  • Infinity Runner Released For Linux Plus Our Thoughts

    Infinity Runner is a great looking first person action game that involves a lot of running. We give it a try to see how it performs.

    I am an absolute sucker for space sci-fi themed games, and just had to give this one a try to report back to you on.

Hopefully, the second iteration will be much better.

Current surveys estimate its share to be a mere 2%; contrast that with the various strains (no pun intended) of Windows which total nearly 90% of the desktop market. For Linux to challenge Microsoft's monopoly on the desktop, there needs to be a simple way of learning about this different operating system. And it would be naive to believe a typical Windows user is going to buy a second machine, tinker with partitioning a hard disk to set up a multi-boot system, or just jump ship to Linux without an easy way back.
