Filed under
Gaming

Penguin Pete: Heretic was a game which was based on the Doom engine and produced in joint cooperation by id and Raven Software. It has many improvements on the Doom games, including an inventory system, the ability to look up and down, a flying power-up, and lots of eye and ear candy effects. In my opinion, it's under appreciated.

Ubuntu and UUID

Filed under
Ubuntu

wolfger.wordpress: Ubuntu mounts devices with something called UUID. I’d never heard of it before, but it “just worked”, so I left it alone. It wasn’t a problem. Until I installed Gutsy Tribe 5 on my other partition. Gutsy decided that it needed to format my swap partition for some odd reason. Formatting it, apparently, gives it a new UUID.

Software

iTWire: This month, the GNOME project - one of two main choices when it comes to desktop environments for Linux - celebrates 10 years of existence. Is this just one more case of duplication in the FOSS arena? Did we need GNOME at all?

openoffice.org tips: I just started using feature this recently, for my LinuxWorld presentation. It's very nice. Anytime you can reference some text, rather than embedding it in the formatting, it's good.

Filed under
Microsoft

Dana Blankenhorn: Instead of selling Windows for, say, $150, through an OEM, sell one year of it for $99. Require registration for updates, and then charge $75/year for maintenance, just like the anti-virals do.

DesktopLinux: Vista's been something of a flop. I know it. You know it. Even in Bill Gates' secret sanctum hidden underneath his mansion they know it. Businesses, in particular, aren't about to touch Vista for corporate desktops until they get SP1. Guess what? They're not going to be getting it anytime soon.
