Getting Past "Ready For the Desktop"

essence Decade of Linux on the Desktop (578 comments)

I like to think of 2005 to 2015 as the decade of Linux on the desktop. It's really only the last few years that linux has become usable by grandma, so long as grandma has the right hardware. I'm hopeful that the next 7 years will see much improvement for linux. By 2015, Linux will be on par with/ superior to other OS's on the desktop.

Australia bans Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back

essence essence writes  |  more than 6 years ago

essence (812715) writes "The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Office of Film and Literature Classification has refused classification of Soldier of Fortune: Pay Back for being too violent.

"..the OFLC said frequent high impact violence made the game unsuitable for those aged under 18 years."
"Successfully shooting an opponent results in the depiction of blood spray," the board said.
"When the enemy is shot from close range, the blood spray is substantial, especially when a high-caliber weapon is used, and blood splatters onto the ground and walls in the environment.""
