I've got Steam installed on Ubuntu but it's a long way from being a console replacement just yet, and I'm not switching my perfectly functional PC to Windows.
Checking notablility... notability requirements not met... deleting.
Are you sure you've got the right definition of always-on? That sounds more like "on while you're using it".
Don't. Go. There.
The US has more members though doesn't it?
I opened this story expecting an article about a TV network powered by Commodore 64s, imagine my disappointment when I see your comment is the only reference to the venerable beast.
Nariko and her sister in Heavenly Sword (both are playable characters).
There were also female lead characters in WET and Heavy Rain but can't remember their names off the top of my head, but yes they tend to be very much in the minority, probably because of the belief that men don't want to play as female characters.
It's really strange this whole "you can't get things done on Linux" meme as a kind of badge of honour in favour of using a proprietary platform. I don't see a problem with people using Mac or Windows, I mean most people do, it's not something you need to justify. I've been a long term Linux user simply because I prefer it, and tend to use it just as a user. Or in other words Web Browsing, some light Java development, occasional office style stuff (word processing, editing spreadsheets), image editing and photography, a bit of gaming though tend to use the PS3 for that. It's just a day to day family machine and I simply don't have time to do lots of maintenance. So need something that "Just Works", imagine that.
So yes, I don't edit video, but then I've never had interest in editing video. Nor am I trying to start a band. We have Windows 7 at work, and while I can tolerate it there are lots of aspects that are just plain irritating so I wouldn't use it at home.
You say this, but I never really saw anything like Journey, Flower or Unfinished Swan on the Wii. They've always seemed happier creating lots of versions of their classic line-up, and for a lot of people that seems enough.
My keyboard has a penguin key instead of those wonky squares.
I'm using GNOME3 right now and my applications are right here in front of me and the DE is out of my way. How does that make them impossible to get to again? I'm seeing less DE chrome than I used to with GNOME2.
Legally binding someone to vote in a particular way? How could that possibly go wrong...
And unless you give presidential powers to freely implement policies based on these petitions, you still have the congress and the senate. So which incumbent?
How's this for a prototype? http://www.e-architect.co.uk/liverpool/james_may_meccano_bridge.htm
It's pretty fundamental to the concept of ecosystems, as well as lots of other elements of biology. I'd have to turn that question around though and ask why you'd possibly want to leave out such an important theory from the last century or so of biology?
But you'd also have to go through a few contortions not to mention evolution in a biology course, treating it a bit like the elephant in the room. The students are bound to bring it up at some point anyway, even if you don't do it as a controlled part of the curriculum.
