The upcoming modular Framework Laptop sounds super exciting
26 February 2021 at 6:11 pm UTC

I'm most excited about this laptop because my wife likes the look of it and if she gets this over a Zenbook it will mean a much easier repair process for me down the road.

Quoting: HJno amd?

I am actually preferring the Intel GPU myself as I plan to want to run a FLOSS distro on it and AMD GPUs won't work for that.

Quoting: hm11cool! how much we talking about? ...5K?

I'd happily pay the 5K if I had it and it did cost that. Sometimes you have to put your money where your mouth is on certain issues. This laptop gives me many things I want, some of which no other laptop does.

Hopefully they add this to the GOG version as well.

Did they find any three breasted prostitutes yet ? Curious minds got to know.

Linux Mint want to remind you to run updates

The majority of humans are dumb. Shocking. Most people are too lazy to even perform basic maintenance on their car let alone their computer. Gotta clear that Netflix backlog first, they'll update later.

I'd promise to not buy any more of their games but with the DRM they load them with these days I had already done that years ago.

Didn't meet such an issue...

From the Itch.io page:

"Dear Linux users,

Before being able to run the game, please open the config.ini file and set FULLSCREEN = no

In case you use a screen resolution which is lower than Full HD (1920x1080), please also add:

RESIZEABLE = yes

RESOLUTION = 1366x768 (please type in YOUR resolution here)"

I noticed the Steam version launched in windowed mode by default bypassing this.

RetroArch announce the Open Hardware project, plus a new fantasy console core
22 February 2021 at 6:46 pm UTC

I'll wait to hear more about the specs of the project to be optimistic. Many projects love to throw around the word "open" and then use closed source binaries/BIOS and other non open practices.

Monado now officially OpenXR conformant, gets a SteamVR driver
16 February 2021 at 7:05 pm UTC

I remember being so pumped for VR back in the day and then when it came out all I saw were reasons not to dump money on it. I won't pretend to understand all of the ins and outs of Monado but if it means VR on Linux is seeing progress then i'm happy.

I am not the biggest fan of point and click games so what I ask from them is to be somewhat unique either in setting, style or story and to not have nonsensical puzzles. PRIM checked those boxes for me, the fact they have an early bird option and offer a DRM free Linux version means I pledged after enjoying the demo. Hopefully they fix the fullscreen issue on Linux by launch though.

I would love a GOG version just on principle of Windows users getting one but I feel I will be disappointed.

Quoting: Purple Library GuyBut . . . but that's impossible! Didn't Proton kill native releases?!?!

Considering it's not out yet you may be jumping the gun here. Not to mention one game doesn't shift the balance regardless. If the percent of games that see a native release is less than it was before Proton does it matter if we get a specific native release of this game ?
