Bevy seems like an impressive upcoming free and open source game engine made with Rust
3 October 2020 at 2:56 pm UTC

Quoting: setzer22Bevy looks awesome for Rust gamedev! Another popular choice for game development in Rust is Godot, which can run Rust code via its GDNative API. I'm currently using that for my game and I'm enjoying it a lot!

Godot+Rust (or other engines like Bevy) are a very Linux-friendly setup :) I develop 100% on Linux, but I had no trouble cross-compiling my Rust code to play on Windows (compared to the cross-compilation hell in C++, with Rust it's literally a one-liner!).
Oh I didn't know that one can use Godot with Rust. Rust is an amazing language and Godot an amazing engine, so natural fit for me :D

Xfce desktop environment sees a 4.16pre1 release, better fractional scaling

Quoting: AvikarrXFCE is the best desktop environment. I used, and tested almost all of DE, and I always come back to XFCE. I don't know, it just works, it is very lightweight, simplistic, customizable and beautiful :) When i look at it, I just feel at home.
Funny, I can say the exact same things about my beloved KDE ;)

Great to see XFCE mature even more. I had to revert back to it while KDE was broken because of the Qt 5.15 debacle on my Artix system. And while it was only a couple of days, it was a pleasent journey. But now that KDE is fixed again, I will go back to my beloved KDE ;)

Norse-inspired fantasy survival game Valheim looks awesome

Whining like "it is not on itch so I won't buy", "without gog release I won't buy", "gog release has not all multiplayer functions like the steam version, I won't buy" etc is annoying and leads us no where. At least not to a reasonable marketshare or to more native games on Linux.
Well I wasn't whining, I said 'I don't care anymore'. Slight difference

The Plasma 5.19 desktop from KDE has released

Quoting: mylkai know, but i havent found a single one, that can compare to win10

case is closed if you build a clone of win10 task manager with ksys and show me.... get on it

Then what is the special functionality that you are missing? Still haven't told

Oh and this is still not coupled with KDE. You can use any sysmon tool you want on any DE...

That is practically Doom in Pixelart. Can't go wrong with that. I love it! :D

Had the demo on Itch, it was okayish. I have a fable for Norse mythology but as such I was not particullary impressed by the game. But since it has vanished from Itch I didn't care anymore.

Quoting: mylkai know, i have it, i use it
still win10 task manager is way better

Don't know Win10 task manager very well, but does it have the ability to download new Layouts to display additional information? I think not. Case closed!

Oh and you can even create your own tabs with all the info you want to display as long as you have the tools to gather these infos. Which are basically endless ...

Quoting: mylkai wish they would improve the system monitor
more information like the win10 task manager
KDE comes with KSysGuard as a system monitor. It is by far the best system monitor of every DE I tried so far. On Arch or Arch-based systems it is part of the standard Plasma meta package.

Insta-Buy for me. The style, the setting, and the origin of this game is super appealing to me.

Old source code for Valve games CS:GO and TF2 ended up leaked online

Even if this RCE would still exist, we Linux games wouldn't probably need to fear it, cause most likely this malicious code would target Windows :D
