Wargaming Mobilizes with Linux and Open Source

Filed under

Gaming

Online game developer and publisher Wargaming relies on Linux and open source software to produce and distribute its line of popular military strategy games, says Maksim Melnikau, a solution architect at Wargaming.

The growing company joined the Linux Foundation in May as it seeks to advance the gaming industry. And it's off to a great start, having shipped more than 15 titles since 1998, including the armored World of Tanks and World of Warplanes, a free-to-play flight combat game. Wargaming is now expanding to a new mobile platform and continues to hire developers as it opens offices across the globe.

Here, Melnikau discusses how Wargming uses Linux; the company's hardware setup; gaming on Linux; his advice to game developers; and openings at the company.

Debian Forked: All for Devuan and Devuan for All?

It is hard to see the direction Devuan will take, given that the project is still in its early days. The new community could create a shallow derivative, or it could fork the entire Debian archive. Another option is to try replacing Debian entirely and become a new gateway between upstream projects and users of all packages, which would require a lot more manpower and infrastructure. Read more
