LimeWire Settles Copyright Infringement Case

Numbstruck Re:Why not sue everyone else? (47 comments)

Never having to worry about starvation ever again outweighs the loss of jobs, at least in my mind.

Taking this a step further, let's say we can freely copy housing as well. There goes my number 1 and number 3 largest monthly expenses: shelter and food. Take those expenses away, and I almost don't need a job anymore. That doesn't sound so bad to me...

Artist Photoshops Scenes From WWII Into Present Day

Numbstruck Re:Good start (150 comments)

In my opinion, keeping the photos in their original black & white, or color format would be more than adequate for the juxtaposition. I don't think anything would have been lost in the process of blending the photos in a more seamless manner. This is an absolutely amazing idea! However, I think it was published before it's full potential was realized.

Is Free Really the Future of Gaming?

Numbstruck Re:Free and Open Source? (230 comments)

City of Heroes/City of Villains has "global" friends which uses your account name (which has to be unique) as the handle to all your characters on any of the servers. This was one of the first things I missed when I started playing WoW.

Hitachi Fined $31 Million For LCD Price Fixing

Numbstruck Re:Not Smart (135 comments)

And if that quick and easy fine were to, say, threaten the corporation's livelihood, perhaps a little more thought might be put into the way the business is run?

Blizzard Answers Your Questions, From Blizzcon

Numbstruck Feedback about support for Linux (402 comments)

Bob Colayco from Blizzard just contacted us to mention that if users wish to leave feedback about open sourcing games, support for Linux, or anything else you would like to express to them, you should do so in the comments section of this story. They plan on perusing the comments below for user feedback and interest, so don't be shy.

Support for Linux, either native or at the very least through testing/working with WINE, is something that I would really like to see. I've played WoW through WINE and managed to get it running, but the overall game play experience is just not on par with that of playing through Windows.
