Well, for one, Photoshop. Past version 7, I never got it working.

 

Also, League of Legends never worked for me.

Yes, I've heard some versions of PS can be problematic. You'd be better off either converting to GIMP or running it in a Windows guest VM.

Also, League of Legends never worked for me.

There are step by step instructions on how to install LoL on its Appdb page. Did you try them?

One of the best things about Linux personally is font tuning. Windows has seriously awful font rendering these days. OS X is really good but you can tweak everything with Linux and get beautiful fonts on ~100DPI screens easily. For exampleattachicon.gif1433575064113.png

See, I've always seen it the other way around. Out of the box, GNU/Linux looks horrible compared to Windows and OS X with font rendering. I then spend the next hour or two tweaking it to look as good as either of them.

Skyrim data files are OS independent, so yes.

Gold, Platinum, and Silver listed Games/Apps usually run without problems. Most of the ones I've tried work. I play Diablo 2 a fair bit at the start of a new ladder through it. As for SC2, according to WineHQ, it's platinum rated. So it should work fine. What exactly are you having a problem with?

How about a list of said games that work better in GNU/Linux?

 

Diablo 2 is a horrible example.

Not sure if serious or just trolling...

Hard to say. Its kind of like a unicorn in these conversations. We always hear about it, yet we never see it.

CS6 and CC works perfectly with PlayOnLinux. Download the installer script from their site and it's done automatically.

Agreed.

I'm more curious about that statement of his, about ANY game working fine. Those people from Wine, with 162 pages of not working apps and games must be idiots...

Actually Diablo II is a perfect example. Older versions of Diablo II, such as 1.09d and 1.10 (needed by some mods), don't work well (if at all) on modern Windows (Vista and up). They work perfectly on Linux, however. I also agree with the font rendering - it's absolutely terrible on Windows. Linux font rendering is miles ahead and, again, can be tweaked to the nth degree.

It only took GNU/Linux 10-15 years to run Diablo 2 better than Windows.

So on a practical note, what sort of system specs are you guys talking about for 60+FPS in games?

 

I've not tried native gaming on Linux for 5 or so years, and I'm 99% sure virtualisation (a Windows gaming VM on Linux) won't cut it.

My experiences are that in the not too distant future ( less than a month maybe) you will tire of Ubuntu or other Linux Distro's and just go back to stock OSX. You'll realize that there really is no reason to switch. You'll tire of any type of "customization" you can do and just say "screw it" and switch back.

It is funny how some people still don't understand how true this comment is.

 

Your devices (desktop/laptop/tablet/phones etc) are things to get your work done; not things that you work on.

Completely depends on the individual. I *never* get tired of customizing my desktop, kernel and other things and I've been doing it *every single day* since 1998 (when I started using Linux). I do not use my desktop "to get work done", not in the traditional sense. I class my gaming and all my content and entertainment (I have 42TB of space filled to the brim of stuff) as "productive work". My desktop is something I work on and I never tire from it.

I'm sorry but that's complete ###### adrynalyne. I've been playing Diablo 2 on Linux for nearly 10 years on and off, and it just keeps getting better while the Windows version has been getting progressively worse and worse. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

Generalising statement is generalising. Everyone has different needs and wants. Some like to tinker, some like to have a system up and running and productive without having to tweak. A variety of Linux distros satisfies all those requirements. Windows on the other hand allows less and less customisation with every iteration, often requiring hacks (that can break a system) to make even basic changes.

Calling shenanigans on the gaming aspect of Linux. I have tried this recently over the past 2 weeks. Wine and/or Play on Linux is a bit of a pain to get stuff installed. I play a lot of MMOs and I could only get some of them to work. The one I really want to test out was Aion. However the play on Linux installer installs the EU version of the game's launcher which isn't changeable and does not let the NA account owners even sign in to launch the game. Linux is nice for some things but its going to need a lot of work before I could even think about having it native 24/7.

Call what you want. I find Linux to be far superior for gaming, and WINE / Crossover etc is very very easy to use and everything I have thrown at it works, and works better than Windows. Linux works so well for gaming, I don't even bother with Windows (I wouldn't anyway). The main task of my (high end) desktop IS gaming. And I only use Linux to do it.

