    Re: EULA's, Lawsuits, and Theft... Oh My!

    It's worth mentioning the final nail in SCO's coffin was the finding of Novell not actually having sold them the Unix copyrights via some accounting loophole.

    Re: Anti-malware software on Android

    You'll want it. Android is virus prone.
  3. Re: I now have Ubuntu 20.04 running on 5 machines

    In my case, I've just been too busy to upgrade to 20.04. One of these days I'll have the free time.
  4. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    While that's a lot more than I thought, I don't think glibc itself is in a snap. At least, the one the system is using. From what I know, that doesn't seem possible.

    Re: yet another (repeatable) goof by Firefox

    I hate 2FA with every fiber of my being. It should always be opt-in, not opt-out imo.

    Re: The promises, the disappointments

    I made a really nice Fluxbox theme back in the day, and somehow I'm not the same level of notoriety of Linus Torvalds. It's a cruel world. :frown:

    [SOLVED] Re: Which of these eSport games works on Ubuntu?

    I didn't think of that. Kind of eerie if you think about it. I'm ultimately hoping for as much of the OS to go open source as they can.

    FreeDOS Derivatives

    I had a funny thought a few years ago I don't think I ever saw come to fruition. We all know the old Windows versions were based on DOS. From what I researched a few years ago, I saw some people...
  9. Re: What's the rationale that Ubuntu now wants to install everything in a snap packag

    I don't think that this is really a major concern for server or desktop. Space is cheap.


    I think this is only really a problem for embedded which, I don't imagine Canonical is going to ship...

    [SOLVED] Re: Which of these eSport games works on Ubuntu?

    A bit of interesting backstory here for anyone who hasn't delved into this part of happenings:

    Microsoft scared Valve to death by releasing the Microsoft Store, with its UWP API claiming to be the...
  11. Re: How do I make my Ubuntu 20.04 look like this? iRaspbian

    Their website won't load for me. Does it only work in Safari?

    But that being said, without actually downloading it, I couldn't tell you. I would hazard a guess and say XFCE (though that all app...

    [SOLVED] Re: Which of these eSport games works on Ubuntu?

    I would be unsurprised if Valve has approached them sometime since 2014. To my knowledge, Valve bankrolled a lot of the Linux ports on their platform since then.

    Re: IPv6 annoyance

    These types of jobs are fairly rare where I'm at. What kind of stack do you work with?

    BORK!

    Hmm, maybe the other whisker is behind one other whisker?
  15. Re: Java Minecraft on Ubuntu Linux Crashes whole computer

    That's true, thanks! I probably should of mentioned that, I just didn't want to complicate the situation with JRE_HOME and PATH, or shell scripts, if he didn't need those things.
  16. Re: Java Minecraft on Ubuntu Linux Crashes whole computer

    IIRC Spigot and like mods still recommend JVM 8. Notch recommended the Sun VM at the time, but I never personally encountered issues with OpenJDK.

    You can download JVM 8 here. You'll should...

  19. Re: Suggestions for a new Laptop which can run new games

    Some tips I can offer, since I've done the same before (for the games I purchased it for, Dota 2 and League of Legends, the laptop still runs well after 6 years, though it's very much EOL). Now, as a...

    [SOLVED] Re: Which of these eSport games works on Ubuntu?

    Dota 2 and CS:GO have native clients. Hearthstone, StarCraft may work using WINE and DXVK (blizzard games tend to fair well against WINE-staging). HotS didn't run last time I tried, but it used to....
  21. Re: Which is better, Ubuntu's main server or my country's server?

    My personal preference is the local mirror. IIRC at one point the Ubuntu master used to be rate capped at 50kb/s. But that may no longer be the case.

  24. Re: what are your thoughts on Linux Gaming, Ubuntu Community?

    I wasn't saying for anti-cheat, but rather performance and ease of use. WoW is fairly prone to random errors in WINE from patch to patch.
  25. Re: what are your thoughts on Linux Gaming, Ubuntu Community?

    It's going well. There's quite a few native releases in Steam. I haven't used Proton. DXVK almost singlehandedly makes WoW playable.

    Though, I think I'd be better serviced by buying an AMD card...
