Do you know KNetWalk?

Filed under
KDE
Gaming

You think that you know every game that KDE ships? How about KNetWalk? It's a nice little game - not just for system administrators. The chance that you have it already installed is high, it's in the kdegames module!

It entered SVN in May 2005, received bug fixes, got ported to KDE 4. But only the upcoming KDE 3.5.6 release will fix the biggest bug: the non-appearance of KNetWalk in the K menu. Have a nice play...

Seen Here.

The object of the game seems to be to connect all the terminals to the server in the least amount of clicks as possible. It's fairly fun for the few minutes I played it. It's pretty cute. The terminals light up once they become connected. It might not occupy the intellect of some, but for those klickety or ktron fans, it offers the same time-wasting benefits with a bit of strategic challenge and fun. I admit, Beineri's blog was the first I've heard of it. But sure enough, it's in the new KDE 3.5.6 menu. I might have noticed it eventually. Big Grin For those of you running older versions of KDE, you can probably just type knetwalk into the konsole or 'Run Command' dialog box.

Game On!

Huawei CEO: Will keep using Android as long as it's open

He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers. Interestingly, he didn't say anything about whether or not Huawei is developing an in-house mobile OS - said to be called Kirin OS. His silence on the matter, though, can be taken as a confirmation of sorts, especially when his comment reflects the possibility of Google restricting the companies’ freedom with Android in future.