I'm one of the biggest Linux "fanboys" out there -- and a sometimes-critic too. (If I didn't care I wouldn't say anything, right?)

 

There's stuff that I can't get working on WINE as well. It isn't the "magic bullet", but it's getting better and better. The people that work on WINE are volunteers, by and large. They do not get paid for that work. It's a labor of love and a challenge to them.

 

Not bad for a free Operating System that in turn is employing a compatibility layer which is also free. Play on Linux is free as well. The Crossover Project (which foots the bill for WINE as needed) is the "pay" version and offers more features and support.

 

Steam/Valve is also doing their part to improve things. We all know & generally love them to pieces.

 

Let's be a little more understanding and kind to Linux & WINE, folks. It's mostly free, and one will not find the local Authorities at their doorstep for sharing the OS and related software with their neighbors or friends.

WINE is NOT an emulator.

That gets lost on a lot of people from the Windows world. They seem to think it has the performance penalties of a bog standard emulator. Which it doesn't. It implements the Win32 API so that Windows PE's run on Linux. In the case of Gaming, it converts calls from DirectX/3D to OpenGL, similar to how a game engine would support multiple library code paths. There's no performance loss per se. And in many cases, due to Linux's superior OS design & efficiency (vs Windows), the games in question actually run faster. Valve found this to be true while porting its engine to GNU/Linux.

      Microsoft Weekly: Edge Beta for Linux, a new Segoe font, and games galore
      by Florin Bodnarescu



      A number of things happened in the last seven days, including the arrival of Edge Beta on Linux, the unveiling of a new Segoe font variant, and even a refresh of the Azure logo. You can find info about that, as well as much more below, in your Microsoft digest for the week of May 2 - 8.

      Edge Beta for Linux


      We should begin with a little info regarding Edge, as not much has happened with the browser this week.

      For starters, build 92.0.878.0 made its way to the Dev Channel. While this would normally be pretty exciting, Microsoft says the build doesn’t change much, given that it came out just a few days after the previous build. The changes are so minor that the company didn’t even bother publishing its usual post about it.

      Moving on to the stable version, namely version 90, folks may be experiencing problems with YouTube playback, namely crashing. This bug has been acknowledged by a Microsoft engineer, who suggested users disable hardware acceleration as a workaround. The same engineer confirmed that the company is working on a fix, but that the issue may be more significant than initially thought.

      And since we’re taking a tour through the various Insider channels, it’s worth pointing out that over six months after the Dev channel availability of Edge for Linux, there is now a Beta variant for the open-source OS.

      Lastly, Microsoft is now testing everse image search in the Bing sidebar. This does pretty much exactly what it sounds like it would, namely allows you to right-click on an image and search for it on Bing in the sidebar which appears on the right of the Edge browser. As per Reddit user Leopeva64-2 who stumbled upon this, the capability is available in Edge Dev, though we have not seen this on any of our test devices.

      A new font


      For Insiders in the Dev channel, Microsoft pushed out yet another preview build, 21376, which included the usual array of fixes and, rather interestingly a new Segoe font variant.

      While Segoe UI itself has been used as a default system font going all the way back to Windows Vista, a number of variants have been revealed since, including Segoe Script, Segoe Pro, and what Microsoft used for its Modern design icons, Segoe MDL2 Assets.

      The new font is called Segoe UI Variable and as the name implies, it’s meant to vary slightly depending on the use case. Segoe UI itself for example was originally designed to be optimal at 9pt sizes, while Segoe UI Variable tweaks the letter weight and tracking depending on the size.

      For smaller text, the letters are more tightly tracked, have more weight and are more open, while at display size, text isn’t quite as tightly tracked and has amplified letter terminals. For those not familiar, tracking refers to the overall horizontal spacing between font characters. This is not to be confused with kerning, which refers to the proportional spacing between two individual letters, whereas tracking refers to, say, an entire word.

