I understand the machine is for your grandchild.
If it's any consolation, my daughter has been using Linux since
age 3 (first RedHat based K12linux, and now Edubuntu).
She is now 8.  She uses e-mail and chat (all supervised, and only
chats with her cousins and e-mails family members), does research
and writes school projects, has her own digital camera, etc.
Also, when I was teaching public school a few years back, I placed
machines running RH based K12linux in my classroom, and students got
on and did research, made presentations and projects, etc., without
any difficulty whatsoever.
