0 A.D. Music Shows There’s More to Open Source Than Code

The open source ecosystem is mostly about code. After all, sharing code is at the core of the open source ethos. But for many Free Software projects, there’s more at stake than code itself, as the development team behind the open source game 0 A.D. made clear recently when it highlighted the contributions of musical composer Omri Lahav–whose work is an important reminder that software success, in many cases, is about more than ones and zeroes.

Lahav is a composer based in Israel with an impressive list of professional accomplishments. These include producing scores for a slew of games, plays, shows and other productions. 0 A.D., meanwhile, is an open source project aiming to create a real-time strategy game that can rival the products of closed source, commercial game developers in every respect. 0 A.D. has been in development for what can seem like an eternally long time, but the team does roll out updates quite regularly. We’ve covered a number of the big ones in the past.

An Everyday Linux User Review Of LXLE

I have been asked on a number of occasions to take a look at LXLE. I downloaded LXLE 14.04.1 a long time ago and for one reason or another it has taken until now to finally sit down and get to grips with it. LXLE stands for Lubuntu Extra Life Extension.
