NVIDIA 378.13 stable driver released

Does it fix the screen tearing I experience with my GTX1060? I have checked the "advanced" composition boxes in nvidia settings on previous driver. Still not gòod.

Whenever I read about DE's I always hear "lightweight" mentioned like it's something great.

I use KDE Plasma because I have a powerful desktop machine I've built and want a "heavyweight" DE to match.

I love how much depth KDE Plasma has... you can customise everything.

Currently running Debian Jessie (Plasma 4) on one SSD and KDE Neon (Plasma 5.8 LTS) on another.

Shadow Warrior 2 should still be coming to Linux after all, was a miscommunication

Linux is an unusual platform for game companies because it isn't "owned" by anyone. At least not a corporation who is pushing developers for content. Sure, Valve has an interest in Linux but most of their business isn't Linux. You won't see huge billboards with "Linux" all over them. Yet. Lol.

riusmaAccording to SteamSpy (data from october 2015) only 1% of Steam accounts (representing 1.3 millions at that time) have more than 107 games in their library, and only 20% of Steam accounts has more than 4 games (source: Canard PC, october 15th 2015).

I just crunched the numbers on this...

1% of all Steam accounts have more than 107 games in Library = 13000 Steam Users with > 107 games in Library.

Of those 13K users, latest Steam hardware survey (August 2016) shows Linux usage at 0.83% = 108 Linux users with > 107 games in Library.

ONLY 108 LINUX USERS ON STEAM WITH > 107 GAMES IN THEIR LIBRARY!!

Obviously there is some leeway here with average Linux user Steam Library numbers but this makes quite sobering reading!!

It's not 1% of 1.3 million accounts, it's 1% of the steam users that equals 1.3millions so it's 10790 Linux users with > 107 games.

Oh phew. I'm terrible with maths.
