I am new to the PI world. Just got my RPI3B+ the other day to start learning (re-learning) Linux and learn to code with Python. I will probably use Pi's to do some small projects, but mainly got it to refresh myself on using something other than Windows. Mainly want to do this so that I can teach my now 2 year old son how to code. When I was a kid, in the late 70's early 80's, we used to have a Texas Instruments TI99-4A and did quite a bit with BASIC. I would like to get him involved at a young age, so maybe he goes the way I originally was going to, but didn't, and go to school for computer science. If not, no biggy, he'll at least have a little bit more knowledge about how computers work than his buddies.
So far I have "written" a version of the "Hello World" Python program, installed scratch thru the GUI, installed libreoffice from the command line, and connected my network drive so that I could change the wallpaper of the GUI. I have had a problem with getting an openoffice spreadsheet to open from my network drive in libreoffice, but I'll ask about that on a different thread.
