Childsplay is a collection of education and entertaining games for younger children.

 Childsplay is a suite of programs for younger children. These games are designed to entertain and educate at the same time, while also giving young children familiarity with computers. Childsplay is now part of a larger project, called Schoolsplay, but this is the most mature part of the project.

The games cover memory exercises, utilising numbers, letters, sounds and images, various puzzles that giuve different types of mental excercise and a number of classic arcade type games suitable for children such as Pacman. By comparison with GCompris, the range of games seems a lot more limited, but these are aimed at a narrower age range, many of the GCompris games would be unsitable for Childplay's intended audience. However, both programs are free, in every sense of the word, so there's no reason why you shouldn't install both if you have a younger child.

Now that the project has been enlarged into Schoolsplay, we can hope that future releases will contain a larger range of games.

Verdict:

 A slightly limited choice of games, but a good addition if you have young children.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