      On the subject of change, we should touch on the fact that Microsoft is set to fully remove Flash from Windows 10 in July. While support for Flash was dropped by Adobe on December 31, 2020, and Microsoft released a manual update to remove it back in October of the same year, it was, as the name implies, not necessarily mandatory. Starting in July, the Redmond giant is set to push out the update to Windows 10 v1809 and above, automagically removing the media plugin.

      To that end, the firm is also removing any update blocks for versions 2004 and 20H2 (May 2020 Update, October 2020 Update), allowing folks to freely upgrade to these supported variants. We’re on the verge of a new feature update anyway, so it’s not much of a surprise that Microsoft wants folks on the latest Windows 10 version, if possible.

      Last but not least, to the dismay of perhaps three people, Windows 10X is allegedly delayed indefinitely, as Microsoft focuses on Windows 10 proper.

      Since its original unveil at the end of 2019 with the dual-screen Surface Neo and Duo, the former device was delayed out of its Holiday 2020 release window, and Windows 10X was repurposed for single-screen devices - in stark contrast to its initial 'dual-screen devices first' approach. For now, it seems that the Redmond firm is putting 10X on the backburner, focusing its resources on the expected Sun Valley UI refresh coming to Windows 10 later this year.

      Games galore


      In a rather surprising announcement, Microsoft decided to take the wraps off a sizeable selection of titles now supporting FPS Boost. More than quadrupling the number of supported games from 23 to 97, the latest additions include Dying Light, a number of LEGO games, ReCore, and more, with supported framerates from 60 to 120FPS.

      There are good news on the Game Pass front as well, with FIFA 21, Red Dead Online, Psychonauts, Outlast 2 and many others either already available or joining the subscription very soon. Additionally, folks in the U.S. also get four months of Spotify Premium with Game Pass Ultimate, though this is available for new users only.

      On the revenue share front, Microsoft dropped its cut from 30% to 12% on PC, and was planning to do the same on console, but it will no longer do so. An interesting tidbit about the company’s strategy relates to exactly why it lowered its split. As per the court documents filed in January, this is done “in exchange for the grant of streaming rights to Microsoft.”, in other words, xCloud. It’s not exactly clear whether the proposal was far enough along to even be discussed with console publishers, but for the time being, the revenue split on Xbox remains 30/70.

      If you don’t think that’s such a great deal, maybe some of the Deals with Gold will pique your interest, like the discounts for Borderlands 3, Control, PAYDAY 2: Crimewave Edition, and others.

      However, if you have no desire to buy more games and already own the latest iteration of Flight Simulator or the spin-off title Minecraft Dungeons, it’s worth checking for updates, as both first-party games have received a number of enhancements and fixes.

      Dev channel
      The latest monthly Office Insider build on the Mac has added the ‘Share to Teams’ capability in Outlook, and more. Microsoft has announced its automation tool for security testing AI systems, dubbed Counterfit. Live transcriptions will soon be added for unscheduled and channel meetings in Teams. Microsoft has announced Reading Progress for Teams for education. Whiteboard now has improved Teams integration, support for rich content like images and stickers, and more. The Redmond giant has detailed more education features coming through August. Excel on the web now supports Power BI-connected PivotTables. Microsoft has delivered oxygen, ventilators, and more to support India’s COVID-19 response. New customization options are now available for Reply-all Storm Protection in Microsoft 365. Microsoft customers in the EU will be able to store all their data in the region by 2022. The Redmond firm has warned of a widespread gift card scam targeting organizations. Logging off
      We end the week with a refreshed Azure logo, an interesting Defender bug, and some Surface firmware updates.



      Starting with Azure, Microsoft has decided that the logo for its cloud service needed a bit of a Fluent Design facelift, and as such unveiled a brand-new icon. Ditching the angular shape of the old logo, this one is much more reminiscent of say, the Visual Studio icon, though in some cases, it may remind folks of the Adobe or Autodesk logos.

