    Yeah that's probably the one. Arch has always been a good distro for fast, and bloat free linux. Arch is killed by being updated too frequently sadly. You just have to miss an important update notice and an update can cause the distro to break. Which has happened a few times over the course of 12 years of using Arch. But I still think it's the best distro out there compared to the likes of ubuntu or fedora. It's a true tinkerers distro without being too harsh like linux from scratch.

    Has anyone given thought of what the destiny of FLOSS game would be, if it involves competition between players in any form and happens to become even slightly popular after release. Latter would be a worthy goal, am I correct?

    That game would be ironically dead after a few months.

    Thanks!

    That is two projects and one can read on misfit3d' webpage: "I do not currently have any sample 3D models available for download on this site". That is not encouraging for a beginner.

    I know there are more for Blender, but still, these models are scarce for beginners.

    best tool for making model animations?

    Don't forget the animations which in the best of worlds should reflect the scale of the models. Think of how different an elephant moves compared to a horse, a dog or a mouse.

    A running soldier with a rifle, a riding knight with a sword, a dragon with wings. Their fluid motion are also beyond the capacity of many people otherwise good at making static models.

    BTW, what is the best tool for making model animations for later use in the Quake 3 engines?

    At first I assumed this was spam, since how could I be playing an upcoming game? I was quite saddened because Linux has a lack of good FPS's. However, according to this forum post they are planning post release Linux/Mac clients! Not great confirmation since this is the only mention of it I can find.

    Perhaps Michael could contact them and try to get some better confirmation?
