OnLive + Wine = Windows Gaming on Linux

Posted 04-04-2012 at 11:09 PM by stretchedthin

I think I posted this once on LQ in response to a question. Still desearves to be part of the blog though.

Onlive is gaming in the cloud. Designed for Windows and Mac but unintentionally, it is also a leap forward for Linux (and Mac) users who want easy access to the world of Windows PC games. Hundred's of games are available, but Wine need only run the OnLive client in order to play them all. Also worth mentioning is the upcoming client for Android tablets. Could mean a full...

Posted 04-04-2012 at 11:05 PM by stretchedthin

If you saw the last post, you already know I'm sharing some of the better older posts I've put on Youtube. These are still getting hits today.

So here is number two.

Find is an incredibly powerful command line utility for finding files and folders and much more. Just looking at the man pages for find can be intimidating, but hopefully, this tutorial will give you the introduction you need to get the most out of find.

Yoono All your social networking in one place.
