Without the contributions and crowdfunding Elite: Dangerous might not have happened! There are a huge number of people who have made this happen (including myself)! That money , not only gets you early access to the game but to actually help shape the games development. The reviews so far , despite the fact that were still in Beta have been amazing , some commenting that the game is remarkably polished for this stage in the game. Others have said its occulus rift support is possibly the best showcase of the hardware out there at the moment. http://www.pcgamer.com/uk/2014... N

The last thing i would want if i was dying would be people praying for me. "And patients who knew they were being prayed for had a higher rate of post-operative complications like abnormal heart rhythms, perhaps because of the expectations the prayers created, the researchers suggested." http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03...

+ - Ableton Live Killer "Bitwig Studio" Released for Linux->

polyp2000 (444682) writes "Myself and a many others will be pretty excited to learn that we now have the option ditch proprietary os'es in the music studio because in addition to OSX & Windows ; Linux is supported. So here we have a cross-platform DAW designed from the upstart by a team who left Ableton to come up with something designed to shake up the market somewhat and solve some of the problems with traditional DAW's.

Some people may be a little disheartened to learn that it is not open source (that doenst really bother me) — but it does feature an open API to permit modding of the software. It also supports VST's and linux native plugins. I will be taking the demo for a test drive tonight. Are there any linux users here on Slashdot that have been lucky enough to have tried the beta yet?"

+ - KDE's Plasma Next will not support Wayland->

Submitted by sfcrazy
sfcrazy (1542989) writes "Initial release of Plasma Next won’t have full Wayland support. What does full support mean? As it is well known that the next generation of KDE Software will have separate release cycles for libraries (KDE Frameworks 5), workspaces (Plasma Next) and applications. So there are three sets of independent projects within the so-called “KDE Software” umbrella and each set has different level of support or integration with Wayland. So in a nutshell "KDE5" won't support Wayland."
