Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

"Porting" it to anything would involve not only extracting and repacking the asset archives, but also rewriting the scripts into another format (e.g. from nps to nscripter). There are (illegal) ports to systems like the PSP, and I now know that they were made by doing exactly that. (EDIT: Well, they're probably based on the unofficial and imperfect Russian ponscripter port, which was made by doing exactly that).
Good thing everything except the opening movie (which just shows the company logo) works perfectly in Wine.
Who has ever used the game gbrainy? and was really beneficial. How smart and sharp can you recall your memory after playing with "Gbrainy"?
cout<<"I really wanna know if it's really gonna benefit me a whole lot\t Thanks".
*DEFINITELY* World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. I know it's getting on in years but I've been playing since BC and plan on playing till (if they ever do) they take it offline
WoW Runs fine on OS X (along with every blizz game) and there are plenty of ways to get them running on linux, have you tried like crossover etc?
I want to see, mostly, emulators come over.. PCSX2 would be the biggest one since dolphin already runs on everything, nintendo is pretty much covered.. and todays non PC games suck anyway
Borderlands, borderlands 2 (not out yet)
GW2 if it is any good
I'm wondering, how hard is porting, does it require a lot of CPU time? or is it a lot of human time..
I know there are a good amount of open source game companies coming out and about now, which is really cool
Only game I'd love to see a native linux implementation of will never happen, but it's Star Wars Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. Only game I still keep around and play with all the mods that are out there for it keeping it a lot of fun.
For Star Wars Gamers out there:
A lot of star wars games are being used as ploys for dangerous web and ad sites. They say you need to complete a survey to get the game, but most survey sites are dangerous. However, in some of the more badly designed sites the links for the game download are in the page source. You can use this to get awesome SW games, but discretion is advised.
I advise checkout the excellent Super-gamer and linuxgamers-live issues of live-DVD gaming systems:
just boot & play, the bigger one (Supreme SuperGamerDual layer DVD) has most internet based multiplayers "on board", while the smaller (Linux-gamers-live) DVD puts the more usual games found amongst most distros in focus.
useful URLs: live.linux-gamers supergamer
Maybe some of us are waiting for games already there
