Developed by a Digital Technologies teacher in New Zealand, PConMe© is a discreet, self-contained virtual personal computer that you can program, install apps onto, go online and run command line, just like the real thing. Have fun and learn more about how a computer works without the worry of breaking a real computer! If you stuff up (and that’s part of the fun), just reinstall a fresh PConMe© software image and start again! Awesome.
PConMe© is not like other live installs where you need to reboot or reconfigure the host machine before you begin. It's been specially developed so you don't have to - just plug the USB stick into E: drive and away you go!
Features & Benefits: - Learn about virtual machines and how they work - Learn about open source computer systems - Learn to program without complex installs – Python and Scratch are ready-to-go - Experiment – configure and reconfigure PConMe© to your heart’s content - 1000′s of open source apps available to download - Surf the web using the host computer’s Internet connection
plus much more!
The device features Linux and Ubuntu 10.10 and the architecture also supports unfiltered internet access if available on the host machine. Doesn't work with Mac O/S sorry. But who knows - maybe you can develop your own version?
Ideally suited for ages 12-14yrs.
