    I have a Niece who is 4 & 1/2 years old ( 5 in January) who like to play on my computer when she
    comes over for a family visit with my sister---
    she is getting tired of games from Nick JR.
    I was watching JayzTwoCents YouTube channel.
    in one of the videos he mentions that since his 5 year old now has a computer
    that he was going to check out Steams' Kid's Library---
    I have looked @ Steam & I can't really find games for her age group on Steam--
    am I looking in the right place ???? U type in Kids & a bunch of first shooters show up.
    GTA V is differently not for a 4 to 5 year old///// the controls are too much for her style game
    plus the ADULT content

    saw the commercials for ABC.Com is it worth the 10 bucks a month ????
    she plays Mario Cart on the WII @ home---
    need suggestions
    James

    Hi,
    Another option to keep your computer safe would be to let her have her own operating system designed for kids her age.
    DouDou linux, more info here: http://www.doudoulinux.org/web/english/index.html
    It's based on Linux and can be run from a USB stick or DVD without installing on your computer. It's free and totally legal.

    Independent review here: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/best-free-operating-system-kids.htm inc "Access to the installed system on which the CD is running is not possible so your resident files and settings are in no danger of being lost, altered or infected."

    Hope that's of interest?

    Richard.

    thanks---
    I'm more trying to find games for her age group----
    she doesn't play the computer by herself yet----
    just finding games she can play is hard----
    that's why I posted--if U just enter """kids games'' into the search box in steam---
    a bunch of games rated ""M"" come up---which are more the kinda games for my age.

    Steam is owned and operated by Valve - a company known largely for their success with what many would argue are adult video games. The majority of the games it hosts are not for children.

    While Steam may have a "kids sections", it's not something I have heard of nor used. I suggest looking for another source of games.
