    At the Ubuntu Developer Summit later this month in Copenhagen, a number of gaming-related development sessions are scheduled as Ubuntu developers try to push their Linux distribution as a first-rate gaming platform...

      yeah, and also network latency, could be a killer feature.

        Process clean-up actions seems important. I was left with a 640x480 screen several times in the past when something goes wrong or even when exiting a game normally.

          That's funny - they almost verbatim reiterate a list of main linux problems ;-)

            Well it's good that (due to Valve, Humble-Bundle, and Unity) something's finally being done about it.

              What ?

              They're begining to try to solve these problems 7 years after launching ubuntu... okay, I'll begin to pay for ubuntu in 7 years too.

                Are you sure it wasn't for spamming?

                  Well those are killer feature for me. I just hope their improvements are not meant for Unity only; KDE/Kubuntu also get the resolution reset feature.

                    If they really make work on these points (especially on Unity), gaming or no, I think it'll be great.

                      so theres hardly gonna be wayland adoption due to focus on integration of binary drivers in the next few releases...
                      I like that they take the issue seriously and that they dont want to dissappoint valves trust, though.
                      i guess browsing through bug reports and listening to the forums and irc will have to get a much higher priority.
                      I must say that i very much doubt that they will get their hands dirty on low level work.

                        Admirable goals, but good luck implementing them (especially, the library compatibility) without stagnating or forking so far from other Linux distros as to be a total outsider.

                          When multiarch is so important then i really think that steam is still 32 bit just like it was in august. That's really boring...

                            They said they're targeting 32-bit Ubuntu for the external beta... so you're probably right.

                              that's what happens when you use an operating system to run a lamp stack all the time.
