In this week wrap-up, we reviewed Qimo – the Linux distro for kids. If you have kids at home, do not miss out this excellent distro. We also covered how you can use Conky Wizard to easily configure Conky (we all know how difficult it can be to get it working right?) and how you can jailbreak your iPhone 3G to iOS 4.0.2 and upload photos to Facebook from Ubuntu.
