Any thoughts about using the cute animated Tux modified cursor theme by default?

Funny cursors and icons... You can really learn from Picaros, maybe copy their theme as an alternative, I hate it but kids may love it .. look here ;):

Whoa minino (PicarOS) is huge! :eek: 3.7GB. It must be jam packed with 'goodies'. :happy: I found a skinnier version to download. I'm guessing these would run better and smaller on an antiX base than they do on Ubuntu.

@manyroads: last time I checked, picaros used Debian stable, not Ubuntu, also they have mixed repos Jessie, Woody, compiled from source, etc, 3rd parties .. it's not upgradable usually without being broken due to this, they don't recommend it... The amount of apps is amazing, some of them are too ... Which kid needs Wireshark, wine, playonlinux, Simple server out of the box ...they have

By the way Minino (Picaros is based on) claims to run on everything has a couple, like 10-15 years old, it is fast even though it is huge... I see many parallels to antiX, just the weird repo mix I hate, and yes, they should have tried antiX, then they wouldn't need to mix the repos this way, at least could use our testing repo;)

@aledie You are right about the distro base. I gave up on the "SanDiego" download (3.7GB) and now have (Quelles)- much smaller. The test is on...

@manyroads: If you want to download Children's version, you must download Picaros Diego 2017 (Children version), and not Quelles or Atabros (normal Minino versions, one older one newer). Picaros Diego is so heavy due to the kids soft, they have among others KDEedu apps...

Read the discription for each:
