At my home in Kerala
, where my parents live, I use an Ubuntu
desktop. My parents have been eager to pick up some computer lessons for long. Last week, while I was at home, they managed to learn quite a few things on using a Computer desktop that includes, but not limited to using an E-mail client
, an Internet browser
and to some extent an Office Suite
as well. One of those things that my father found frustrating was to get used to the Computer keyboard layout. I remember facing the same problem, when I started my career in Computers. With the help of a typing tutorial software that I found then, my typing speed increased to an impressive rate. Thanks to my father's favourite website
, my search to get hold of one such typing tutorial in Ubuntu, fetched me a rather quick result. Tux Typing
, which is also a part of Ubuntu repository
offers some cool tutorials to help a novice get used to the Computer keyboard layout. Needless to say, my father seems quite motivated by his progress.
Let me also mention here that with the rather uncomplicated and clean User Interface in Ubuntu, the learning curve
looks quite smooth. Ask my parents.
