Adobe (Temporarily?) Kills 64-Bit Flash For Linux

VulpesFoxnik Re:Flash Sucks (272 comments)

Debian lacks the 32bit libraries to make flash 32bit in nspwrapper to work. We are forced if we use 64 bit to used 64bit flash... now that thats gone... I guess I'll be installing gnash.

Texas Schools Board Rewriting US History

VulpesFoxnik Re:1984 (1238 comments)

I don't know about the rest of my state, but there is a large amount of Texans I know that are also upset over this. He's already been voting out, but it's too late. He's still in office till his term ends, which is enough to allow him enough time to do it.

ArenaNet's MMO Design Manifesto

VulpesFoxnik Re:Still doesn't work (178 comments)

Unlike WoW, Guildwars has quite a bit of customization for your character. I've spent hours tweaking my character to my liking. The only time I've spent more time in the customization screen is in Oblivion.

Serious New Java Flaw Affects All Browsers

VulpesFoxnik Re:All browsers? (164 comments)

I have to use Java Applets for my online college, but that's about it. A few online games still use Java over Flash (thank god). They are getting rarer, I must agree. I don't think it is because java is bad. It's just that the market Java was targeted to is more diluted with other 'easier' solutions like flash.

Multicore Requires OS Rework, Windows Expert Says

VulpesFoxnik Re:This is new?! (631 comments)

I think it's more of a architecture problem. The x86 is a horrible creature, which has an inefficient language. What x86 does in a huge set of instructions, Arm can often do in 2/3 that many. All Mhz does is eat more power and generate more heat. The answer is smarter digital languages.

Myst Online: Uru Live Returns As Free-To-Play

VulpesFoxnik Linux Port (58 comments)

The game is mostly written in python. Going to love to see the code...

I can only hope there is effort put forth to convert the game from DirectX to Opengl and have it run in a Linux environment. A while back there was also effort to make open source shard servers.
