    I'm kind of dubious - I remember the Debian Games team from a bit ago, and I don't think they accomplished much since.

    Birds of a feather - in this context it is an informal discussion group.

    Breath of Fire (Japanese: Ryuu no Senshi, roughly "Dragon Soldier"), which is among the iconic JRPG franchises of the 1990s.

    Obviously.

    No way could I possibly be misinterpreting that, since it came from a highly gaming-conscious group.

    Bastard Operator from ... hell?


    What do they want to achieve? For gaming Linux needs drivers, drivers, drivers that fully bring your hardware to shine. And it needs games, games, games. Also from commercial vendors. Supertux and stuff is nice and fine, but it lacks the big games, though there might be some shooters. But what of that can they achieve? And how?
