[News] Review of GNU/Linux Game Galcon Fusion, Linux Phones Run Quake III

Galcon Fusion – Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I was late to write news about Galcon 
| Fusion release so I’ve decided to write a 
| review…
| When Galcon Fusion was released for 
| GNU/Linux I thought it was another of those 
| simple games that I will play for 10 
| minutes and lose interest very quickly – 
| but I was so wrong…
| This is one of the most addictive games I 
| have ever played !
| After 10 minutes of playing I just had to 
| buy it (and it’s very cheap, just $8.99 
| this week, original price $9.99).


The Quake III Test

,----[ Quote ]
| So my test is Quake III. If I'm talking to 
| someone and trying to make the point that 
| they've got a computer, I'll point out that if 
| you can run Quake III on the device, it must 
| qualify as a computer. Not just that specific 
| device, or the specific game, but all devices 
| in that class.
| And Quake III has the added bonus of being 
| open source. So it's a great study in what's 
| possible as long as devices are open and allow 
| modification.



Quake 3 Comes To Google's Android Platform

,----[ Quote ]
| Almost exactly one month ago we reported
| that Roderick Colenbrander was working on a
| new open-source project after his once-
| popular NVClock program has since largely
| faded away. Details were scarce on the
| project originally, but we knew it was to do
| with Linux gaming. Today we now know that
| this project is called "Kwaak3" and it's a
| port of Quake 3 to Google's Android
| platform.

[News] Review of Windows Applications on GNU/Linux, Other Killer Applications for GNU/Linux
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Wine, Linux and Multimedia Software (Part 1) ,----[ Quote ] | Installing Ubuntu was easy, with all of my hardware being automatically | detected including my laser printer. I was immediately impressed with how | simple everything is to use. Some of the software that I used under | Windows is also available under Linux. Skype, FireFox, and OpenOffice are | three of my most frequently used applications, and the transition to Linux | for these applications was painless. However, there remained one | significant barrier to becoming productive under Linux. Unfortunately, the | developers of many of my favorite Windows software have decided not to | release a Linux version. Whilst there are Linux alternatives for many of | these applications (some of which, no doubt, are just as good or in fact | even better than what I had been using in the Windows world), this did not | alter the fact that I would need to learn how a large set of new software | worked.
