Game Drift Linux review

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

Could this be the first truly viable Linux-based PC gaming OS? Russell Barnes takes Game Drift for a spin…

Pros: Small ISO size. Pre-installed Crossover Games comes at half the price compared to stand-alone. The Game Store shows potential

Cons: Missing essential multimedia applications. No free trial or 64-bit build. Game Store needs to grow

Price: $19 (from $4)
Homepage: Game Drift Linux

Game Drift Linux is a brand new Ubuntu-based distro from the Danish company, Linos. The firm specialises in creating Ubuntu derivatives for various special uses. As well as Game Drift, for example, the company also offers GoSchool, an Ubuntu-based live distro used by Danish schools to allow students to carry out exams on their own computers while still ensuring an identical software set and, more importantly, a secure and level playing field.

GNOME and KDE

  • Community Time at Collabora [Ed: Mono]
  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
