Linux games and toys, get lost
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 22, 2011
Because I never see anyone else criticize their presence, I wonder if I'm the only one who has no use for games or toys, especially toys (which I suspect to be an indulgence of software designers) on any Linux distro. I could do without any games or toys. How about you?

Distro best for Games/Development on a laptop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 23, 2010
Hello, this is my first time on these forums.
My laptop has;
2.53Ghz Intel core 2 duo
4GBs DDR2 RAM (and)
ATi Mobility Radeon HD 3650
I'm currently looking for a 64-bit distro that doesn't use to much RAM (maybe less than 1GB), at least looks nice, and that I can use to play games on wine and natively on the distro. And being able to use Blender 3D to create 3d models and being able to compile programs easily.
(I know that all the distros can compile programs, run wine, use blender etc. but some distros can focus on different audiences and have different performances)
I've played around with a couple of distros, but it's a little hard to pick between them. (Ubuntu, Gentoo etc or any other distro people have used)
If anyone can help me pick between some distros, I would truly be greatful!
Best Linux Desktop environment for gaming?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2013
Hi everyone...So I know that Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch are pretty much the way to go if you want the best gaming support (Steam). However what would be the best DE for gaming, performance wise? I was thinking XFCE but people have been saying KDE and Unity because of something called "unredirect fullscreen windows" and that you can turn off "compositing". People have also stated that XFCE does not have this feature. What are these two things and do they impact FPS in gaming? (Again, what would be your best DE for gaming?)
best linux distro for kids aged 35
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 1, 2005
Hey there everyone-
I'm thinking about putting linux on some old machines to be used by a couple of kids about 4-5 years old. I use Slackware so I can always put that on and set it up manually, but I was wondering if there was any young kids-specific distro, that has an easy DE/WM, all the games and educational stuff installed, easy to use widgets/backgrounds/panels/icons etc. Something that is tailor-made, I guess.
I've googled around a bit but have not found anything specific. I've looked through the distros at distrowatch, and there are several that are education-based, but they are more geared towards running linux in the school and seem focused more on older kids.
Anything out there?
List of upcoming commercial Linux games !

For the updated list visit :
In this thread I want to gather a list of upcoming commercial Linux games.
Why commercial ?
As you know free/open source is evolution therefore programs are never really finished, new versions being released every few months, so it will be very very hard to track and update every new game release - we have so many of those.
Games that are very likely to have a Linux client (pretty much confirmed)
01. Age Of the Decadence (A combat demo coming out soon)
02. The Broken Hourglass (Still in active development)
03. Disciples 2: Dark Prophecy (LGP haven't forgot about it).
04. Bandits: Phoenix Rising (LGP port)
05. Shadowgrounds Survivor (LGP port)
06. Unknown (after the excellent sells they had last week they will definitely make a Linux client).
07. Postal 3
09. Unreal Tournament 3 (Icculus is still porting it).
10. Heroes of Newerth (currently in closed beta, but wo

What is the best linux gaming Distro?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 25, 2010
This probably will be a very annoying question for some users, but frankly I don't care.
What is the best for linux; I know windows is ideal but if you mention it I will pulverize you!
I understand that gaming is a shaky subject for ubuntu but bear with me; Oh and mods this isn't a topic for wine as I'm not talking about ubuntu I'm talking about linux/unix os's in general.
Again, What is the most versatile gaming linux os; not just for windows games but all games in general?
