The Wardrobe: A pop culture point & click adventure game for Linux
The Wardrobe is a 2D point & click game inspired by the great 90s classics such as 'Monkey Island', 'Day of the Tentacle', 'Tony Tough' and 'Sam & Max: Hit the Road'. The game has a strong sense of humor, but isn't shy about dealing with mature and non-politically correct themes.
Escape from a relentless horde in 'SWARMRIDERS', a FREE cyberpunk twin stick shooter, some thoughts
SWARMRIDERS is the perfect example of minimalism in gaming well executed. After you download the game (it's only a few MB) and enter the menu, you will instantly get the idea: you only have the Play and Exit buttons. It's that simple. No introduction, no tutorials, no story to be told (in spite of the game being introduced as a prequel), no online leaderboards and even no options to configure anything. It's made so that you enter and immediately start the mayhem.
After a truly long time, the level editor for the sadistic 'Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number' is ready!

- Huawei hedges bet on Google’s Android, plans in-house OS
Google’s two biggest partners are both working toward ditching Android
Today, Google’s Android platform and Apple’s iOS platform dominate the mobile landscape. It’s difficult to imagine that ever changing considering how far behind other platforms are at this point, but people said the same thing more than a decade ago when operating systems like Symbian and Windows Mobile ruled the world. Things change and what goes up must come down. What’s interesting, however, is that major Android vendors are already starting to prepare for life after Android despite the platform’s strong position at the moment.

I have a small script I'd ideally like to run in as many places as possible to scrape data from the internet, and so I'm looking for remote servers/VMs I can set up and run it from.
The only one I know of so far is the Amazon Web Services EC2-micro... Which is OK, but doesn't run quite as fast as I'd like...
Does anyone know of similar things? Country, location, capabilities, etc, don't matter at all so long as its free. The imprint this script makes is super tiny...
Cheers, and thanks in advance.submitted by /u/physicssmurf
I have a Thinkpad Yoga (i5 and 940m). I tried the regular Nvidia proprietary driver in debian but bumblebee is garbage performance because of the PCI bottleneck. Nvidia prime causes issues with GDM and has horrible screen tearing on lightdm. So is there anything that works well with a hybrid system to be able to switch GPUs on the fly?submitted by /u/GrayBoltWolf
