Entroware have unleashed Zeus, a powerful new "Ultra Mobile" Linux laptop

No.

But I would be in for a cheap ARM laptop ultraportable, with a decent screen (slim bezels not to loose space).
I only need vim in a VT, and a couple of days of battery

OK, if you want to be fancy, add in links, ssh, and maybe, maybe some VNC or GUI of some kind (with a browser).

But all I personaly really need right now is a cheap, low-power portable terminal

I'd recommend a Chromebook with an IPS display. Just nuke ChromeOS and use your distro of choice.

Bonus nachos if you get a model that's fanless.

So is this a roguelike, or are the missions and world static, and is there a save function?

I'm pretty burned out on permadeath roguelikes...

FinnWhat kind of performance are people getting in Rust?

I've had it in my library and never really played it. I"m getting ~25fps on any settings other than the lowest, where I can maintain ~60fps.

Is this normal Linux performance for Rust?
I run it on reasonable settings, a mix of medium/high i think with usually around 70-80FPS.

Damn! I wonder if the budget side of my 970 is starting to show...

I'm going to mess with my settings to see if I can get it to run reasonably on medium.

Edit: I just played around with NVidia Settings open on a secondary monitor and any preset above the lowest would use > 4GB of VRAM causing insane slowdown. So, it looks like a 1080 ti is in my future (or whatever is top of the line after I save to get my house rewired that is ).

Purple Library GuySide question: It seems like Chromebooks have been selling surprisingly well lately. Is anyone writing games for them? Would such games run on normal Linux? If they don't, could a library be written to make a normal Linux run them (or vice versa, to make a Chromebook run games for SteamOS as long as they were lightweight enough for the little thing)? Would any or all of these things be useful for general Linux gaming?

You can already play Steam Linux games on a Chromebook via a crouton chroot. I've done some gaming on my Toshiba Chromebook 2 2014 via an Ubuntu chroot and it plays stuff like Nuclear Throne, Risk of Rain and Binding of Isaac fine. I mean, it's not ideal (don't expect anything 3D to run), but for simple 2D games it's adequate. I've actually been thinking of trying out some VNs on it.

What are you playing this weekend?

Dusting of Dying Light and starting Higurashi When They Cry.

Played through Transmissions: Element 120 last night (it rocked!).
