Sure, for Linux there’s free games like Frozen Bubble, Tux Racer, FreeCiv etc., but the big commercial titles are rarely released for Linux. The company TransGaming Technologies tries to fill out this need for commercial Windows-games by having created an application which makes it possible to play such games without official Linux-support regardless.
Since our Nouveau: A First Look article last month, new developments continue to come out of the Nouveau camp. Among the changes in the past month is glxgears now working on NVIDIA NV4x hardware, the pledge drive now being completed, and the Fedora Project announcing its intent for including Nouveau in the upcoming Fedora 7 release.
FVWM-Crystal aims to create an easy to use, eye-candy but also powerful desktop environment for Linux or other Unix-like operating systems. I wanted to meet the developer, Maciej Delmanowski, in order to find out more interesting stuff and secrets about his project.
If there is mass take-up of free and open source software in any country over the next few years, that country is likely to be China. On the FOSS front, China is quietly making progress.
This article is a small evaluation of Epiphany web browser and basic comparison with well known Firefox. Epiphany is the web browser for the GNOME desktop. Its goal is to be simple and easy to use.
When Eric Raymond published the first Halloween Memo, "Open Source Software: A (New?) Development Methodology", some wondered if it was authentic. Later, Microsoft sort of confirmed the authenticity in its own style. We need wonder no more.

The PCLinuxOS Magazine Project is pleased to bring you an extra publication for this last week in January that takes a look at PCLinuxOS 2007's first public test release.
Ubuntu and Kubuntu have been two of the largest Linux distributions touting themselves as a “desktop Linux” lately. Today, I installed a different desktop Linux. I installed OpenSUSE on one of my computers. I was bracing myself to have problems with installing OpenSUSE. To my surprise, I didn’t have a single problem.
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL) and Free Standard Group (FSG) merged on Jan. 21, creating the Linux Foundation, a single entity aiming to take responsibility for Linux standardization, promotion, and protection. LinuxDevices.com wasted no time interviewing Jim Zemlin, the new mega-organization's executive director.
I'm not giving up maintainership of Gwenview anymore, in fact it has been decided that Gwenview will move to kdegraphics for KDE4! This is what I call great news! To wet your appetite, here are two mock-ups of what Gwenview 2.0 will probably look like.
It seems the folk over at Ubuntu Software have released an ultimate edition of Ubuntu which is aptly called Ubuntu Ultimate Edition.
Recently I assembled a 64 Bit system thrilled to be able to run Fedora Core in 64 bit mode. After much sweating the machine was done and ready. I had already downloaded the ISOs and was ready to go. I put in the first CD and started the install. But then the bottom dropped out.
When doing documents using general-purpose word-processing software like Microsoft Word or OpenOffice.org Writer, you are capable of doing just about every formatting you’d feel like and add just the type of content you would like, where you like. These editors are fine for most purposes, people tend to format documents, sometimes a lot. Having to even consider how to format a document, is what LyX is all not about!
I’ve known about, written about and even participated in the Ubuntu Studio project (in a limited capacity) in the past. After hanging around in the project’s IRC channel for a bit I got to chat with Ubuntu Studio’s Project Manager! I did get Cory Kontros to take a bit of time with me for a quick interview on the status of this upcoming project.
Develop 3.4 has been released, bringing many new features to KDE's Integrated Development Environment. The first major release in over a year closes more than 500 bugs.

If you haven’t heard yet, there’s a new Ubuntu-oriented project that’s been making waves: install.exe. In short, it’s a way to install Ubuntu onto the same file system as MS Windows without repartitioning your drive. Justifications include minimizing the risk of data loss during repartitioning, a more user-friendly installation process, and eliminating the need of burning a CD to install. However, is there truly a need for an Ubuntu installer for Windows?
One of the advantages of using GPLed software is that anybody who wish to use or modify the code can do so without fear of any repercussions. Ditto for the documentation of the software. This has at times tempted many a book author to release their books under a liberal license and make their efforts available for free in an electronic format.

One of the most common questions asked by newcomers to Linux is "Which is better, KDE or Gnome?" The answer commonly given is, "It depends. Try them both and see which one you like best." It's a reasonable answer, because it costs nothing but time to try them. I'm going to tell you which one is better.
