  • Everything tech dealers need to know about Steam Machine

    So after what seems like years (well, at least three years) of rumour, speculation, sneak peaks, demos, SDKs and missed deadlines, punters can now pre-order Valve’s Steam Machine video PC-based games hardware, ahead of a full launch in November this year.

    Details, as ever, are still a little flakey, particularly with regards to the European launch - but it’s an interesting product that could make a significant and disruptive impact on the established PC and console games hardware and software markets in 2016.

  • SteamOS 2.0 Beta review - Commencing countdown

    Overall, SteamOS 2.0 Beta is not a revolutionary release, and that's a good thing. Stability and predictability are highly critical to product success. Especially when you have a really decent baseline. In this case, almost to the point of being boring, SteamOS delivers a rather painless experience, with polish and gloss across the board.

    Performance improvement, even inside a virtual machine, and Big Picture tweaks are the most notable fixes. On the other hand, using this distribution on a virtualized platform introduces its share or issues, including a somewhat tricky UEFI setup, Guest Addition hacks, and OpenGL incompatibility. Luckily, all of these can be sorted out, giving you an opportunity to test SteamOS, and get your first impression. Remember, don't do this on your live systems. But test, you shall. Anyhow, SteamOS 2.0 Beta brings the Linux gaming reality that much closer. If you consider yourself a techie, then you will want to be part of this journey, so some downloads and testing are definitely in order. Try it for yourself, see what gives. I like it. End of discussion, and this review, too.

  • Anonymous Open Source Projects
    He made it clear he is not advocating for this view, just a thought experiment. I had, well, a few thoughts on this. I tend to think of open source projects in three broad buckets. Firstly, we have the overall workflow in which the community works together to build things. This is your code review processes, issue management, translations workflow, event strategy, governance, and other pieces. Secondly, there are the individual contributions. This is how we assess what we want to build, what quality looks like, how we build modularity, and other elements. Thirdly, there is identity which covers the identity of the project and the individuals who contribute to it. Solomon taps into this third component.
  • Ostatic and Archphile Are Dead
    I’ve been meaning to write about the demise of Ostatic for a month or so now, but it’s not easy to put together an article when you have absolutely no facts. I first noticed the site was gone a month or so back, when an attempt to reach it turned up one of those “this site can’t be reached” error messages. With a little checking, I was able to verify that the site has indeed gone dark, with writers for the site evidently losing access to their content without notice. Other than that, I’ve been able to find out nothing. Even the site’s ownership is shrouded in mystery. The domain name is registered to OStatic Inc, but with absolutely no information about who’s behind the corporation, which has a listed address of 500 Beale Street in San Francisco. I made an attempt to reach someone using the telephone number included in the results of a “whois” search, but have never received a reply from the voicemail message I left. Back in the days when FOSS Force was first getting cranked up, Ostatic was something of a goto site for news and commentary on Linux and open source. This hasn’t been so true lately, although Susan Linton — the original publisher of Tux Machines — continued to post her informative and entertaining news roundup column on the site until early February — presumably until the end. I’ve reached out to Ms. Linton, hoping to find out more about the demise of Ostatic, but haven’t received a reply. Her column will certainly be missed.
  • This Week In Creative Commons History
    Since I'm here at the Creative Commons 2017 Global Summit this weekend, I want to take a break from our usual Techdirt history posts and highlight the new State Of The Commons report that has been released. These annual reports are a key part of the CC community — here at Techdirt, most of our readers already understand the importance of the free culture licensing options that CC provides to creators, but it's important to step back and look at just how much content is being created and shared thanks to this system. It also provides some good insight into exactly how people are using CC licenses, through both data and (moreso than in previous years) close-up case studies. In the coming week we'll be taking a deeper dive into some of the specifics of the report and this year's summit, but for now I want to highlight a few key points — and encourage you to check out the full report for yourself.
