    I really love the Phoronix picked this as a story. Phoronix is quickly becoming Linux tabloid journalism. All it is missing is the page 3 girl. That said, I wouldn't mind a page 3 girl in Phoronix. Who is with me?
    Sorry, I'm with the girl. Get your own page 3, loser!

    For now probably yes. But it was perfectly with Steam's in-home streaming. On the other hand, Valve talk about playing Civ5 on SteamOS a lot, so maybe sooner or later it will be ported.

    This is over lan from another one of your computers, but it's the same idea, and could probably be extended to remote servers in the future.
    okay, I get what they are trying to achieve with that...but I still don't like it.

    It's too soon to say that. It's only 8AM on the 22nd where I live here in the US.
