Linux Have you ever been in situations which made you think "I wish I had Linux running right now", or are you a person who just would like to try Linux quickly? Knoppix Linux might just be your thing!

nothing wrong with being 15, but...

Yes it's cool a 15 year old is interested and motivated enough to write a linux review. Kudos. I hope his interests continue developing, and truly wish him the best.

Having said all that though, one wonders is this the function of OSNews? I come to OSNews for hardcore news and discussion. This review, on its merits was poor - and should not have been posted. I understand the 15 year old needs to be encouraged and feel validated, but this is not the site to do it on IMHO. If his review had been great, then it wouldn't matter how old he is. As happens, if a 21 year old wrote this, we'd come down on him like a ton of bricks for a sub-standard "review" (of what??), but because he's 15 we say "wow, nice to encourage a 15 year old". Keep the quality high, and the focus laser-sharp: hardcore OS news and discussion, no disccounts and no prejudice ONE WAY OR ANOTHER due to age, religion, sex, etc. Strictly tech. Strictly merit. JMHO.
