Forget it.  Kids are not relevant with regard to "intuitive" and "user
friendly" and "simplicity".  Kids are the kind of freaks that learn to
speak a brutally complex language without accent in few years.

They are a sponge.  Linux could be a piece of wildly incoherent
illogical crock (actually, pretty much all natural languages would
qualify in that area), and they'd learn it just fine.

They also have no qualms just working on limited knowledge.

If you fear switching to Linux because you'd have no support, throw it
at your kids, whatever age, right now.  Hooking an eight year old will
solve all your computer problems once he turns 12.  Hooking a 12 year
old will solve your problems once he is 13.  Hooking a 14 year old
will have the state attorney at your door before he turns 15.
