Will Steam Machine Solve Linux’s Gaming Woes?

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Gaming

The Steam machine is now publicly on sale as of last week, but it’s not off to the best start. A couple of weeks ago, Ars Technica compared the performance of games when running on Valve’s Linux based SteamOS and Windows 10. Six Valve games were tested on a single machine and results showed a 21 to 58 percent frame rate drop when running on Linux. While only six games were tested out of an entire collection of around 1,800 available titles, the games used Valve’s own Source engine, which is designed for Linux and SteamOS. Valve had previously stated that Steam games run faster on Linux, so it was expected that any of Valve’s own Source engine games would run smoothly.

PC Gaming Reaches Next Level Through Open Source

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

Valve, the U.S.-based video game company, altered the gaming field with the 2013 release of its operating system (SteamOS) and Steam Machines, which are hardware platforms for playing computer video games. SteamOS, which was created with Linux, the open source platform, allows smaller gaming companies, such as Alienware, CyberPowerPC and Webhallena, to create unique gaming systems (Steam Machines) by utilizing Valve’s open source operating system. This enables them to compete with large competitors such as Microsoft and Sony.

  • Road Redemption Combat Racer Fixed Up For Linux & SteamOS, Performs Well Now

    The Road Redemption developers delivered and fixed up their botched release, it seems the problem was a debug build that was sent up by mistake for SteamOS & Linux.

    The update was released in the early hours of the morning for me, so I was asleep while this was all fixed up. I also have a life outside of this website during the day, so I am not always able to write things up as soon as they happen, so please be mindful of that before bashing me/GOL in future (really surprised I had to write this section due to some comments recently). I am pleased to say I tested it out now I had some time, and it seems to work fine. It's really great to see them deliver.

  • Vendetta - Curse Of Raven's Cry Released For SteamOS & Linux

    Vendetta - Curse of Raven's Cry the big update to the poorly recieved Raven's Cry is now available on Linux & SteamOS.

    I really hope they have fixed the game up properly, and if you own Raven's Cry you can get a free copy, but you need to manually request it.

    There are no reviews yet, so it's not clear if it's actually any better. I'm not willing to spend £31.49 right now to see if it's worth it or not either considering the history. What I don't like is that they have now hidden the original release on Steam, to hide the poor reviews of course. I don't agree with that approach, as it's quite obvious they are hiding the past of the game.

These 3 things are trying to kill Linux containers

For nearly two years, Linux containers have dominated the world of enterprise IT, and for good reason — among others, they take on issues that virtualization simply cannot within application development and computing at scale and allow for the enterprise world to truly embrace concepts like devops and microservices (the Service Oriented Architecture dream from years gone by). That sound you hear is IT vendors stampeding towards the container bandwagon, but, as with every emerging tech trend, this isn’t always a good thing, as not everyone is walking the walk, regardless of what the business might actually say.

  • My Updated 3.18 Packages for GNOME Extensions
    I started releasing extension updates in 2014 due to a lot of extensions being unmaintained and seemingly break every time GNOME releases a new version of the Desktop Environment (DE). This is my third batch release post for GNOME extensions and these extension packages are for GNOME 3.18.
