            This project looks well thought out. I tried out 1.0rc3 of typeingteacher, 1.0rc2 of touchtyper.

            Both had build problems for which I opened bugs reports.

            The program was nice to use, but kept segfaulting (after a minute or so of use each time). Also reported this bug.

            When these problems are fixed, I think it will be a good tool. I plan on having my sons use it even in the current state.
