Also, what is so bad about Steam? Really? Every game I have purchased via Steam phones home every time I wish to play a game. None of the games I have purchased over Steam work without having Steam loaded (unless you run a Steam emulator or locate some cracked executables). I haven't purchased Darw...

Unless I'm mistaken you're going to have to edit your X configuration file in addition to installing the driver.

7-Zip handles RAR unpacking (and just about every common format), and is LGPLed.

People warez because it is free. It doesn't matter how you sell the game - if it is popular it will see a great deal of piracy.

It's rather nonsensical to use piracy as an indicator of dissatisfaction at being unable to purchase the game via a trusted source.

That's why I said the default scope. I had the flag pointed out to me in a similar conversation earlier. It's quite usable, but it's far from ISO compatible (no compiler out there is, but g++ hits the mark a little closer), which makes it miserable for compiling large OSS applications. I used to use...

There a couple significant issues with it, namely the default scope for variables declared in the initialisation section of 'for' loops.

MSVC 6.0 is horribly broken as far as C++ goes.

Try compiling under MinGW or with Microsoft's C++ compiler included with the VC++ Toolkit 2003 (CLI only available free here)

ported well to a generic engine like Steam
I'm reasonably certain that relatively little programming work is needed for a game to be distributed via Steam.

Anyone else have this problem?
Just the cost that comes with the usability of KDE. There may be a live distro out there with a lighter WM.

what software do the uplink servers run?
"rm -rf /", not "RM -RF".

*nix OSes are case sensitive, and you need to specify *what* you want to unlink.

Anyone who has read the Ultimate Uplink Guide has that much knowledge.
A number of the veterans have a good understanding of the inner workings of the game, having worked with the developer CD. This level of knowledge is not granted by reading the UUG.

Think before you post.
