Comment On This Article

Of the products we have been tampering with for some time now in preparation for their Linux reviews has been the Razer Krait. Some of the features for the Razer Krait include optimizations for Real Time Strategy (RTS) and Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming (MMOG). Its engine is based upon the Razer Precision Infrared technology, and various other technologies that we will be discussing in its review soon. For any developers out there working on projects like lomoco for Linux mouse control with vendor specific options, we have a few pieces of information to share today. For our Razer Copperhead information, it is posted here. If any developers are interested in working on a Linux Razer mouse project, feel free to contact Phoronix. With normal usage, we have yet to experience any Linux compatibility problems thus far.
