  • '7 Days to Die' Linux version on its way: Developer

    7 Days to Die was a Kickstarter project about an open world, voxel-based, sandbox game that is a unique mash up of First Person Shooter, Survival Horror, Tower Defense and Role Playing Games combining combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth. The developer had promised a Linux version of the game during its campaign period, saying that they would release a Linux version 2 months after the initial launch. But even after the game was launched, there were no signs of a Linux version or any communications from the company. Now, after a long hiatus, a developer has said that they are indeed working on a Linux version and it should be ready in a couple of weeks.

Phoronix offers some criticism of KDE software, and this is how KDE deals with it

About a month ago, Eric Griffith posted an article on Phoronix where he compared Fedora’s KDE spin to the main Fedora Workstation which uses GNOME. In that article, Eric described a number of issues that he became fully aware of when comparing his favorite desktop environment, Plasma (and the KDE applications he regularly uses) with GNOME’s counterparts.

And since KDE does listen to user feedback if it makes sense, we decided we should do something about it. Read more
