It is vacation time and this week, in our Linux Page (in Spanish), we have posted some brief suggestion about playing Poker Texas Holdem just for fun with Pokerth. This version, optimized for Linux, has a nice graphics (e.g. you can select between different table) colors and is very intuitive to play. If you prefer, you can also play with other remote players clicking on the option you find in the below left menu. We played some good (bur not lucky) test games and the overall results were really positive. Unfortunately, tonight the pokerth.net server seems to be down… we hope tomorrow we will be lucky! Interesting.
This week, in our Linux Page we have posted an effective review about GP2X: the Linux challenger against the proprietary PSP. We personally think that this new open source gaming device developed by a Korean company. The GP2X is very easy to use and in a long term perspective, it has many interesting possibilities (multimedia, MP3, etc..) if compared with PSP. When purchased with its cradle, it can easily be connected to any USB devices (as keyboards, external Hd, etc..). Moreover the open source platform can potentially offer nver ending solutions for new applications or games. At the moment the games available for this platform are not so many as the games for the PSP but we believe that in six-eight months the number of games will dramatically increase. Last but not least, the new GP2X-F200 has a crystal bright touch screen with functions. Recommended as reliable open source alternative to PSP!
Today, Frank posted in our Linux Page a brief but effective post about SuperGamer2 which is the new -revised and improved- version of SuperGamer; perhaps, one of the most interesting bootable Linux versions created for video players. This DVD Linux is full of very interesting games and its compatibility is higher than never. In fact the people from SuperGamer have updated the hardware drivers and solved some problems they discovered in the first version. Now SuperGamer (based on PCLinuxOS) can be used in more motherboards than in the past and I think they are working on a better version of this wonderful bootable DVD Linux!
