Canonical Sold Super Meat Boy Without Telling the Developer

Filed under
Ubuntu

Edmund McMillen, the developer of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, has shared some interesting information about Canonical’s practices, at least for his games.

“Last year Ubuntu added Super Meat Boy to their store without our written permission and sold it for a full year without paying us. We didn’t find this out till a few months ago and had to contact them directly about it in order to get our payment.... I don’t trust or respect their actions and won’t be working with them ever again,” stated McMillen.

Karma

With a name like "Super Meat Boy", they deserve to be screwed over.

A Short MATE Desktop 1.17 Review in February 2017

MATE 1.17 is a testing release, it has no official announcement like 1.16 stable release (odd = unstable, even = stable). But what made me interested is because Ubuntu MATE 17.04 includes it by default so I write this short review. The most fundamental news is about MATE Desktop is now completely ported to GTK+3 leaving behind GTK+2. You may be interested seeing few changes and I have tried Ubuntu MATE 17.04 Alpha 2 to review MATE 1.17 below. Enjoy MATE 1.17! Read more Also: What's up with the hate towards Freedesktop?
