Free to Play Linux Games on Steam Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, April 06 2014 @ 10:00 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

In little over a year since the first stable version of Steam for Linux emerged, the number of Linux-supported games continues to grow at a rapid pace. Valve's digital game distribution currently hosts 376 games for Linux, with many quality commercial titles such as Shadowrun: Dragonfall, System Shock 2, and Europa Universalis IV to name-drop just a few of our favorites. With more game engines being natively ported to Linux, this trend is going to continue. For example, the CryEngine technology has recently been natively ported to Linux, so we could see ports of games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Crysis 3.

Keep a Watchful Eye with these Console Based Process Viewers Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 23 2014 @ 10:00 AM EST
Contributed by: sde

The top utility will require no introduction to experienced Linux users. It is a tiny utility that provides a dynamic real-time view of a running system, and is regarded as the standard tool for monitoring processes on a system. It helps with system administration by identifying users and processes that are hogging the system. It is also useful for non-system administrators, helping to track and kill errant processes. However, top is showing its age and there are a bunch of utilities that offer a more feature-laden alternative.

Focus on Your Writing by Using Markdown Editors Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 15 2014 @ 06:53 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax created by John Gruber in 2004. It is designed to be easy-to-read and easy-to-write. Readability is at the very heart of Markdown. It offers the advantages of plain text, provides a convenient format for writing for the web, but it is not intended to be a replacement for HTML. Markdown is a writing format, not a publishing format.

Up-and-Coming Clients to Tweet Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 02 2014 @ 03:08 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

The life of Twitter clients can be rather brief. Unfortunately some of our favourite clients have bitten the dust. Tweetdeck was an excellent Linux desktop client. Support for Linux regrettably ceased, although it remains available on Chrome. Twhirl was another solid desktop Abode AIR powered client that is no more. We were also downhearted to learn that the developer of Hotot has ceased development of his cracking client last month. Depressing news indeed.
