The agony and ecstasy of SteamOS: WHERE ARE MY GAMES?

Noel Bourke

Re: still early days

I don't know what he did here. I have the same BRIX platform running SteamOS and I have no graphics issues.

And out of my steam library of nearly 800 games more than 300 run natively on SteamOS. I'm currently play Metro: Last Light.

In my particular setup SteamOS makes a lot of sense. I have a beast of a gaming PC (i7 4970K, 2 X 780 Ti) in a rackmount chassis in the server room. Whatever isn't ported yet (and thats less and less everyday) I can stream at 4K!

NEW Raspberry Pi B+, NOW with - count them - FOUR USB ports

Re: hmm

I don't think I've ever seen anyone using a full size SD with a raspberry pi. Almost everyone uses a microSD in an adapter. Often people want the flexibility to re-use the card from an old phone/tablet or microSD is more easily available.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a DevGru.

...it's like a grue only tier 2!

Dell slides out svelte, DVD-less notebook

Linux

when was the last time you used a DVD/CD drive?

2005...i think

I replaced the Optical Drive in every laptop I've owned since then with a secondary battery.

I'm sick of people insisting that they NEED an optical drive.

What the hell?

1 minute 14 seconds, Jesus that's an awful boot time.

I use an OCZ Apex running Ubuntu Jaunty with a custom kernel.

My boot time recorded by bootchart is 8.4 seconds.

Maybe another 2 seconds for X & Gnome Startup and that's it.

No more disk light. Desktop fully usable.

And I use around 10% of my 60GB drive for the OS & Apps.

Only exception with the apps is the 8GB taken up by

Call of Duty 4 and Visio... The only two windows apps I still use.
