LXer: 7 open source terminal games for Linux

Thursday 23rd of June 2016 12:30:23 PM
Do fancy graphics really make a game better? Can a text-based game for Linux still keep you entertained?Don't get me wrong, I do occasionally enjoy playing a AAA game release from a major studio. But as I've gotten older, I've found that I really value gameplay (and nostalgia too, admittedly) far more than how photorealistic my gaming experience more

TuxMachines: Huawei taps ex-Nokia devs for 'secret phone OS project'

Thursday 23rd of June 2016 09:24:31 AM

Just when you thought the platform wars had settled down into a cosy duopoly, Huawei is reported to be working on “an alternative mobile operating system”, according to reports.

“The team working on the project is based in Scandinavia and includes ex-Nokia employees,” The Information scooped.

The secret project is said to be in its infancy, and is intended as a hedge against Google further tightening its grip on Android.

Google is reportedly working on a proprietary binary Android, analyst Richard Windsor told The Register, allowing it to take tighter control of the platform.

Reddit: Switch to Linux? Looking for iMac replacement.

Thursday 23rd of June 2016 08:27:10 AM

I am a Mac user since over 20 years but I don't see me fit in Apples target audience anymore for several reasons.
My iMac died lately and now I am deciding to buy a new one or do a switch to Linux.

Everytime I am looking for advice what computer to buy I hear: "build your own, it's cheaper". I would be able to jam one together but I don't have the time or skills to do it in a professional clean way.

What are the high quality options for a Linux Desktop computer? I never bought anything other than Apple, so I have no idea what solid brands exist in the Linux world. I would like to have something like an iMac, but buying one to install Linux feels weird.


  • should be near to silent
  • should be maintainable (swap HDs and such)
  • should be 100% supported by Linux (Sleep mode, fan control, wlan, etc)
  • should be fast (quad core-ish)
  • graphic is not very important (no gamer)
  • should look like build for grown-ups (no neon alien heads)

Any thoughts?
