Linux version?

...and here we talk about reviews, gameplay, cool ideas for Anomaly Warzone Earth and stuff like that. And it's for PC and Mac computer users too.

Linux version?

Postby Oli » Fri Apr 08, 2011 4:32 pm

I won't labour the topic other than to say there are hundreds of thousands of Linux users, some of which would really like to play Anomaly. We're not all hippies and we do buy games when we can. You've already done 90% of the work needed by using existing cross-platform tools.

Have you considered releasing a Linux version?

I would LOVE to see a Linux version of this game. As it stands there aren't many great games for linux - porting this would not only bring a huge untapped market, but would make me quite ecstatic!

I'd like to register another vote on this. After I completed the humble bundle games, I've been spelunking about looking for something else to fit the bill, this looks like the ticket. I'm a Linux user and would love to see a port of this as well.

Quick quiz: How do you know which version of Linux you are using? Which kernel? Which distribution? Which release of your distribution?

Believe it or not, there are situations where this information could be of great importance. Say, for example, a new threat has been released (such as a rather serious OpenSSL-related security issue) which only affects specific releases. If the flaw only affects specific distributions, distribution releases, kernels, or packages you need to be able to quickly gather information about the distro you’re running, and act.

Outside of that very crucial example, there are other reasons why you will want to know about Linux releases—even release types—in order to better navigate the world of Linux and all the power that comes with the platform.

Before we get into how to discern the various bits of information on your desktops and servers, I want to discuss the two major types of Linux releases.

Rolling versus fixed release
There are, effectively, two types of releases in the world of Linux:
- Rolling
- Fixed.
The two different releases are quite different, so it is important to understand how they work. The easiest way to know the difference between a Rolling and Fixed released distribution is this:

A Rolling release is constantly being updated and works with one code branch.

There are two ways of dealing with this constant state of updating. The first, and most popular, is to release a steady stream of very small updates. With this release model, the distribution is in a perpetual state of having the most up-to-date software. The second method (one which Ubuntu Core is adopting) is to replace the full image of the operating system with a new one as it is made available. Clearly, the latter option is only viable for cloud deployments (as replacing a full image is really just a distribution upgrade or reinstallation).

The Fixed release is fairly standard. You install a release and, as long as said release is supported, security and patch updates to packages will be available to you as they are seeded to the distribution repositories. You may not see updates daily (or even weekly), but they will eventually appear as available to your desktop or server. The upside of the Fixed release is stability. For many, the major downfall of the Fixed release is the need to completely reinstall (or trust that a major upgrade will not have issues on a production machine) based on a distribution’s release schedule (such as Ubuntu’s six-month schedule).

Each release type has its pros and cons. For example, the Rolling release offers you a platform that almost always has the most up-to-date version of the software you use, but due to that bleeding edge nature, may suffer instability at times. The Fixed release most often will include software that is less than bleeding edge, but it may often enjoy a bit more stability.

For a full list of Rolling release Linux distributions, check out this Wiki page.

With that information out of the way, how do you “uncover” the necessary information about your particular Linux distribution? There are a few tools at your fingertips. Let’s use them.

It is also important to make mention of a particular release structure given to Ubuntu and its supported flavors (Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, etc). Every two major releases (i.e. 12.04, 14.04, 16.04, etc.) an Ubuntu release is considered Long Term Support. This means support for the release will extend for five years (on both desktops and servers). On standard, non-LTS releases, support is only valid for six months. An LTS release is Enterprise-focused, compatible with new hardware, and more thoroughly tested than non-LTS releases. With that said, if you want a more cutting-edge Ubuntu distribution, go with the non-LTS release. If you want stability and support, install only the LTS releases.
