Somewhere in there they say it's XCFE, I believe.  (Hence Sameer mentioning
Xubuntu.)  I think that'd be a fine UI for kids.  I set up a very basic
KDE kiosk for a coffee shop once, and I think I used a simpler environment
than straight Kwin + Kicker panel + etc. etc.

Frankly, I see that they've got a little Tux Paint icon in the taskbar
on their screenshot, and that's good enough for me to link to them from
the "People who Distribute Tux Paint" section of tuxpaint.org's "Links" page. ;)

Of course, Dell Mini 9 ads with little Tux Paint logos on them are even
better.  Heh.
