Linux Gaming With Sabayon Gaming Edition DVD

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the most common complaints I hear about 
| Linux is that itâs just no good for gaming. 
| Some complain about hardware support, others 
| the lack of titles, others that itâs just too 
| complicated. Itâs true that Linux probably 
| isnât the first platform that comes to mind 
| when I think about PC gaming, but some parts 
| of that reputation are inaccurate or outdated. 
| Sabayon Gaming DVD takes on that myth to see 
| just what a Linux gaming system can do. Itâs 
| got a fast Gentoo base, built-in codecs and 3D 
| driver support, Compiz, and many of the best 
| games available for Linux. On top of the usual 
| Gnome games, you get such titles as Neverball, 
| Battle for Wesnoth, OpenArena, Tremulous, 
| Warsow, Nexuiz, and Warzone 2100, all playable 
| from the live DVD.

Review: Supreme Super Gamer LiveDVD

,----[ Quote ]
| So what's my conclusion?  It's good.  Supreme Super Gamer does a bangup job
| of providing a good quality gaming experience on Linux, and is definitely
| worth checking out.  On a slight side note, SSG is one of two releases from
| the Super Gamer crew of late.


Linux Got Game!

| Depending upon your preferences, Supergamer Supreme can be totally awesome.
| It can be run from the live DVD with almost as good performance as when
| installed. Perhaps you don't mind booting back and forth between systems, and
| as such the Firefox, MPlayer, and GIMP versions may not matter all that much.
| Even if you prefer to avoid lots of booting, are the older versions even an
| issue for you? Despite the drawbacks, Supergamer Supreme is still the best
| gaming distro available.



SuperGamer Live DVD

,----[ Quote ]
| A while back I took at a Linux distribution geared solely toward playing
| games called Live Linux Gaming. Well thereâs another remastered distribution
| for gamers called SuperGamer. SuperGamer is based on VectorLinux and requires
| a dual layer DVD. It weighs in at roughly 8GB so itâs a bit on the chunky
| side as a download. But, given the number of games it comes with (more on
| that below), you can understand why itâs such a large download. SuperGamer is
| based on the kernel and can run on 32 or 64 bit computers.
| [...]
| SuperGamer is a great addition to the remastered distro collection of any
| intermediate or advanced Linux user. Itâs well worth a download even given
| itâs large file size. Linux gamers in particular should probably consider
| this a must-have given the level of convenience in having all of its games
| right at their fingertips in a Live CD.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
