Try OLPC Operating System at Home

Thanks to the magic of VMWare and Parallels you can try the new OLPC operating system without actually having to be a child in a Third World country. All you have to do is download a pre-configured image, change certain settings and you're set to go. Aside from being able to see what kids in Nigeria saw when they first started their odyssey people can also develop OLPC-specific software and web apps for the upcoming market.

i thought xp, but i guese that would be expensive coz xp needs to me maintained and they will get error message eventualy, better to use a simple OS, not saying XP is too complicated for them to use but just harder to maintain

It's a cut down version of either Red Hat or Fedora, iirc. Don't quote me tho.
