Wine Team PPA
There are two reasons to use the Wine Team PPA: frustration with the included package, and using Wine beta releases. To enable the PPA, follow these instructions. You may be prompted to do a partial upgrade - this is normal.
Wine Beta releases
If the included stable version of Wine doesn't work for the application you want to use, you can try using a beta release instead.
Unlike the stable version of Wine, Wine betas are not substantially tested and prone to regressions. This means that for your application a newer Wine release could be worse than an older one, including the stable Wine available by default.
To get the latest beta release of Wine and receive automatic updates, enable the PPA as indicated above and then install the wine1.5 package.
Very occasionally, you may want to try installing an older Wine into a new Ubuntu. This is something y

Want to join a game development team?

I want to make 2D games aimed at the open source/free software community. I am new to programming, so I got a python book and started reading. I then tried pygame and played around with it.
It would be cool to have a buddy or more, to help plan out things, get help, and have a different perspective on things. If you are interested in joining, PM me and post here. I can share more details when we get in touch. Thanks
Playing around with pygame:

I am interested in exploring application development on the iPhone (using Ubuntu). I would want to distribute them through Apple Store if that's possible. Is it possible and in that case: What do I need to get started?

VirtualBox Ubuntu + OSX for web development
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 19, 2012
I'm looking into the ability to use Ubuntu running on a VirtualBox in OSX environment as a local webserver for web development.
Ubuntu would be handling php, apache and mysql, but I would want to handle everyday activities from within OSX.
So OSX should handle files, version control, and also be able to reach the MySQL server on Ubuntu (using SequelPro).
I've gotten pretty far in trying to accomplish this when I've tried it out, but I was having trouble with shared folder, since I want to keep all the files on OSX. It's been a while so I don't recall exactly that the problem was, but since then, the need to be able to work this way has increased. It does seem difficult to accomplish though.
Does anyone have any experience of this? Is it possible to do it?
Ubuntu vs. Windows Game Performance [Development Perspective]
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 10, 2008
Hi. I use Code::Blocks IDE and OpenGL with SDL on both Ubuntu 8.10 and WindowsXP latest updates. I have my laptop setup for dual boot. I built my game in both Ubuntu and WindowsXP using the same header and cpp files.
As far as I know, all other things are equal. Here is the result: the WindowsXP system runs the game better performance wise. I tried to adjust the settings for things like graphics card and compiler options, etc., to be the same from Ubuntu to WindowsXP; I tried to make everything as similar as possible in order to achieve similar performance results.
Why does the Windows version outperform the Ubuntu version? Any ideas? Thanks for any replies.
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!
