I'm working for childcare, but as an audio and video engineer, as I did
in the past. This could be the beginning to free people by getting
knowledge, unfortunately just by little and little. :)

One of the social pedagogues did switch from an Windows app to TuxPaint,
but for the Windows version, when I recommended Tuxpaint.

Btw. I very often guess that I need to use the Google search engine,
because Scroogle, Ixquick and similar don't give the needed hits :(. Of
cause there are Ghostery and CustomizedGoogle, but they need Firefox.
