Portal, Steam and OS X: A Mini Review

Posted 05-12-2010 at 10:13 PM by Seph64 (Seph64's Lair)

System Setup
Mac Mini
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.26 GHZ

The next day.....

Steam for OS X has arrived (with Portal being the only Source game available atm). And still no official word from Valve concerning a possible Linux port of Steam and Source.

However, that does not stop phoronix and other online news sites from reporting that Valve has confirmed a Linux client (without a source).

Q1. Do you know the difference between your arse and a hole in the ground?
If you can wear it as a hat, it's your arse.
Q2 What's the difference between shit and shinola?
If it didn't come out of your hat, it's shinola.
Q3 Do I shit or go blind?
You need to take off your hat or you will go blind.

Until developers of programs, such as Vuze and TeamSpeak, improve the ease of installing and updating their own programs, Linux will never rule the computing world or the hearts of its users.

Also, the cryptic, snide replies from smartasses who think they are helping people who are struggling with Linux needs to stop, too. I'm not talking about anyone here, but when I do a web search and read through some of those comments, I just have to shake my head. (I am glad to have a forum...
