Time being what it is - relentlessly moving forward - Linux has had a bad rap in the past when it comes to game play. If you consider that most all of the popular game set top boxes run on one form of Unix or the other - this perception is not deserved. In this article I'm going to give you a condensed review and comparison of 16 Linux games that you should give some serious considerations if you like games and gaming. In order to make this list the game had to rate at least a 7.5 out of 10, it had to be free and each game had to be readily available for download and installation in any Peach OSI distro offering. Each of the 16 games are available from either the Gnome Software Center or the Ubuntu Software Center. (Icon links to both of these software centers are available on the bottom dock of every Peach OSI distro.) In most cases you will have better gameplay with the following games if you install a 64bit version of Peach OSI (suggested Peach distros are: - "Barebones" or "The Works"). Please note that we have made links to video for each of the included 16 Linux games and we have included those videos on one single page. Convention says that placing 16 video links with the graphics thereof on one page is not the best way to create an efficient web page and the next page to our Linux game review may load slowly because of the video pre-loading into the page. But more importantly, I believe that this is a small trade-off in order to keep the continuity and importance of the page. Once the following page loads you will be able to watch an onscreen video of each of the actual 16 games complete with sound so that you can best get a feel for the game. Personally I cannot think of a better way to review a game. Somehow just placing a screen shot of each game did not give a true depiction of the game being reviewed. In order to view each video simply click on the video. Please note that you can also watch each video in full screen mode. There are hundreds - if not thousands - of more Linux compatible games available in the Software Centers available inside Peach OSI. Feel free to comment and add your own favorite Linux games at the bottom of the page. Click "Read More" below to load the entire article.
Peach OSI will automatically setup more different WiFi cards and devices than most other operating systems combined.
After installing Peach OSI in any version if your WiFi is not working let's look at the possible reasons why. First things first. Did you check the little box at the beginning of the installation of Peach OSI to allow for Peach to connect to your WiFi during the installation process?

Around 2006 I switched from Linux and Windows to a Mac as my primary computer and operating system. I paid for my expensive first MacBook with my own hard earned dollars. This was shortly after Apple switched to the Intel platform and it was the perfect combination of a great computer built around a Unix like operating system. For those who are not aware of it, Apple's famed OSX is a fork in a Unix system as is Android, Linux and many of the other myriad of Unix-like branches. For 4 years I begrudgingly got more and more locked into Apple's ecosystem. Apple - once the technically superior and arguably cooler option during the days when Steve Jobs was in control - has slowly become nothing more than a business model comprised of corporate plans to ensure the locking in of their uses and various other nefarious practices that I - as a developer - am not at all super comfortable with. Microsoft's business model isn't any better considering that if you want to always run their latest and greatest you will have to shell out the bucks every few years for a new rig even if your current rig runs just great with the older version of Windows. Like Apple, Microsoft seems to have little to no conscience in getting their massive user base to go all in for one OS presentation of Windows after another and then slowly but surely phase out their previous "grand" releases. I realize that times change and so does the computer hardware that we use - I just question why any of us agree to be apart of this well planned corporate treadmill which is not only financially debilitating but also absolutely unnecessary.
