After one week in my town - Gabrovo, Bulgaria for second row year, we organise conference about linux, free and open source software, called openfest. There I'll talk about Slackware - why it's different and most-unix-like. The last year there were people from everywhere of the coutry.

Few months back, I posted a blog post concerning Steam and Linux.

Now with the Closed Steam for Mac beta underway, people have noticed that in the same script that launches Steam in OSX has Linux entries.
