SuperGamer - Dedicated live Linux gaming DVD - BOOM!

Gaming

Linux games, hmm. Well, after reading ten compilations and a handful of single game reviews, you are by now convinced that Linux gaming is alive and kicking. And growing. Not bad. Hey, even obtaining Linux games is a fairly easy deal. So far so good.

Nevertheless, in order to play games on Linux, or demonstrate Linux gaming to friends, you will need a machine running some kind of a Linux distro, install drivers for your graphics card and download a handful of games. However, there's an easier way. What if I tell you that there's a live Linux DVD edition, with drivers for your graphics card and preloaded with dozens of games, just waiting for you. Place the DVD in the tray, boot the system and start playing. Sounds good. Name of the game: SuperGamer.

SuperGamer, what it be?

SuperGamer is a special edition of Vector Linux, tailored for massive game demonstrations. While it is a fully fledged Linux distribution, the whole purpose of it is to allow just about anyone to sample the most popular games available on Linux with minimal fuss.

  • Calamares 3.0 Universal Linux Installer Released, Drops Support for KPMcore 2
    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0. Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
