carry around with me but I will have to use my phone for calls and internet access. If I could get a 6" phone that does (allthethings) then I wouldn't need two devices. I briefly debated getting the Gemini PDA but that is a bit smaller than I want and is coming from an unknown company with no track record.

Just found out about the command vimtutor. I use vim a lot for work and feel fairly confident in it, but I didn't know some of the stuff that vimtutor goes through. I had a teacher in college tell us to become vim power users all the time. Not sure what versions of linux have this installed, but it worked on amazon linux.
