I would LOVE to have a tablet to play on tux paint with... I mean so my KIDS
can play on tux paint of COURSE lol. I am 29 there is no way you can prove
that I play on Tux paint lol. (Okay okay I LOVE LOVE LOVE tux paint lol. )

But yes I would pay 40 bucks for the tablet... and I think it is an awesome
idea!! And I too would test a prototype LOL.
