Nintendo Revolution Worldwide Launch – June 2006

“Following recent hints of a 2006 launch, technology and manufacturing partners have let it slip that Nintendo plans to launch the Revolution in June next year.

More surprising are plans to launch worldwide – within one month; “As of early October this year, we had agreed with all key partners that a global ship date of June 2006 was achievable” “

I knew Nintendo would launch the Revolution with a blast, but I never would have guessed that they might launch it worldwide at one time, if you think about it, that is indeed quite a task to do.

During his speech at E3 this year, Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, said that from day one it would be possible to play one or two launch titles over the internet, and that title would be Smash Brothers. Personally, this is something I really look forward to because Super Smash Bros. Melee is one of my favourite games for the GameCubes, and with the very innovative Revolution controller that Nintendo has come up with, I think that a Smash Bros. game is gonna be a blast to play! 😀

Quake 4 released for Linux

“Quake 4 has been released only two days after the WINDOWZ version! And there’s is even a wiki on installation procedures. Great job ID!”

I just love those guys at id software! 😀

If you liked Quake III, go buy Quake IV, a friend of mine says it’s good, he’s been playing it for a few days… so I’m on my way to the store to get it! 😉
Seriously, if you’re a Linux user, buy the games that are available in Linux versions and call the corporation up and say a “thank you” to them for making a Linux version. And that includes you BSD people too, because pretty much all the games available on Linux today, can run on BSD as well through the Linux binary compatibility layer.

Ubuntu/Kubuntu Linux 5.10 (Breezy Badger) Released!

After months of alpha and beta testing Ubuntu, and Kubuntu, 5.10 (Breezy Badger) has been released!!

Ubuntu 5.10 contains the very latest GNOME 2.12, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2, a very very simple “Add/Remove programs” system, and also an improved version of Xorg 6.8.2 with wider hardware support.

Kubuntu 5.10 contains the latest KDE 3.4.3, OpenOffice.org 2.0 beta 2 with KDE intergration, and a brand new KDE apt package manager called Adept. This new one replaces Kynaptic, which kind of sucked big time. I’ve been playing a little bit with the RC1 LiveCD and I’m really pleased with this new KDE package manager.

If you are looking for a nice easy to use Debian-based Linux distribution, I highly recommend you taking a look at Ubuntu (GNOME) or Kubuntu (KDE).

OSdir has made quite a few screenshots of Ubuntu 5.10 available right here: http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/slideshow.php?release=469&slide=4

Ubuntu and Kubuntu can be downloaded at either ubuntulinux.org or kubuntu.org, there are LiveCDs of both available.

The Ubuntu Team are not quite done yet, they’ll be releasing Edubuntu very very soon, it might even show up later today, which is a version of Ubuntu optimized for use in a school or for other educational purposes.
