7.8. Children's Software

Thanks to the vast number of Macs in schools, a huge percentage of educational software programs are available in both Mac and Windows versions—often on the same CD. That includes most programs from The Learning Company (including the Arthur, Carmen Sandiego, Little Bear, and Reader Rabbit series), Broderbund (Kid Pix, Mavis Beacon, Print Shop, and so on), Humongous Entertainment (series like Blue's Clues, Dora the Explorer, Putt-Putt, Backyard Sports), and other major educational publishers.


Note:

Some of these programs aren't actually Mac OS X programs. They generally run just fine on current Macs, but they do so in the Classic mode described on Section 4.9.2.2. (They reflect the operating-system situation in the world of education, which is to say, usually a couple of versions out of date.)
