  • 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.

    Sadly though, the game itself really isn't all that interesting and if you have played simple Android games like Temple Run it's very much the same type of game. You are always running, and you don't control the running aspect at all.

  • X-Plane 10 Global 64bit Now On Steam For Linux

    X-Plane 10 Global 64bit is now on Steam for Linux and promises a rather expensive flight simulator experience. By expensive we mean £44.99, so dig deep if you want to try it folks.

  • Torchlight II to Get a Linux Version Soon on Steam

    Torchlight II, an action hack-and-slash title developed and published by Runic Games on Steam, might get a Linux version soon.

    The developers from Runic Games are not at their first try to port one of their games. The first title in the series was promoted on Linux with the help of a Humble Bundle collection, but the game manifested some very problematic technical issues that persisted for a long time, like the missing face of the main characters. Hopefully, the second iteration will be much better.

  • Open education: How students save money by creating open textbooks
    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
