Conference and Workshop
Friday 7th - Sunday 9th November
Desktop Adapted for Dad
The ideas in this article came from my project to give my retired father a computer running Debian Sarge and KDE. All the ideas can be transposed to any modern Linux/Unix distribution, and most of these ideas should work with any desktop system.
My father is in his late 60s, and has never used a computer before, though he has seen others use them. There are a lot of people that now fall into this so called silver surfer category. Like most people his age, his eyesight is less than perfect and he wears bi-focals. He has never used a mouse or keyboard, and his co-ordination is significantly less than that of an experience hacker.
Three years on, I plan to expand on my and my father's experiences.