      On the flip side, what wasn’t needed was a rather weird Microsoft Defender bug, which ended up creating “thousands” of files in users' boot drives. Some folks saw small files less than 2KB in size, while other users reported multiple GBs of storage being eaten up. A fix is already rolling out, and if you’re on Microsoft Defender engine version 1.1.18100.5, you’ll be bumped up to 1.1.18100.6 following this update.

      Finally, for owners of the Surface Pro 4, Studio, Laptop 1,2, and 4, Microsoft has released a slew of firmware updates meant to bring stability and security enhancements.

      Here is Linux Advisory Board's ruling on University of Minnesota's "hypocrite commits"
      by Usama Jawad

      A couple of weeks ago, we reported that Greg Kroah-Hartman from the Linux kernel development and maintenance team had banned submissions from the University of Minnesota (UMN) due to some questionable patches that they submitted. The issue received a lot of public attention particularly due to the email exchanges between Hartman and the student researchers being made public. The latter argued that the patches come in the form of "a new static analyzer", but Hartman took issue with the fact that the clearly incorrect patches had been submitted to the kernel without any warning.

      After much back and forth, the department heads for Computer Science at UMN stated that they would investigate the matter further, and soon after, the student researchers published an apology giving more context to their dubious efforts.

      Now, the Linux Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has published its own findings of the matter and its recommendations for the future.



      In its detailed audit, the Linux TAB has described the entire timeline of events from the time when "one member of the UMN community" began a research project in August 2020 to intentionally introduce flaws in the Linux kernel with fake identities. A research paper on this endeavor was published in November 2020 after which no patches were submitted. Questionable submissions began again in April 2021 which is when Hartman confronted the researchers and eventually banned them from contributing in the future.

      Linux TAB has concluded that the researchers broke several documented rules including submitting patches with false identities. Five of these changes were publicly admitted to being invalid by the researchers in their paper, but the TAB has noted that all incorrect changes were caught or ignored by developers and maintainers, which means that its review process works correctly.

      435 commits from the UMN were reviewed in total. A summary of findings can be seen below:

      Commits found to be correct: 349 Commits found to be incorrect and in need of fixing: 39 Commits already fixed by later commits: 25 Commits that no longer matter: 12 Commits made before the research group existed: 9 Commits the author asked to have removed: 1 In light of the above, the Linux TAB has recommended that moving forward, UMN must improve the quality of its patches. It has also indicated that it will work with researchers to document best practices for contribution to open source projects, including the Linux kernel. It has suggested that the UMN set up its own internal review team, which should consist of at least one experienced developer who validates changes before they are submitted to the kernel. The Linux TAB has cautioned that:

      The Linux TAB has emphasized that the research community and kernel developers and maintainers can work in harmony, as they have done so in the past, but the goal of the community should be to create a robust kernel for production use. If efforts like this benefit only the research community, then conflicts such as this can arise, but they can be avoided if the recommendations of the Linux TAB are followed. You can read the letter in detail here.

      Edge for Linux is now available in the Beta channel
      by João Carrasqueira



      A Linux version of Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser has long been in the works, with the Redmond company first teasing it at Build 2019 and officially announcing it later that year. However, it wasn't until October of last year that the Dev channel of the Edge Insider program debuted on Linux. Over six months later, it's now time for the Beta channel to make its way to Linux users, Microsoft announced today.

      Since its Linux debut back in October, Edge has gained some new capabilities, including the ability to sign in with a Microsoft account and enable syncing across devices. The availability of Edge Beta for Linux lines up with last week's release of Edge 91 in the Beta channel, and it includes those improvements we've seen over the past few months.

      It's been a long journey for Linux users so far, and given how long it's taken for the Beta channel to become available, there's no telling when a stable release will happen. Microsoft also doesn't offer the Canary channel of Edge - which gets updated on a daily basis at the expense of stability - for Linux. Either way, a Beta release should offer more stability than what we've had so far.

      Edge Beta for Linux is available as both a Debian/Ubuntu package and as an .rpm file for Fedora or openSUSE users. If you use the Windows Subsystem for Linux and you're a Windows Insider in the Dev channel, you can also try the Edge browser there, since Microsoft recently added support for Linux GUI apps in Windows 10.
