GOG.com Announces Linux Support
Look, this isn't exactly the bare files, but I think it's as good as it's going to get without their intervention:

Let's put it another way. Since it's a club for people with similar intrinsic characteristics, how would you call a party for only white people?

The Next Unreal Tournament: Totally Free, Developed By Public
Consider that there are few games for Linux and there were even fewer at that time. It probably is a bit of a hyperbole (and I don't think there is any problem with that), but I can see how someone would have their heart broken over that. Maybe they use only Linux normally, so it means they cannot even play?
Programming Language Diversity On the Rise
No flamewar here. In this discussing a VIm cultist can agree with an Emacs brother. Better a good editor, than an IDE per language. I lose productivity when I try to use Eclipse simply because it doesn't have the same tools I already know from VIm, and it is not worth to me to learn it deeply, as I usually work combining different languages.

Apple's Spotty Record of Giving Back To the Tech Industry
Parent has a certain point. Apple has no real obligation to pay. If one really wants a return, they should either charge for it, or maybe use a license that includes a return, e.g. GPLv2 with return of code. Unfortunately GPLv3 scared most serious users, Apple included.

Toward Better Programming
I don't know him, but I use usually git while colleagues would rather use mercurial, bazaar or fossil. Basically, any distributed version control system. I prefer git because it has more features and I want to learn how to best use them. Before that I used fossil because it was simple and all data was stored in a single file (SQLite database), but some small annoyances and bug drove me off. Bazaar I used a bit after inheriting a project, but it lacked features to me, mostly easy branching. Mercurial I have never used.
Bugamn hasn't submitted any stories.
