SuperGamer, 8GB of Linux-Only Gameplay
I admit, I'm one of those people who dual-boots so I can play video games. I've tried running programs like CrossOver Games in order to feed my need for fragging, but in the end, it seems I always have to install Windows to enjoy some real gaming fun. Thankfully, I'm not the guy in charge of things worldwide, because the folks over at www.supergamer.org have created a bootable, dual-layer DVD full of native-running Linux games. Yes, I said native. Check out the impressive list of preinstalled games you'll get when you download the ISO:
- Quake Wars
- Doom 3
- Unreal Tournament
- Quake 4
- Savage 2
- Postal 2
- Enemy Territory
- Penumbra Black Plague
- Urban Terror
- Soldier of Fortune
- True Combat
- America's Army
- Drop Team
- Frets On Fire
- Chromium B.S.U.
- Mad Bomber
- BZ Flag
- Mega Mario
- Super Tux
So much for gaming being a Windows-only adventure! Based on Vector Linux, SuperGamer is ready to perform on all modern video cards without additional downloads. Just pop it in, boot it up, and frag.
This is SuperGamer's official screenshot. Notice all the game icons on the bottom of the screen.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
