They said there will be three announcements this week. I bet we'll see the steambox announcement as well.

LOL. Just saw the 'feed'.

Mods, feel free to merge.

I don't care about being 'first' either, really. I literally just came back from lunch and didn't see a post here yet about it so I made one.

Xog's topic was a minute later so even if it was merged you'd still be the OP. You win this round Grey :)

They try to emulate windows games on linux. Thats why the talk about how they try to reduce the input lag now and try to fix audio problems later.

Its not gonna be a solid solution for hardcore gamers, but I like how they want to find alternatives to Windows. Again if devs were using OpenGL more often it would be no problem.

But MS beeing corrupt pricks as they are, made certain arrangements with game studios to use their directx. this way gamers have no other choice but to buy windows.

Yeah, I'm hopeful of what they come up with too. I'm no "code monkey" (sudo reminds me more of a Phil Collins song than linux code). But I did resurrect, with Mint, an ancient iBook I found in one of my drawers. Did to see if I could do it, lol. Thing booted up 10x faster than the Mac OS. Surfing, burning, etc. just ran faster with the same hardware that slogged along with the Mac OS.

The drawback was that, back then, there wasn't a lot of software to expand on it. Don't even talk about games. So my iBook just became a fast notebook.

I don't think the rumored Steambox will run Crysis at ultra on sub $300 hardware, but I'm anxious to see what they come out with the next few days.

A $400-600 can run crysis 3 on ultra 1080p 60fps if streaming thru like onlive

Steam OS, Steambox, a bundle of the two, and how much would you want to bet that Half Life 3 will find its way into the mix.

What better way to showcase a new product than to bundle it with a groundbreaking series.
I swear to god I will bring forth a rage so complete in it's fury that your innards would boil from the sheer amount of energy pouring from your monitor.

Rook said everything that can be said.
