Open Source Gaming Review: Assault Cube 0.92

Filed under
Gaming

Assault Cube is an open source 3d shooter done in the old school deathmatch style of gameplay, but with much newer graphics. Gameplay is especially good in this game due to the way it's implemented. Unlike the original Cube and Cube 2 on which it's built, Action Cube provides you with a much better and fuller gaming experience. I've found that it runs much smoother, has zero lag, and the gameplay is quite a bit more fun and challenging. It's like mixing what made the old school FPS games fun with a lot of what makes modern games, little counterstrike, fun as well.

The game opens with a small and simple map to allow you to get a feel for your environment, then with a few simple keystrokes you can begin either a single player game against bots, or an online multiplayer game against humans, whichever you feel is smarter.

Linux evolution

We’re picking our best Linux distributions for 2014. It’s always an odd task and this year we’ve decided to take the chance to delve into the genus behind the distros that we use every day. We’ve been inspired by the GNU/Linux Distribution Timeline at http://futurist.se/gldt which we’ve mentioned before, and decided that we’d explore why the major families in the GNU/Linux world sprang up and how they’ve evolved over the years.

Open source more about process than licensing

It is a testament to the success of the Open Source Initiative's (OSI) branding campaign for open source software that "open source" and "licensing" are functionally synonymous. To the extent that people are familiar with open source software, it is the source code released under a license that lets anyone see the "crown jewels" of a software program as opposed to an opaque binary, or black box that hides its underpinnings.

Eight Key Open-Source Internet of Things Projects

Open source is key to the development of the Internet of things (IoT). Therefore, the Eclipse Foundation is taking a hard look at IoT for Java developers. In fact, the Eclipse IoT community is making it easier for Java developers to connect and manage devices in an IoT solution by delivering at JavaOne 2014 an open IoT stack for Java developers. Based on open source and open standards, the Eclipse Open IoT Stack for Java simplifies IoT development by enabling Java developers to reuse a core set of frameworks and services in their IoT solutions. In addition to the core Open IoT Stack, a set of industrial frameworks are available to accelerate the process of creating home automation and SCADA factory automation solutions. "Our goal with this is to ensure that Java developers have a free and open-source platform for building IoT solutions," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of Eclipse. Read more
