Desura open sourced as Desurium

Filed under
Gaming

Desura game client has been open sourced. Work for open sourcing the client was going on for a long time but the progress was slow as lead developer 'lodle' was on a holiday break.

Just few days back, he got back to work and since then efforts to open source the client got back on track. All the needed work has been done now and after sorting out all the remaining issues, Desura has been open sourced as Desurium just 4 hours back.

Desurium code is available under GPL v3. However, all the art and other assets are still owned by Desura. More details should be available soon.

Peppermint 7 Released

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
