I wrote a post about that most exciting of subjects: top
LINUX GAMING: "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" (Definitive Edition) released!
More class A of AAA-gaming on Linux is here. It is highly recommended to purchase this from Feral Interactive's OWN store (via link below) to hand maximal support towards this quality house porting games for Linux.
Linux now has the full and complete trilogy of this Tomb Raider franchise series.

This interview with ex-CTO from Purism seems to portray that the organization is poorly managed and may not exist in a year from now: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Zlatan-Todoric-Interview #purism #opinion
Permanent Record. Snowden talks about the game Loom (1990 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loom_(video_game)) and describes it as: "a society of elders who create a secret loom that controls the world. When a young boy discovers the loom's power, he's forced into exile, and everything spirals into chaos until the world decides that a secret fate machine might not be such a great idea after all". Fiction? #loom #permanentrecord #snowden
Gotta love the reporting on Kotaku which is basically one paragraph, followed by tweets and absolutely not a minute of research. What a great harbor of journalism! https://kotaku.com/legendary-japanese-arcade-anata-no-warehouse-is-closing-1839051433
The freedom open-source software gives you may be priceless, but that doesn't mean you can't support developers nor should you take their work for granted.
Support your favorite open-source projects and their developers! Give them a chance to become self-sustainable! Lots of small contributions can make all the difference!
Do it, become part of the greater common good. It's not everyday you get to participate in a revolution! 😄
(No, I won't get tired of repeating this message. It's important)
