Welcome to Episode 39 of Destination Linux for 10/02/17

Correction from last week

Just to set things straight, ArchMerge is a separate project from ArchLabs with a completely separate team. There is no collaboration between ArchLabs and ArchMerge and they have a completely different vision about a distro. They each go their own way. I apologize for confusing the two together.


Ubuntu Is Dropping 32-bit Desktop Images

Last year OMGubuntu ran a poll asking how which version of Ubuntu you use: 32-bit or 64-bit. The results of that poll revealed that 92% run Ubuntu 64-bit already.

What have I been playing:

This week has been full of Half Life 2 gameplay. It’s a relic that’s sat in my Summer Sale games archive for a while and considered by many to be one of the best games ever created by Valve. I’ve finally broken it out and starting to play through the story. It runs beautifully on Linux and so far find the very hurried pace and a solid story to be incredibly engaging. The fact that I am playing this means Half-Life 3 is confirmed!

Half-Life: C.A.G.E.D. from former Valve worker should hopefully come to Linux

Might be worth letting them know in the post if you’re interested.
