JavaScript/HTML 5 Gaming? 201

cjcela writes "Lately I've seen some HTML 5/JavaScript games popping up on the web. Most of them lack sound, and are not polished, but little by little this is changing. As an example, check Galactic Plunder. While it is only a single-level proof of concept, it is one of the first arcade non-Flash games that I've found playable. Do you know of other comparable or better pure JavaScript games?"

Comment Re:Cisco (Score 1) 528

At Cisco, I've found that MacBook Pros are the new "hot" laptop for engineers (320 GB, Snow Leopard, 4 GB RAM, instant on/off, etc. versus dog-slow Lenovos with smaller disks, smaller RAM, etc.). And I'm seeing more and more iMacs on engineers' desks.

To be fair, a lot of those Macs have VMWare Fusion (for those things that absolutely require Windows), but I think the overall goal for the company is to get everything running on Cisco's own hardened version of Linux. It won't happen overnight, but the seeds have already been planted.

On the other hand, Cisco doesn't really bad-mouth Windows. It sees Microsoft as a strategic partner.
