Random review:
“I don't usually talk about or recommend software or IT things, but I would make this exception for the great drawing and painting programme for children (and the young at heart!) - Tuxpaint. Since I installed it on our ageing home iMac, my son Jacob has been really enjoying it” — Mark Lawrence, September 2006

The New Inidan Express, May 26, 2008 issue

Tux Paint was chosen as "software of the week" in the "Tasty Bytes" education section of the May 26 issue of "The New Indian Express" newspaper, from southern India.

Unlike adults, children are not afraid to draw and paint.

They love doodling and mixing paints, and it is a creative activity that can keep them occupied for hours.

Now there is a free tool to develop their artistic talents - Tux Paint.

Software of the week Tux Paint is a free, open source, drawing and painting application specially designed for children. Tux Paint has a fantastic list of features that will encourage children to experiment, such as huge variety of colour brushes, pre-built rubber stamps of various types, magic effects, geometric shapes and free hand drawing.

Did you know? Tux Paint is named after Tux the penguin, the mascot of the Linux operating system. "Tux" is short for tuxedo.
