  • Tomb Raiding, Best USB Distros, Debian's Dogguy

    The top story today in Linux news must be the release of Tomb Raider - GamingOnLinux and Phoronix have some benchmarks. The Ubuntu 16.10 release schedule was posted and makeuseof compiled the five best distributions for USB sticks. Sam Varghese posted his interview with Debian's new project lead Mehdi Dogguy and Joe Collins tested Manjaro 15.12 with mixed results.

    The release of Tomb Raider by Feral Interactive on Steam for Linux was shouted up and down the boulevard today. GamingOnLinux shared their thoughts and benchmarks soon after. The only negative Liam Dawe seemed to find was some dipping framerates and sluggish behavior in a few spots saying the performance "is generally quite good." Controls worked well and the scenery was beautiful, according to Dawe. The story was compelling, the main character well developed, and combat exciting. He concluded, "Overall, it’s a fantastic game that really draws you in from the moment you load it up." See his full review for no screenshots! Phoronix posted some NVIDIA benchmarks running Tomb Raider on Linux, indicating I need a new video card.

  • It's Been Four Years Since Revealing Many Early Steam Linux Details

    I just realized this morning it's been four years since I was out at Valve HQ learning the early, exclusive details about their Steam Linux plans (and what would become SteamOS and Steam Machines) from Gabe Newell and their Linux cabal.

    If you weren't a Phoronix reader back then, there's our exclusive (from the time) Valve's Gabe Newell Talks Linux Steam Client, Source Engine article. It's some fun weekend reading or to reminisce!

  • The Other 99, a single-player action and survival game coming soon to Linux

    The Other 99 looks like a pretty good entry to the single-player action & survival section, and it's releasing into Early Access with Linux support soon.

    I generally much prefer the single-player survival games (apart from Don't Starve), as they are able to focus on a much nicer user experience.

    With a lot of survival games now available on Linux, it will have to be pretty good to stand out from the crowd. The teaser trailer certainly has me intrigued.

  • Solar Division, a blend of RTS and Tower Defence in space out now for Linux

    I am a bit of a sucker for space strategy games and Solar Division certainly looks unique enough to give it a mention. It's also not in Early Access, it's a full game, so that's nice.

A Grand Experiment

The latest debacle over the "forced" upgrade to Windows 10 and Apple's increasingly locked-in ecosystem has got me thinking. Do I really need to use a proprietary operating system to get work done? And while I'm at it, do I need to use commercial cloud services to store my data? I've always used Linux since the first time I tried installing Slackware in the mid-90s. In 1998 we were the first national TV show to install Linux live (Red Hat). And I've often advocated Ubuntu to people with older computers. I usually have at least one computer running Linux around, in the past couple of years Dell XPS laptops have been great choices. And a couple of months ago I bought a 17" Oryx laptop from System76, an Ubuntu system integrator, for use in studio. But as time went by, even Ubuntu began to seem too commercial to me, and I've migrated to community supported Debian testing and the Arch-based Antergos distros for everything. (i use Antergos on my Oryx on the shows.) Read more Also: Microsoft lays off remaining handful of Microsoft Press staff
