The Linux userbase has been a great supporter of indie games these last few years. That fact should be celebrated more than any big title releases IMHO.
Excellent point! I never knew they provided these repos...
Either way, the version jump is too large to demand an automatic update, so the next natural step would be a security update, which is supposed to be supported by 12.04 and 14.04.
These usually enter the stream as patches, so it is likely that nobody has submitted a patch to fix these holes.
Even if they did remove it, it will only prevent new installations of that package, it will _not_ remove all those instances already running.
Think ahead, folks.
I live in a third-world country.
Talk of high speed internet for education, medical applications and small business empowerment is all very noble.
But all I read in the news about your first-world high speed 'ternet is how you complain about streaming TV restrictions.
The real world is not so pragmatic.
It must be microsoft's answer to running in kiosk mode. Just like how UAC was added after-the-fact to provide a secure userspace.
Monty Python predicted this, they also predicted how to fix this problem, that video is left as an exercise for the reader to find.
I for one am keen to see how this turns out. Will you keep us updated if you do try to get the rig running?
Oh and for the record: if I was someone who strives to be the first to say "use a vm!", I would recommend qemu / kvm
For comparison: here in South Africa it costs ZAR 13.83 per litre or 0.264172 gallons.
> ZAR 3.65 per gallon
> USD 34.34 cents per gallon (@1 ZAR == 0.094 USD)
That is 15.94 cents above the current US rate. You are closing in.
Another side effect not mentioned in TFA is that mosquito zones would increase, allowing them to reach areas previously too cold to breed. Combined with mosquito borne diseases, could lead to a most epically disasterous time.
Tron, is that you...?
"The presence of the virus on the victims' teeth supports Brooks' claim."
Coincidentally, the author of The Zombie Survival Guide shares the same surname... or not so coincidental?
Talk about a historical cover-up!
You just made my day!
If the mag promises to cover various flavors across the gnu linux landscape, and the technologies and people surrounding it, then I would love to hear your reasoning as to how this is fragmenting the community.
But... that would be "raising taxes"! And that is a sin against the lord our god, Grover Norquist.
