In May 2005, Schoolforge-UK published a 5-star review of Tux Paint.

Excellent configuration features are provided for using in networked school settings and for restricting access to features. The various configuration options can be set via command-line switches, config. files or a GUI as you would expect from a mature program targeted at widespread deployment.

My children use the Windows Port on XP Pro and they both give it the 'thumbs up', often asking to use the 'penguin' (a tendency to be encouraged).

The Tux Paint web site is well organised with clear download and deployment instructions, screen shots, videos, reviews and a community gallery.

Tux Paint is one of those programs that should be 'just be there' on all PCs that children use.
