Where are the myst-like games from indie developers?
Jonathan Blow's new game, the witness, is inspired by myst: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Brd0F7rlXCI.
Let's just conveniently forget about [...] the Kirby yarn game
What's wrong with the kirby yarn game? It's obviously meant for kids and, as such, I think it's a great design. As a kid's platformer, I don't really see what more people could be asking for.
If you read the linked ChromeShell page, it says it goes from standby to the Chrome browser in 3 seconds. It actually takes 30 seconds to boot, which isn't much better than Windows. Actually, is that even better?
From the linked ChromeShell page: "ChromeShell is a non-google affiliated replacement shell for windows", ie. this _is_ windows, which would explain why it's not much better than windows. Any observed gain would be linked to the presumably lighter ui of this new shell. Since, this has nothing to do with google's chrome-os appart for the fact that it copies its interface, no performance implication should be derived from it.
Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
