However, it is now Must Accuire iShiny!
I want to be able to choose the interface I want on each environment and still have them communicate without limitations.
Damnit! Where is the "Like" button?
Who gives a crap about it -- It is Linux Mr. whatever you are, please understand the distinction between a thing that runs on Mainframes and clusters and your Christmas toy.
Good thing you left out the comma... Since Linux runs on Mainframes and clusters, and on your Christmas phone and tablet.
There's no game that would cause me to format my hard drive and wipe out the applications that have already led me to install Windows.
Linux users have been dual booting to play games for years. Turnabout would actually be kind of amusing!
What we need is some serious effort into platform integration between desktop, tablet and cellphone. Apple offers, Microsoft wants to offer it. Why don't we have it with Linux/Android?
I guess you missed that whole Ubuntu Phone thing, huh?
Put your games in it.
Give people f2p models or shareware models.
Let them purchase through web/ingame codes to unlock the full games.
Linux people will download the F2p versions by just tossing your repository in their package/software management apps a long with their other favorite repos.
Like Steam for Linux?
Or even better roll out a distro with your game thats a clone of Fedora or Debian + the above with your own binary repo.
Like the Steam Box OS?
That's true. Although, I think it'll cause sales of the Steam Machine console, not necessarily Linux in general. http://www.pcworld.com/article/2053680/valve-amd-based-steam-machines-are-also-en-route.html
Why? You can dual boot your Windows or MAC box and get the Linux version right now. That gives more uptake on the Linux side, and convinces other publishers to release for Linux / Steam Box.
>Will there ever be a Linux exclusive game?
The best candidate on the horizon is Half-Life 3 running on Valve's upcoming SteamOS linux distro. Would Steam take that chance to push it's own gaming platform?
Just delaying the Windows and MAC ports will do it. After all, they can also dual boot Linux, and this promotes the Steam Box as well.
Then save it in the required file format, in the save dialog options.
And often the formatting will be just a little off. Not much... Just enough to make you look like you don't know what you are doing.
Funny how he claims its broken by design.
I use it very frequently, and while it is crap, it does actually work.
If you have used a rock to pound nails all your life, how can you understand the advantages of a hammer?
Life would be so much easier if we could just look at the source code. -- Dave Olson
