It's a first-person horror/adventure game that has been getting great reviews, and the best part is that they've released a native Linux version. Time to support gaming on Linux!

It comes in a similar box and looks like it's running on pretty similar hardware, but there's a twist — it runs Android and only costs $105. All I want to know is, when will they be selling them in America and can I get one?

Microsoft is officially embracing them and has created an official OS-tan, Nanami Madobe, to represent Windows 7 in Japan. The Japanese premium set of Windows 7 Ultimate will contain an exclusive wallpaper and sound set based on her; on top of that, the character is being voiced by popular voice actress and singer Nana Mizuki. Operating systems have never been cuter!"
