New Oddworld Games In Development

midkay Re:Possibly the Oddbox? (36 comments)

It was mentioned before by the Oddworld Inhabitants team that if the re-released Abe games sold well there would be an Oddbox, with additionally Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath ported to Windows.

This would be awesome. Long ago I lost my copy of Munch's Oddysee for Xbox (and stopped playing the console) and would love to have Windows versions of those games.

Windows 7 Share Grows At XP's Expense

midkay Re:Linux 20% market share (412 comments)

How?

The NetApp data: Windows: 92.52% Mac OS X: 5.12% Linux (all flavors): 1.00% Other (including iPhone, Symbian, Java ME): 1.36%

That's 7.48% "non-MS share" on these numbers (and really only non-Windows--it's not apparent whether they count Windows Mobile as "Windows" or as "Other"). Linux, therefore has 13.37% of the "non-MS market". For comparison of the other ones broken out entirely, Apple has 73.26% of that market (Mac+iPhone). Java ME has 6.1%. Symbian has 2.5%

Robotech Heading to Big Screen, Starring Toby Maguire

midkay "Toby"? (236 comments)

How did everyone miss this terrible misspelling? It's Tobey Maguire, not Toby. Come on, people.

It was spelled correctly in the summary, though...

The Large Hadron Collider — a 27km-long circular particle accelerator at the CERN experimental facility near Geneva, will smash protons into one another at unimaginable speeds trying to replicate in miniature the events of the Big Bang."
