Worldwide, HIV affects far more heterosexuals. While in developed countries, it is proportionally higher in homosexual men, almost 70% of people with HIV live in Sub-Saharan Africa. So if anything, I was being racist, not homophobic. (In reality, I was being neither, instead merely trite.)

GNOME 3.8 Released Featuring New "Classic" Mode 267

Posted by Unknown Lamer
from the extend-freely dept.
Hot on the heels of the Gtk+ 3.8 release comes GNOME 3.8. There are a few general UI improvements, but the highlight for many is the new Classic mode that replaces fallback. Instead of using code based on the old GNOME panel, Classic emulates the feel of GNOME 2 through Shell extensions (just like Linux Mint's Cinnamon interface). From the release notes: "Classic mode is a new feature for those people who prefer a more traditional desktop experience. Built entirely from GNOME 3 technologies, it adds a number of features such as an application menu, a places menu and a window switcher along the bottom of the screen. Each of these features can be used individually or in combination with other GNOME extensions."

+ - Mozilla and Epic Games Teaming Up To Bring Unreal Engine Gaming To The Browser->

MojoKid writes "There’s no doubt that gaming on the Web has improved dramatically in recent years, but Mozilla believes it has developed new technology that will deliver a big leap in what browser-based gaming can become. The company developed a highly-optimized version of Javascript that’s designed to “supercharge” a game’s code to deliver near-native performance. And now that innovation has enabled Mozilla to bring Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 to the browser. As a sort of proof of concept, Mozilla debuted this BananaBread game demo that was built using WebGL, Emscripten, and the new JavaScript version called “asm.js”. Mozilla says that it’s working with the likes of EA, Disney, and ZeptoLab to optimize games for the mobile Web, as well."
