  • ‘Rocket League Rumble,’ complete with Mac/Linux support, lands this month

    Last month Psyonix announced the next Rocket League update, and now we have more information, including a release date.

    Set to drop on September 8, Rocket League Rumble will be the same gameplay that fans have grown to love, but with a ton more power-ups.

  • In-Depth with the Rumble Update
  • OpenMW 0.40.0 Released!

    The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.40.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release brings some small new features, but mainly bug fixes and improvements. We’re winding down on implementable features, these are exciting times for OpenMW, even if releases have a little less user-visible changes. The game is basically fully playable, and future releases will bring mostly more fixes and optimizations.

  • Audio Capturing Support Landed This Week In SDL2
  • GOG withdraw their statement about The Witcher 3 never planned for Linux, they have no idea

    Maybe it will one day, maybe it won't. We again are back to officially not knowing what's going on at all.

  • Near Death Review

    The Linux version runs fantastic. It picked up my Xbox controller with no hiccups and it stayed well above sixty frames-per-second for the most part. In fact, in the game’s first patch there’s a Tux object hidden in one of the rooms that you can only find while playing the Linux version (spoiler: it’s in one of the rooms in Science). There’s not much that you can do with it other than pick it up and drop it, but it’s pretty cool we got some love there. Since the game was built with Unity I was expecting to get a fairly moderate amount of crashes — due to Unity not running so well with GNU/Linux — but I actually only got two crashes after trying to resume the game from a game over, and then after that it suddenly stopped. Never gone through a crash since. Props to the guys at Orthogonal!

  • Atom Zombie Smasher is being updated, Linux version to finally come to Steam

    Atom Zombie Smasher came to Linux a long time ago, but the Linux version never did make it to Steam. It is now being updated by Ethan Lee and the Linux version will be put onto Steam.

  • The Curious Expedition to release in full on September 2nd with Linux support

    The Curious Expedition is a roguelike expedition simulation set in the late 19th century, it is soon to leave Early Access and has full Linux support.

    It has been on Linux since the early days, so it's one title that has supported us for quite a while. I have never tried it, but the reviews seem pretty good!

  • Speculation: It's looking like Rocket League may finally arrive on Linux in September

    Rocket League is way overdue, we all know that, but honestly I am fully expecting it to arrive with the patch due in September named the 'Rumble Update'. This update will come with a bunch of stuff including a new game mode.

    I'm speculating of course, so don't take this as solid confirmation of anything. The evidence is starting to come together though and I will be extremely surprised if Linux isn't released with the Rumble update next month.

    Every time Rocket League is updated on SteamDB, the Linux depot is now also updated and this has been true for about two weeks now. This is the single most activity the Linux side of RL has ever seen being pushed into branches on Steam.

10 reasons why CIOs should consider open source software

A recent survey shows 78 percent of companies run part or all of their operations on open source software. Indeed, open source continues to gain market traction as more companies adopt open technology to speed innovation, disrupt industries and improve overall productivity. Those who remain hesitant about adopting open source are in danger of being left behind. Because open source architecture lends itself to more frequent updates, and because of the openness, open source provides the freedom to innovate and mature in the way that enterprises need.

LXLE: A Linux distro to give new life to old hardware

I’ll bet that somewhere, perhaps at home and most likely at work, you’ve got some old hardware lying around. What to do with it? It still works but what’s it running? Windows XP? Vista? Windows 7 Starter or Home Basic? Yep, you’re stuck on some old version of Windows but moving that machine up to a newer version of Windows could be tricky ‘cause one or more of those old graphics cards and printer drivers have probably have fallen out of the update cycle. Even if those subsystems are still available, you’ll still have a problem as the newer OSs' are pretty much guaranteed to suck the life out of old processors with the result that performance and therefore usability will be marginal at best. So, what to do? Before you start looking for a deal on a new machine and an e-waste disposal site, consider moving to Linux and, most specifically, consider migrating to LXLE, the LXDE eXtra Luxury Edition (though some people also claim it stands for Lubuntu Extra Life Extension).

FreeBSD 11.0 Comes Up Short In Ubuntu 16.04 vs. macOS Sierra Benchmarks

Yesterday I published some macOS 10.2 vs. Ubuntu 16.04 LTS benchmarks from a Mac Mini and MacBook Air systems. For those curious if BSDs can outperform macOS Sierra on Apple hardware, I tested the MacBook Air with FreeBSD 11.0 compared to the Linux and macOS results on that Core i5 system. Here are those results. Read more

TDF Releases Fresh Update to LibreOffice 5.2

The Document Foundation today announced the availability of LibreOffice 5.2.2, the second update to the "fresh" 5.2 family. "LibreOffice 5.2.2, targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users, provides a number of fixes over the major release announced in August." These fixes include the usual number of import/export/filter fixes as well as a lot of interface adjustments and a few crashes. One of the more interesting import bugs fixed had first been reported 4 1/2 years ago. In version 3.5.0 when importing RTF files with several tables the formatting isn't retained in all cases. The original reporter said this included column widths and placement. Comments updated the report throughout several versions on various systems. The bug sat for another year before being bumped and eight months later a patch was committed. After further input and more adjustments, Miklos Vajna committed patches for several versions including today's 5.2.2. Read more
