Steam For Linux Is Now an Open Beta

jpenguin Good new (353 comments)

But not many games available yet. Most of my steam games are from humble indie bundles, hence have linux versions. Only a few of those games have made their linux versions available through steam. BTW-- steam runs well on my Kubuntu 12.10 x8-86_64. I have a GTX 650 TI

Mozilla Considers H264 After WebM Fails To Gain Traction

jpenguin Superior formats (182 comments)

Vorbis is an excellent audio codec. VP8 isn't as good as h.264, but it does the job for low res vids I use xVid for alot of my higher RES vids. H.264 also has tons of hardware support, VP8 could possibly match h.264 with that kinda support.

Facebook To Make Facebook Credits Mandatory For Games

jpenguin Re:So what does that mean.... (116 comments)

AFAIK, Nothing. All this means is you can't use a credit card or paypal to buy virtual currency... AFAIK, you will still be able to use credit cards to buy facebook credits, and use the credits to buy virtual currency. I don't think this will affect users.
