That all fine and dandy, I suppose, but it leaves me wondering what's so unchristian about regular linux. Sure UCE does have an online bible, a bible dictionary and a bible study program, but you can get those to install on any old Linux distribution, for free. So, I read further and here's what the difference is.
Ubuntu Christian Edition also includes fully integrated web content parental controls powered by Dansguardian. A graphical tool to adjust the filter settings has also been developed specifically for Ubuntu Christian Edition. These features are truly what sets Ubuntu Christian Edition apart.It appears that for linux to be "christian" it needs to be crippled and to have the capability of censoring information.
It seems to me that many fundamentalist christians are afraid of knowledge. Instead of teaching their children how to process that bad stuff, they just hide it. I was raised under that philosophy and I grew up to be a very naive and gullable young man. It took me years to learn the critical thinking skills that should have been taught to me when I was much younger. I'm not even sure that I have recovered completely 20 years later. I can understand blocking pornography (maybe). However, I know for a fact that many users of this OS are going to use it to block lots of stuff besides porn.
Man, I'm tempted to install this on the other machine. Maybe, I'll write a review of it and post methods of disabling the parental controls. I am curious to see what the default sites to block are with the parental controls.
