Reddit: Linux Distros & Video Game Compatibility

Wednesday 5th of April 2017 12:51:16 PM

Hi /r/linux!

A quick questions about video game compatibility with Linux. When a game says that it is able to run on the Linux OS, does it mean only on a specific distro (i.e. Ubuntu) of Linux?

I ask because I was browsing through GOG and saw that a game had Linux support but mentioned versions of Ubuntu only.

LXer: Why you should become an open source sustainer

Wednesday 5th of April 2017 11:09:41 AM
The year was 1999. My father had just built me a computer with a 500MHz AMD Athlon processor, a 2GB HDD, 32MB of RAM and Windows 98. I was in heaven. Then, a friend of mine wanted to introduce me to Linux and asked if he could partition my hard drive in half so he could install Debian 2.1 (Slink). I told him, "Why not?" and while it was installing I asked how much he paid for it. He chuckled and said, "It's Linux, man. It's free!"I figured it was bootlegged and left it at that.read more

TuxMachines: Why you should become an open source sustainer

Wednesday 5th of April 2017 09:21:37 AM

Sustainers educate the public through blog posts, talks, and social media about the digital infrastructure that they use every day and for the most part, take for granted. They convince the companies that they work for to donate money, infrastructure, developer time, and source code to the community at large. They also reach out to companies they don't work for and evangelize about the benefits of helping open source projects live and grow. They don't give up until they have a solution.
