Utopic Unicorn Alpha 1 Available for Ubuntu Flavors

As stated in the Utopic Release Schedule, Thursday, June 26 was the date for Alpha 1 releases for Utopic opt-in flavors.  This alpha features images for Kubuntu, Lubuntu Ubuntu GNOME, UbuntuKylin and the Ubuntu Cloud images.  The Alpha 2 and Beta 1 are also for opt-in flavors only.  The first Ubuntu 14.10 will be the final Beta, on September 25.

As always, pre-releases are not encouraged for anyone who needs a stable system.  When it comes to alphas, breakage happens.  😉


Sid Meier’s Civilization V Now Available on Linux

OMG!Ubuntu! has posted an article with incredible news.  It had already been announced that Sid Meier’s Civlization: Beyond Earth would support Linux at launch.  Today’s news is excellent for the Linux community.

Up until now, the only way to play Civ V on Linux was to use Wine.  This had problems, including that Civ V’s startup movie could not run via Wine.  Now, the game is available on Steam – for Steam OS and Linux.

I cannot praise the Civilization series enough.  The game lets you choose from a range of world leaders who give you a choice between a domination, scientific, cultural, democratic or time-based victory.
