I had that issue with Metro 2033. Even without VR (I do have a 27" monitor, so that was a factor probably) I got sick playing it.
I think it was because I'd be moving forward and my characters head (ie. camera) would be swiveling around looking at other things

There's a good dozen or more configurations for the hardware.

There's guides on the internet to installing different versions of Linux on it. (Unless you want to do Android dev)
I bought the A1000 version and a laptop HD (plugs in the top).
Then I installed Debian (using an online guide) and MiniDLNA. I use it as a media server for my TV.

" As of 2009[dated info], multiple Perl 6 implementations are under development, but none of them are considered "complete". "
So, there have been releases of Perl 6 but no finalization, but aren't most programming languages like that now?
e.g. C# has 6 versions and Java (12ish, according to Wiki). Languages forever evolving.
I know PERL is old and people except it to be more rigid like Fortran (even with new versions), but Fortran isn't being used for web apps, etc. that see constant technological innovation.

That seems logical and intelligent,so I'm going to suggest two possibilities.
Either the people running Code Spaces are morons or they cooked up this hacker story to cover their tracks because of something else.
Either, again that they screwed up because they are morons, or that they are hemorrhaging money and wanted to shut down.
