Reddit: 2100+ Linux games on Steam

Saturday 28th of May 2016 06:32:22 PM

I haven't seen a Steam game count report for a while in here, so I thought I would post one.

The count stands at 2183 at the time of posting.

OSX stands at 3279 Windows stands at 8584

Linux is at 25% of the Windows catalog and 66% of the OSX catalog.

OSX is at 38% of the Windows catalog.

Is it only me or Linux is gaining on the OSX catalog?

TuxMachines: Black Duck's Free Tool Digs Out Open Source Bugs

Saturday 28th of May 2016 06:11:27 PM

The main advantage of such tools is ease of use. The main limitation is that a tool is only as effective as its creators' list of vulnerabilities. Using a given tool implies that you trust the vendor to stay alert and on the job, noted King.

Developers have "a ton of other similar offerings out there," he said. By offering a free scanner, Black Duck can draw attention to its other products.

"If the new tool delivers what the company promises, it will help put the company in good stead with customer developers. Satisfied customers tend to be repeat customers," King said.

Comparing live version upgrade methods

When I review a distribution I always begin by performing a fresh installation of the operating system. This gives the latest version of the project a chance to stand on its own without complications. However, many of us do not perform fresh installations on our operating systems each time we want to upgrade to the latest release. Some of us, in order to preserve settings or installed packages, prefer to upgrade our existing operating system without starting over from scratch. This week I decided to take five open source operating systems through an upgrade process from their penultimate release to their latest version. Read more
