Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Aurelien Marchand for this link. ]

Aurelien Marchand writes in with this summary:

For all you guys playing with Unix for the last 25 years, you certainly have heard of one the best -- and toughest -- RPG (Role Playing Game) for computer made ever, namely, NetHack.

The text-oriented RPG is still being developed and ported and adapted, the latest release being 3.3.1 and can be found at nethack.org/.

Now, true, it doesn't look very pretty. So not pretty that a bunch of people have make graphical interfaces to run under your X window (Qt port of Nethack; Gnome port of Nethack). It's neat but still a bit fade, and still very much keyboard oriented... you can almost forget your mouse with those ports.

Now has come the real stuff though: Jaakko Peltonen's "Falcon's Eye Nethack." Wanna see what a great adventure games looks like with a great interface? Follow the link. Even music is supported! Now Nethack in 2d iso and music exists and it's called Falcon's Eye Nethack.
