Embrace, extend, and protect? Microsoft joins the Open Invention Network to 'protect Linux and open source'

Sure… protecting Linux as far as it's in their interest :p
I doubt that they will let go their dominance on the gaming field because they joined this. They just need it for their cloud services.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm is now officially available on Linux

jensVery cool, purchased from Feral Store.
I hope there will be many more games from Feral, but considering how Steam Play gets of the ground I fear this is already one of their latest games released for Linux.
How is Proton going better than Wine? Besides the direct integration in Steam which is very handy, and the good interaction with VR and gamepads, I don't see much difference with Wine. How is that "getting of the ground"? I mean, it doesn't seem like we can run more games than before than with Wine, and a native port is still a cleaner way to go and better seen by the community anyway.

But I don't really understand the effort that was put into it. Isn't Unity supposed to be kind of a one-push-button-port from the first place? Are there a lot of windows specific third parties in this game?

Note that if you buy it from the humble bundle widget on their website, you get both the DRM-free version and steam keys, and a copy of Human resource machine.

sounds like promoting lazy linux support but whatever… I guess it's good to improve the overwhole situation.

Snap! The new Minecraft launcher now has another easy way to be installed on Linux

PJgot to admit I have mixed feelings when I read news like this.
On the one hand it is awesome to hear about new ways of getting your software without hassle of hunting dependencies, configs etc and appreciate diversity in Linux.
But on the other hand - damn it, can't we agree on a single universal package format, not 3? It has this deb vs rpm stench all over it. Certainly I'd be happier if all the effort would went into making a single working, universally recognized format before adding new ones. Possibly Flatpak, even though personally I enjoy AppImages the most (due to its simplicity) - as it seems the most widely accepted across distros and does not bear the usual Canonical controversy mark...
Anyway, It's not passing the launcher for me with flatpak, I get a crash as soon as it tries to load some drivers via libGL

The updated release of 'Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive' that has Linux support is now on GOG
12 July 2018 at 6:16 am UTC

Same price on Steam and Gog? Buying it on Steam. I'm done with gog, I've been waiting for their galaxy client for way too long, I give up.
It's the most wanted feature on the user wishlist for now a long time

Visual novel 'Higurashi When They Cry Hou' part 6 is now out
22 June 2018 at 12:18 pm UTC

hidekinGreat visual novel serie ;-) Probably the best available on linux with umineko.
btw it's not NSFW , no nude at all it's really a dark visual novel . A mix of horror , murders , detective stuffs. Not really nsfw .

i haven't played this one, but danganronpa is a visual novel hard to beat, if this one is better, it really has a huge wow factor
