Comment Re:Linux audio (Score 1) 374

Pulseaudio is a bit strange, but nothing requires it's use, and IMHO there is no real reason for it to be used unless you want to do somewhat strange things (that you generally can't do on any other type of OS).

Like per-application volume control that no other OS provides (except Windows Vista and higher, Mac OSX, etc)?

Comment Not recently ported (Score 2, Interesting) 117

This Penumbra trilogy has been on Linux for a while, the first game ran on linux somewhere in 2007 iic, so it's definitely not recently ported... the only news here is that it's perhaps cheaper now, so it's a nice slashvertisement.

That being said, these games are pretty cool if you like survival horror / adventure games.

Submission + - Is it safe to program .NET for Linux?

iplayfast writes: "I program for a number of operating systems and usually end up using C++. However as C++ is getting more and more knarly (IMHO) I'm thinking of going to C# which is similar to C++ without the knarlyness.

My worry is that given Microsoft's tendency to sue or back law suits against anything Linuxy If I develop an app for Linux using .NET will I have to re-write it 10 years down the road due to legal issues. Is it safe?"
