Hello Glenn

My daughter is in grade 11 and has been using Linux as a desktop for about
6+ years now (first on Mandriva, then now on Kubuntu).

She is familiar with Open Office as she has been using that for years for
school work.

She does not know the command line, but willing to learn it. I had some
success with her older sister (now in university) with some online self
study courses in learning shell stuff, so we can use those with Sarah too.

We are in Waterloo though, and it is like a 25 minute commute. She will get
her license in April.

Please forgive me for the next question as a parent: Will there be other
people working in the office on those hours?
