All gnashing of teeth and tearing of clothes aside, I'm interested in what people do with the source code, a year or two down the line.

The basic idea of the game seems pretty interesting.

Disclaimer: I have not funded this game at any point.

If I read correctly, they don't get all the source code, of course the gfx assets will not be included and I think part of the core of the game is not included, only the Lua source code is released which means people can change certain things that are scripted but not the core of the game... if I am correct on this.

1. Opera Sings for Linux Users Sep 22, 2014, 10:04 Xil
 
Not sure what this guy been smoking but its like he is mixing Opera 12 en and the developer version of 24 with each other.

24 only comes is .deb format so leaves out fedore/suse/etc, found a few scripts but none work 100% so far.
12 had the integrated email client, they dropped it after that.

maybe I got it wrong but think the article it just completely wrong.

speaking of racing movies, Need of Speed was actually a pretty decent flick. was very good in terms of a video game based movie also.

you need to put a /sarcasm tag there.... I hope that was sarcasm ... wasn't it ?

Ok, the guy was an obvious dick but 3 years form what amounts to the theft of a $5 DVD? Universal lost 5 million bucks? And how did they do that exactly? So that's what they're really charging this guy with and they have no way to prove it whatsoever. Now that's scary. At most the guy should be treated like any other shoplifter, which is to say a slap on the wrist because this sort of shit ends up costing the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of a company that doesn't pay taxes to begin with.

the story is not really telling the whole thing from what I read over here in dutch media. He continued distributing even one he was invited for the trail (sorry not sure how you say that in english) and sold link to the movies via facebook. The fact his partner in crime only got a light sentence also shows there was more to this.

None the less, 3 years is crazy, but then if you read http://torrentfreak.com/ and see what the movies lobby has for power all over the world its scary, they can get judges to take down websites even if they are not located in the US at all and even without first contacting the owner, take over their google dashboards etc. etc. somehow they gotten it so far that down/up loading a movie is a bigger crime then a hit and run.

When Linux becomes as easy as Windows and games run the same way under it then people will adopt. Otherwise it'll always be a pipe dream.

Cutter, not sure if you used it lately or not, but if for example you take the opensuse 13.1 then for normal use it is, no need for drivers as 99% is in the kernel. Heck even put it on mums (76) laptop and she's fine with it for last 3 years. So for normal user I feel its easy, but well before people actually try it

Game its nother thing, I agree

Something like 1.5% of Steam users use Linux, according to statistics I saw recently.

I am one of those 1,5%, although since not ubuntu I am one of the 0.x% which they don't split out

If I where still young with loads of time I don't think it would keep me happy but as I am older the few games I do play run fine and to be honest I don't mind tinkering a bit to get it working in wine.

For all other purposes my linux desktop (KDE) is just fine, thunderbird for the mail, firefox/chrome for the web, amarok for the music (beats many windows players tbh), digicam for the pictures and libre office is more then enough for the little excel/word I do at home.

I don't think it will become bigger then Mac as a gaming platform to be honest

can't wait for the linux port on DoS Reviews are all quite positivie yet many don't really give it the high numbers which I find odd. Maybe not enough PR done by Larian Studios ?

Aww, poor Google. Life just must be so tough and unfair.

They can never do this right, person X wants something to be forgotten but turns out he is a politician and what he wants to have removed/forgotten is actually how he got caught doing something wrong..... which because he is a politician is actually good for the public to know.

I bet 99% of those 70.000 requests is stuff like that.
