Review: Supreme Super Gamer LiveDVD

Filed under

Gaming

For the first time ever, Super Gamer has released a full sized dual layer dvd version of their much loved Linux gaming distro. So instead of just 4.7 gigs worth of games, you get the full 8.5gb of gaming madness! But despite this new bonus feature, is Supreme Super Gamer worth having? Let's see.

Supreme Super Gamer is built on XFCE 4.4.1, Xorg 7.4, Kernel 2.6.30 and, interestingly enough, 3 different FOSS licenses. Namely the BSDL, LGPL, and GPL. Another advantage of the design of Supreme Super Gamer is the fact that it's also a fully working Slackware based desktop OS as well. So if you want to install this distribution to your hard drive, you can. You can even install this to a usb pen drive, although you'll need an appropriately sized drive or flash card (10gb or larger. 8gb is just a hair too small).

As for the list of applications included, it's got a pretty standard compliment of programs, including K3b, Gimp, Mplayer, Xine, XMMS (so you can jam to your tunes while gaming), Limewire (yes, you can pirate too while gaming. Although you wouldn't really do that, now would you? ), Xchat, Firefox, Open Office (yes, OO is here too!) and many more.

It's also got good wireless support (saw my Atheros card immediately and got it working without any fuss at all!), and has some pretty darned good response speed for a LiveDVD. Of course, by now you're likely chomping at the bit asking, "So what about the games?"

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
