    Phoronix: America's Army 3.0 "May Return" To Linux

    Back in September we talked about the possibility of America's Army returning to Linux with the 3.0 release. One of the America's Army developers mentioned that it's a possibility and there may be a way to get the client restored and updated on Linux...

    God, I want a steam client with Left4Dead native, that would be enough for me As for UT3 client, I don't know if I will even try it. I'm too tired of waiting for that :/ but AAO 3.0 could be fun.

      Steam > Rest.

        Can you explain that? Since I think you made a mistake with the sign there... it should be "Steam < Rest".

          If really all this games make it to linux in 2009, I strongly believe that Linux will grow in market shares, as many windows players could decide to switch to linux.

          There is also Serious Sam 2 that is pending since many months now. Unless there's a news that I'm not aware of about Serious Sam 2 ?

            For 1-3 games a year, I doubt it. Linux has a lot to do on usability and ease of use to get to fly, not to mention where you may have many apps to choose from to do a task in windows, in linux you all to often have 1 viable solution. if that. For example a alternative to photoshop. In other OS's you have a wide variety of options if you want to do the same tasks as what photoshop does, In linux you basically have one. When you start weeding out the incomplete. crude and abandoned apps you are all to often left with one or two choices of applications to accomplish a task in linux.

              Besides many dislike AA because it's "America" in it or "Army". Mind you that there are gamers out there with style that don't like playing YAFG ( Yet Another FPS Game ).

                Not that it takes away from your point, but depending on what you do with Photoshop, there's several alternatives: GIMP, Krita, and Digikam.

                    Krita and Digicam are more akin to being in the MS Paint class.

                        Normally I'd love another game for linux, but not this, I refuse to install a game made by the military for propaganda purposes.

                          Me neither. DoD propagandistic crap to get idiots to recruit.

                            True but nobody cares about the French and not all styles are good. Nobody takes "The French" serious anyway. I mean with those funny hats and that whiny accent... which might be cute on their women, but on the men it's just annoying. I can also see why they wouldn't want to play a FPS. The most aggressive thing I've seen them do was whine "Get back or we will point our bottoms at you while we run away."

                              I'm sorry, but this is simply not true. Both programs are extremely capable, and sport a number of advanced features, among which are fully color managed, support for RAW files, and an extensive plug-in system (kipi-plugins).

                              Krita: http://koffice.org/krita/
                              In addition, Krita (a painting / image editing program), supports a huge number of color spaces in up to 32 bits per channel (depending on the colorspace), provides realistic watercolor painting, and provides all the basics (and then some) for touching up images and creation of them. Although if you are going to be dealing with photographs mostly, Digikam is recommended instead, because it's specially built for photography.

                              Digikam: http://www.digikam.org
                              Digikam is a prosumer-level app which provides the capability to handle your photos from the camera thru to post-processing and exporting to several online photo galleries. A listing of the features can be found here: http://www.digikam.org/drupal/about/features9x
                              They include handling all major metadata tags, including makernotes, a light table for photo comparison, duplicate image finder, geotagging (including plotting on a map), a RAW converter, and a fast photo editor.
