best linux distro for kids aged 35
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2005
Hey there everyone-
I'm thinking about putting linux on some old machines to be used by a couple of kids about 4-5 years old. I use Slackware so I can always put that on and set it up manually, but I was wondering if there was any young kids-specific distro, that has an easy DE/WM, all the games and educational stuff installed, easy to use widgets/backgrounds/panels/icons etc. Something that is tailor-made, I guess.
I've googled around a bit but have not found anything specific. I've looked through the distros at distrowatch, and there are several that are education-based, but they are more geared towards running linux in the school and seem focused more on older kids.
Anything out there?

I am interested to get a controller to use for XBMC and also to use for some games (possibly for games from recent Bundle, like Bastion and Limbo).

This probably will be a very annoying question for some users, but frankly I don't care.
What is the best for linux; I know windows is ideal but if you mention it I will pulverize you!
I understand that gaming is a shaky subject for ubuntu but bear with me; Oh and mods this isn't a topic for wine as I'm not talking about ubuntu I'm talking about linux/unix os's in general.

gaming on linux which distro will fit my needs best?

I am going to setup a linux box for playing a few games on, neverwinter nights, ut2004 and quake wars. This box will also act as a server besides me playing on it at the same time, eventually the server will be seperate. I narrowed down my choices in distributions to opensuse 10.3, fedora 8, and slackware. I realize slackware is fast but i don't wanna spend all day setting up things that just work out of the box like fedora, then again how much faster is slackware then the other 2? Is it worth the time? Which one of these distros would work best in this situation? Also KDE or Gnome, i like KDE more but i've been reading things online about gnome being alot faster then kde, will this make a difference for gaming?

Best Games for Slackware or GNU/Linux ??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2009
First, I'm not a gamer but do have Grand children who game therefore I have games on systems. But of course those games are on M$. I would like to introduce some GNU/Linux games to children in the 6 to 16 age bracket.
I have compiled a '3D Top List' for Games in 'Slackware-Links' but that's just garnished links. What games do you find your kids playing on Linux based machines? Or should I phrase it to say 'What do you kids play on your Slackware machines'?
I have Play Stations but the kids always seem to drift back to the PC.
'I' use Slackware exclusively for my base OS so any SlackBuilds recommendation would be a good start. I have clients that use M$ therefore the PC that the kids use is a dual boot system so that won't be a problem. I just don't want to install something for the kids that will just stale or stagnate.
I'm so tired of spending $$ for things that the kids use when they visit and then find out it's something they really don't like or use. GameSpot
