LSB is not a "standard" in common sense. It is a list of "stuff" in predictable places, nearly only usable for closed source (blob) applications. Open software does not need it.
Okay to defend D3 a bit, it was actually a pretty fun and decent game. For like a day or two. The problem with it was mostly it's focus on item farming instead of content. Yeah D2 was leagues better, I know.
Maybe this is going to be the year of the penguin, with android as dominant is it is, and games coming to Linux in general.... Well I guess I can be optimistic.
WTF is with the weird let the Ubuntu bashing begin comments? Yeah it's going to catch flack stop being a doofus.
The problem I have with Ubuntu being the epicenter is it's use of sudo. Some of us don't use this for security reasons.
Shut up and take my money... :o
I am a huge Starcraft fan. Actually I keep my windows partition only for Starcfraft 2.
This is a huge opportunity for Canonical. I hope they don't screw up now. They need to work more closely with AMD and NVIDIA. Driver installation must become a seamless process, ideally they should work right out of the box. For example 3 months after Ubuntu 12.10 AMD still has only beta drivers. This should not happen anymore, either work with AMD to have stable drivers on release or use a slightly older but more compatible x.org version. They also need to be more careful with their kernel update policy. With great power, comes great responsibility. Regressions won't be acceptable from now on.
you people are incredibly stupid.
5 pages of idiocy:
they are going to release a WOW port, it's clearly stated in the article as 'they already have a client' etc etc...
if they see adoption... I believe that only if the WOW linux client matches or surpasses OS X numbers will they bother wih porting other games
if you want to play games on linux you can only use geforces with nvidia prop driver. FUCKING PERIOD.
they release for ubuntu because the *untu ecosystem all had up, from mint to lubuntu, probably is 70%+ of linux clients
