Game Drift Linux review

[ Thanks to Linux User & Developer magazine for this link. ]

"Game Drift treats its Ubuntu 10.10 base with subtle tweaks as opposed to sweeping changes. Compared to other game-centric distros like Ultimate Edition Gamers, which weighs in at a hefty 4GB, Game Drift is as light as a feather with the standard ISO able to comfortably fit on a standard CD. This is because instead of pre-installing a plethora of games, applications and add-ons, Game Drift is more interested in providing the means of quickly and easily installing the latest open source and Windows-based games. It does this through a strategic partnership with Crossover Games (more on this later) and by offering a web-based Game Store, a shortcut for which sits on an otherwise completely clean, black, Ubuntu 10.10 desktop."
