Linux Gaming â The RPG question.

,----[ Quote ]
| Next time you hear someone say that Linux is 
| âno good for gamesâ remind them of this small 
| snapshot of what is available.  There are many 
| other great RPGâs available natively for Linux 
| and whilst this article only covers RPG titles 
| you will find that sims, fpsâs et al have a 
| range of titles equally as impressive.  When 
| you add the emulation scene in too, you can 
| start to see how silly the âno good for gamesâ 
| is.  True the latest GTA is not yet written 
| with Linux in mind, but with the maturing of 
| Wine, modern games are making it onto the 
| Linux platform.



Puppy Linux â Puppy Arcade 5 Super Fast Game Emulator

,----[ Quote ]
| We love Puppy Linux in every form. Puppy
| is fast and light on its feet. The
| addition of games is a fun way to take
| advantage of the nimble Puppy platform. If
| you are a fan of 80âs style arcade games,
| Puppy Arcade is probably the best platform
| for you. Running your games in RAM,
| without ever touching a hard drive, will
| be a cinch with the ease of Puppy Linux.
| If you are new to Linux and want to
| experience the sheer speed and fool-proof
| power of Linux, Puppy is the way to go!


Puppy Arcade 5 & Q&A with Scott Jarvis â The puppy goes retro!

,----[ Quote ]
| What was your first computer?  For me I
| started my computing life with a ZX
| Spectrum.  A rubber keyed marvel with a
| massive 48k memory.   It makes me feel
| rather old to think that there are a
| generation of computer users who have
| never experienced loading software from
| tape.
| It was only fitting then that my first
| experience of emulation came some years
| later when I owned an Amiga 500 and a
| Spectrum emulator.  Moving on  some years,
| my first emulator on the PC was the
| Windows binary Genem which only reached
| v0.19 and has been discontinued since
| 1997.


Switching to Linux with Puppy

| If you would like to be sure that you are
| doing online banking from a clean system,
| just run your operating system of choice
| (Windows/Linux/Mac) everyday and boot from
| the Puppy CD before going to your banking
| site. This is a great way to prevent malware
| keyloggers from stealing your banking
| credentials.


Puppy Linux: Just for fun

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux is something different, a tiny
| version of Linux that can be stored on a USB
| memory drive, will run in memory, and can be
| used for working on the move.


More about Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Well Puppy Linux is a winner.
| I decided to give the newer version a go.
| This one is 431 which has support for my
| wireless internet.
| I have a side bar like vista and all my
| browsing is done using firefox just as it was
| on windows.
| So far I am loving it.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
