Tux Paint worked on an iMac DV G3 with 10.3.9, but not on 10.4.11 on the same machine. The app crashes with the following log entry: Link (dyld) error: incompatible cpu-subtype This post may help: http://www.idevapps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6522 Fun little app for my 3+ old daughter. Clever sound effects and good customization ability in Tux Paint Config (which still launches in 10.4.11).

Thank you for this efun and educational program. I go to country villages in Northeastern Thailand twice a year for several weeks to visit my sons and do research. Children of all ages come to visit me and be entertained. I simply open my computer to Tux Paint and SuperTuxKart and let them play for hours. Being available in Thai is also a great benefit. Thanks again.

What's not to like in this program. The grandkids (and me) LOVE it and play on it and THEY spend hours doodling, etc. Nice sounds, nice graphics, nice Macintosh compatibility... thank you. Maybe this company should write educational softwares for children as they do an excellent job.

My twin, five year old grandchildren taught themselves in ten minutes. Then played with it for the rest of the afternoon. Perfect!

Great start but a lot of features are lacking. It doesn't tell you where the files are saved, allow you to name them or open old ones. The stamper only stamps little penguins and the colors are limited.

Very very creative. Lots of fun. My daughter is cracking up right now. :) Lots of palette options is great. Multiple undo's. Great magic tricks and stamps! Sound effects are kewl. I havent played with it too much yet, so here is a wish list: -Larger screen canvas area -Print set-up (glad my photo printer wasnt setup as default) -Save-to folder set up (where is the data?) If this great little app does these things, please let me know how. Developers, thanks for sharing your talent and time!

This program is GREAT! Never saw such an easy to handle and yet functionable paint program with even a nice interface too! Excellent work. Congratulations!

Excellent for young kids, and a good replacement for an old favorite, KidPix.

FYI, the 'crash on Open' bug that got introduced in 0.9.11 was fixed in 0.9.12. Sorry about that! ;^)

Nice kids app but check it for bugs. App quits when you choose to open something. My daughter loves it though.

If you've got kids, don't dowload this, because they'll simply take over your computer. Aimed at kids and very good at this. You can even download more stamps. Very nice.

Since it's Open Source, it's trivial (you don't even need to know how to program) to change the way the interface looks!

My daughter loves the program but it crashes everytime we try to print the drawings.
