Recalbox Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming

Filed under
Gaming

I’ll be first to admit that I’ve been putting off setting up a Raspberry Pi for my wife to use for retro gaming. I knew there were a few games she missed but Mario Kart 64 was the big one. I’ll also be first to point out that setting up a RetroPi isn’t difficult with the correct setup guide.

I had my first run-in with the turn-based, Linux strategy game Battle for Wesnoth a few years ago. It was not long after discovering open source software, and I was incredibly impressed that a small group of developers could create such an excellent game for free. Discovering this along with Linux and the numerous GNU packages is what really piqued my interest in the world of open source.

Valve Is Using SteamOS and Linux Icons for the Same Game

Filed under
Gaming

Valve is making some strange choices when it comes to Linux, and it's been using different icons to SteamOS and Linux. It's unclear why they are doing this, but the worst scenario imaginable is that some games will be built for SteamOS and not for generic Linux distros.

However, with the help of companies like Valve, 2K, and Aspyr Media, that’s quickly changing.

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

So basically Bradley Kuhn gave a talk at FOSDEM '17 about GPL enforcement and I was like, wow, it sucks how many companies and people think that enforcing the GPL is a bad idea. I mean, if you disagree with copyleft that's fine (though I personally would argue with that position), but then you should use a suitable license. Like MIT. The very idea that we shouldn't enforce the GPL just doesn't make sense to me because it suggests that the text of the license is watery and unimportant. I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important. It seemed to me that there are probably a lot of developers out there who want to support GPL enforcement but don't have a good way to voice that support. gplenforced.org is essentially a quick and dirty hack I wrote to make that dead-simple.
