ArmA 3 kicks massive ass!

dedoimedo.com: Just a few days after it was released, I purchased the game, Deluxe Edition, at USD64.99. Even though this is a hefty price, I wanted to support both Bohemia Interactive as well as Steam for their gallant Linux efforts. There are all sorts of glitches and such, but that's not important. What we want is awesome, realistic war. And when it comes to that, no one deliver like the Czechs.

  • Linux Top 3: Fedora 24, Peppermint 7 and Solus 1.2
    Perhaps the biggest release of last week was Fedora 24, the first major milestone release from Red Hat's community Linux platform so far in 2016. On the desktop Fedora 24 including the GNOME 3.20 desktop and now supports the Flatpak application packaging approach. The promise of Flatpack much like Ubuntu's Snappy is a single package that can run across multiple Linux distributions.
  • LinuxQuestions.org Turns Sixteen
    I'm proud to announce that over the weekend LQ turned 16! I’d like to once again thank each and every LQ member for their participation and feedback. While there is always room for improvement, that LQ has remained a friendly and welcoming place for new Linux members despite its size is a testament to the community.
  • The ARM64 Race
    At a recent talk SoftIron gave a talk about ARM64 versus x86 servery, it was emphasized that comparisons are often apples v oranges. Given the right race, ARM64 is competitive today, say, in storage servery. That’s because smaller cores distributed with lots of storage hanging on each is a better match to the workload. Further, ARM64 is becoming competitive in its 1st generation while x86 is on its umpteenth generation. With the large cast of developers and interest from large customers, growth/maturity could come very rapidly.
