I'm going to go out on a limb and guess they aren't going to announce that they're open sourcing their Linux driver and/or co-operating fully with the nouveau developers to make the open source driver feature complete.

Would be nice to be surprised....

Mostly Hellpoint, although this week we started fostering kittens, and there's an online music festival I'm watching this weekend, so I've not had much time to play!

Quotetheir ultimate goal to have the same 'detail and realism as Dwarf Fortress'.

Wow, that's quite an aim! I'll have to check this one out.

Looks like the recent upwards trend of the Linux market share has calmed down

Quoting: lordgaultChina wants to stop using Windows and they are working on a Deepin-based GNU/Linux system.The company created for this purpose is UNIONTECH and the operating system has been named UOS (based on Deepin). In addition, this company is working on the necessary software to replace the Windows software. Can you imagine what will happen when China leaves Windows and adopts UOS?

Don't forget there's likely to be a change in regime (and therefore policy) in one of the world's biggest bully states in the next few months, so I wouldn't be surprised if selling things to one of the world's biggest economies becomes the "in thing" again. I can see the latter getting a sweetheart deal to keep MS' market share up, although it'll be interesting to see if the damage has been done and this drive to nationally produced products stays strong.

Can't play for long with keyboard and mouse because the camera can only move ~720 degrees before it stops going in that direction.

Had good fun playing with a Steam controller though, doesn't seem to have the same issues.

My opinion is that the price should be the price, and that should be converted to the real-time equivalent for the currency you're buying in.

So game = £10. At time of writing:
  • UK: £10

  • USA: $13.15

  • Japan: ¥1386

  • Europe: €11.12

etc. Then apply whatever local tax applies (which is probably where most of the pressure on Valve comes from, taxperson always wants their cut...).

Haven't played yet, but there's already an update. :o

What play button have you been clicking on lately?

Alas, this past week has been little more than Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Switch) and The Last of Us: Part 2 (PS4). Think I'm coming to the end of the latter, so may have more time for Linux gaming next week...

Cadmus has an insane packaging system, so it basically has to use that appimage bollocks. Hopefully this software can actually be packaged properly.

QuoteOn the Linux side, they've hooked it up with "a new GTK+ based host for Flutter apps on all Linux distros".

Meh, not interested then.
