Google opens a second studio to develop Stadia games - The Division 2 this month and more
4 March 2020 at 7:07 pm UTC

Quoting: ShmerlWill they release their games for normal desktop Linux too, or they'll remain Stadia exclusive? In general, exclusivity is a bad thing.

At first, maybe; but if they achieve an hegemonic position in the industry, most likely they will not and only release exclusives for their platform.

QuoteNo exposure to Microsoft code or reverse-engineering of Microsoft software

Why is that? I'm curious I would have thought that the other way was preferable. (•ิ_•ิ)?

Looks good, I'm not fan of having trademarks in my face but as long as it isn't the usual ugly case for office or gaming case full of lights I'm good. And I would appreciate a USB port or two in the front, I know those are ugly AF but IMO functionality is much more important than aesthetics when you can't have both.

And Liam, when you say they don't yet ship it outside North America, you are talking specifically about the US or also Canada? I went to check but couldn't find detailed info.

I'm waiting for AMD to release Ryzen for laptops before buying a new one, is it known if a launch date has been defined yet?

[center]Here an abstract showcasing some of the most interesting data:[/center]

Gnome is rising while Cinnamon and Unity are waning. The others DE look stable with KDE and Gnome on the head holding 22% and 23% of the pie respectively.

Only 10% claims to never use Wine, while almost 50% said to have used it over the last month.

Gamers think that 8GB of RAM is a thing of the past as more and more of us are upgrading our systems. 16GB looks like the next standard for gaming.

Apparently Ryzen has been a success for AMD, trends show that users are slowly changing their preferences (very slowly). In the GPU department, behaviour is quite similar. Screw you nVidia!

Still, the most used model is GTX 970...

Still want to see that dude/gal's 9 monitor monster. Wonder if he/she is using 1920x1080 on it like the other 61% of mortals.

If one thing hasn't changed is that for Gamin On Linux, a good desktop is the ideal gaming rig. Only a stable 18% use something else to enjoy their games.

Ubuntu vs. Arch, they are on equal ground sharing more than 40% of the pie. What does the future holds for us folks?

I want to see a photo of how playing on those 9 monitors looks like.

Openness is a good thing. Whatever reasons Microsoft has for opening their stuff, is good it is open now. But I would advice everyone to be cautious with Microsoft, not because "MS is evil", but because MS is a business.

Accept and welcome any new open project regardless of its precedence, but don't be naive believing BS of the sort "Microsoft <3 Linux".
