June 1, 2013 the Dutch Linux User Group (NLLGG) held its last meeting of the season, in Utrecht. Linux Magazine arranged lectures about games and organised competitive gaming tournaments. The NLLGG gave a VIM workshop and a lecture about Puppet.
RootGamer was invited to talk about future and current developments around Linux gaming.
The Dutch Linux Magazine covered the event in its previous issue. Here is the translated clipping:
Rootgamer.com brought us up to speed about the commercial games coming to Linux nowadays. Obviously Desura and Steam were covered. Derk didn’t shy away from more technical topics like frame rates (with benchmarks).
He showed that some games on Windows and Linux perform almost the same, while other games on Windows(DirectX) still have better results. According to RootGamer it won’t take a lot of improvement to Linux before hardcore Windows gamers make the switch.
Better performance with the same hardware is a serious advantage. With Linux the user has more control over resource consuming processes like; the desktop, background tasks, redundant services etc – features Windows users can only dream of.
