I was expecting more WHATABOUTISM using ego defense mechanism RATIONALIZING how Microsoft is GOOD or TRUSTWORTHY or I LIKE THEM, lol.

Good for Blender, and good on the community not being over CHARMED by these simple business deeds.

Looks like you can play StarCraft / BroodWar on Pi4 too so that's hella awesome,

I like the VESA mount -- could make a good Client / Server Linux setup just mounted on the back of a monitor anywhere in the house.

Speculation: They bet on all the race horses and once the winner emerges they narrow their bets. VR is emerging technology.

Very exciting to see OpenXR developments, It's going to be a exciting year for VR @ Valve & hopefully VR @ Linux too.

Hmm, another game I used to be interested in but never played.

I'm not 100% sold on EA, I'd hate to buy into their stuff only to have them screw me over again.

Maybe someday.

Edit: Or maybe there's a bigger argument to be made about how DRM-free and offline discs prevent this kind of bullshit before it can ever even happen.

Quoting: TimeFreezeMeh, still waiting for the System Shock Enhanced Edition update. Its now 5 years since they promised that.

Forgive my ignorance, but with the source code released, is there something missing?

Maybe make a bug report asking for enhanced source code to be released?

I bought a dongle, honestly I miss my X360 controllers because they were so hazel free besides a fat USB dongle adding cordage. Too bad they're hard to buy now :\
