[solved] Linux mint and flash

I was talking on another forum about switching to LM17. So other people chimed in. "Doesn't matter which distro you are using, Adobe stopped supporting Flash on nix at Flash v11. Anything newer is a 3rd party version, and they're not great." also Often not through choice--Flash is still th...

Re: Qiana is booooooriiiing

You forgot to mention it boots quickly, updates without reboots, and politely turns off when asked. Just imagine the power savings with a billion computers using Mint! :) The power savings, funny if Mint would get an energy star rating and could say this OS can save you "X" amount over th...

Re: Unity and Leadwerks game engines in Linux

I PM'd you, either way the main developer is making a LINUX release of the latest game. So I kind of see Linux MOD volunteers might come in handy and desired if more Devs start pushing more LINUX code. There are tons of members that have mod groups making MODs for most all versions anyway. They were...

Re: Steam in wine

@Booman I agree with you about it being good enough and it being very helpful as a budget card too. :D I myself am on a budget! I wish I had $500-1000 :roll: I am in the same boat. I guess serves me right asking a game developer what he thinks and if it would get a good ballpark of that site members...

Tor and mac spoofing security myths

I was reading over a few old posts how some people were looking to spoof their MAC addresses or for Wifi but I did not want to revive an old thread. I look for one of the better threads to let some of your members read this. It seems many people are worried about security and or THINK they can hide ...

Re: Unity and Leadwerks game engines in Linux

Hello everyone. So like, I am a big on development of games. I'm wondering if anyone has tried using Unity (free version) to create a Linux standalone game. I will try it later today, once I get some serious bugs in my current project ironed out. Also, has anyone here heard of or tried Leadwerks? I...

Re: Can the community welcome a new kind of user?

Here's an older article of PC sales with Linux preloaded

I am sure some vet member might have better source links.
