Frets on Fire: Play the guitar with your keyboard, Rock ‘em!

Filed under
Software

Did you ever wanted to emulate your favorite guitar idol? With Frets on Fire you can try it from your very own keyboard. All you have to do is to pick it up as if it was a guitar, with one hand pressing the fret buttons (F1 to F5) and another pressing the pick button (Enter).

Frets on Fire, or FoF for short, a clone of the Guitar Hero video games. As joysticks are also supported, you can even use the Guitar Hero controller with a PS2/USB adapter instead of the keyboard to increase the feeling of being a rock star. Frets on Fire was the winner of the Assembly demo party 2006 game development competition.

The keys keep appearing in the screen as the song is being played. All you have to do is to press in the correct keys (frets), and then mark them with Enter (pick button) in the very exact moment. It seems easy, doesn’t it?

Ubuntu 15.10 to Be Called Wily Werewolf

Mark Shuttleworth has just announced the name of the Ubuntu 15.10, the next iteration of the Linux distribution from Canonical, and it's Wily Werewolf. The founder of Canonical used to make these announcements on this personal blog, but he has chosen the Ubuntu Online Summit keynote to make this one. What's interesting about this particular name is the fact that it makes a full circle (almost) to the first Ubuntu release Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog), that dates back to October 2004.
