  1. Hello there everyone. As we all know The Great Forum War has begun and even before it did, people sided with their faction and desperately switched towards the one they wanted after the teams were made public. Now I am not the one for Roleplay or anything, but I thought we could give our soldiers a face. So I made this thread. Example: Faction: GDR Rank: First Lieutenant Name: Coldfreeze Function: Heavy support / battering ram Reason for Joining (RFJ): Been part of the GDR all my live, it is everything I know and it has done nothing but bring peace to me and my family, now when we first heard about the OS it felt unimportant, till one of their so called strikes of "justice" killed one of my best mates. One rule, never make it personal. Now the idea is red for GDR files, Blue for OS and Green for mercs. No flaming or hate mongering. Can't spell functional without fun!
  2. Introduction As many of you may have noticed, I've been quite excited for something called Ubuntu. Ubuntu is a free, open-source operating system (OS). The basic programming is built off of an OS, called Linux. Being free, this operating system is great for starting off a custom made computer, or just to replace an OS in some crummy old computer. In my case, I replaced Windows XP. My computer is only an Intel Pentium 4, with 2GB RAM, and less than 512 MB of video memory. These specs are outdates by 6 years, at least. Basicallly, this computer is, or was (until now) useless. I will review Ubuntu down below. GUI/Design The design of Ubuntu is very elegant. There is a side drawer, which very beautiful, and translucent. In fact, there isn't much to says, so I will let you all decide for yourselves, with a screen shot from my computer. Functionality & Features I feel that I made a good decision with Ubuntu, as it provides an amzing array of features that XP didn't have. It includes Ubuntu Software Center, which is like the App Store, or the Play Store on Google devices. Not only does it have amazing free games, etc, but you can also get traditional desktop programs, which then are put as shortcuts on your actual desktop. In terms of quality, Ubuntu is very good. For a free price, you would expect poor quality, yet I have to say, that it actually beats Windows XP. Also, I did not expect this, but my boot time was EXCEPTIONALLY better. Normally it would take 15 seconds to start up, then about 30 seconds to fully login. With this OS, I was at the login screen within 5 seconds, and it took me 10 seconds MAXIMUM to login. My theory on this is, that Ubuntu takes up less hard drive space, which allows for it to startup faster all together. Speaking of which, this OS requires very minimal system requirements, as it can run if you have 1GB+ RAM, at least (around) 10GB, and a processor which runs at least at 2GhZ. This also includes a beautifu; search bar which is much like iOS, that allows you to search your computer, the internet, your (free) 5GB cloud storage, and much more. The Verdict Ubuntu is worth downloading in order to replace Windows XP, or Vista. You can get features from Windows 8, that you couldn't before, due to lack of money to buyWindows 8, or low system specifications. I GIVE IT 9.5/10 Near perfect! Especially for the price!
  3. Linux Based OS For The TV and Living Room "As we’ve been working on bringing Steam to the living room, we’ve come to the conclusion that the environment best suited to delivering value to customers is an operating system built around Steam itself. SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience built for the big screen. It will be available soon as a free stand-alone operating system for living room machines." - Says Valve This will allow steam to have: Better Graphics Processing - "Game Developers" are already availing themselves to these performance perks "as they target SteamOS for their new releases" You can Stream games from you Windows or Mac system to a SteamOS machine. You will also be able to stream "Music, TV, and Movies" - Valve Says it's "working with many of the media services you know and love." No names yet but we can assume they want to compete with Roku/AppleTV. Plus "Family Sharing" - Announced a few weeks ago, Valve plans to let you have up to 10 friends (you choose) whom can each access your paid games and get their own achievements and their own save slots. On top of this, announcements are still to come, in the next few weeks, from Valve on even more plans for the future. Things such as: News regarding AAA titles coming natively to SteamOS in 2014. And, Gabe Newell promises STEAM BOX news next week!!! - At Linuxcon 2013, Newell stated that Valves next step will be to "release some work we've done on the hardware side." Newell said in March, that SteamBox Prototypes will be release in 2013. Check out more on this subject: Steam TimeTech CVG This post has been promoted to an article
