    FPS adventure game Gone Home is now available on Steam for Linux with huge 88% price cut that will last for another day.

You're just trying to solve a mystery. Despite the fact that there are no enemies, and you don't get hurt in any way, the game manages to keep the suspense going with ease, and that's mostly due to the script and the gameplay itself.

  • IBM Insists It’s Open to Open Source
    So it’s interesting when a senior IBM exec turns up in a keynote slot. Big Blue’s heritage, at least at the high end, had for years been dominated by proprietary architecture. No longer, said Doug Balog, general manager of IBM Power Systems. The founding of OpenPOWER roughly two years ago, sale of IBM’s x86 business, and the sprint away from the formidable but proprietary Blue Gene (and re-embrace of the battle-tested mainframe) are all part of IBM’s about-face.

That means software developed in the People's House with taxpayer funds will eventually be available to the people. According to the nonpartisan OpenGov Foundation, there will soon be an Open Source Caucus in Congress.
