A brief screenshot tour of the Peppermint Six desktop.

Peppermint Six is built on a long term support (LTS) code base, so as well as being customizable to your heart's content, will be "good to go" for quite some time.

A brief screenshot tour of the Peppermint Six desktop showing the menus, some new features, and some applications including Ice and some Ice-created SSBs, the Peppermint Control Center, the new Nemo file manager, the wallpaper manager, the VLC media player, and some other tools/utilities/options.

Some of these screenshots were taken with the new "Peppermix-Dark" theme applied, if you like the dark look you can apply this theme via:-
menu > Preferences > Customize Look and Feel > Widget (tab)
Choosing "Peppermix-Dark" from the list in the left-hand column, then clicking the "Apply" button.

Virt Manager desktop application for managing virtual machines.

The virt-manager application is a desktop user interface for managing virtual machines through libvirt. It primarily targets KVM VMs, but also manages Xen and LXC (linux containers).

It presents a summary view of running domains, their live performance & resource utilization statistics.

Wizards enable the creation of new domains, and configuration & adjustment of a domain’s resource allocation & virtual hardware. An embedded VNC and SPICE client viewer presents a full graphical console to the guest domain.

It presents a summary view of running domains and their live performance & resource utilization statistics. A detailed view presents graphs showing performance & utilization over time.

Dead Cyborg first person view, hard-sci-fi adventure game.

To get it running you simply extract it and run one of the four bash scripts provided depending on which suits your needs. The game ran flawlessly for me on both Linux Mint and Arch (there is a package available in the AUR).
You start the game waking up in some sort of cryogenic freezer, not knowing who you are or how you got there. As you advance you read messages left behind by your colleagues who had ventured out of their capsules some time earlier, before their deaths at various stages along the way due to radiation posioning.

Aspyr Media behind the success of Linux and SteamOS.

Aspyr Media has revealed that it is betting its future on the success of Valve’s SteamOS project, and that despite the tiny minority of machines running Linux it is already approaching a break-even point.
Aspyr’s Michael Blair has stated that his company is ‘making a long bet’ on the success of Valve’s Linux-based SteamOS and Steam Machine projects.
Founded in 1996, the Texas-based Apsyr, has carved a niche for itself porting other companies’ games to platforms including OS X, Linux and - for console-led titles - Windows.

The purpose of Freedoom project.

The Doom engine uses an "IWAD" file to store all of its game data. This contains the raw data used by the game — the artwork, sound effects, levels, everything which defines Doom as a game. Until now, one of the original proprietary files was still needed in order to play Doom.

The Freedoom project aims at collaboratively creating a free IWAD file. Combined with the free source code, this results in a complete game based on the Doom engine which is Free Software.

Doom source code + Freedoom IWAD.

The purpose of Freedoom.
 
Freedoom has multiple purposes:

1. To create a complete free game based on the Doom engine.

A large library exists of modifications which have been created for Doom over the past fifteen years; Freedoom maintains compatibility with the original IWAD files so that these modifications can be played.

Aseprite is an open source program to create animated sprites & pixel: Color.

Animations and visual effects are nowadays used to enhance nearly every form of multimedia, including video games. These are created by combining multiple images and effects, with an abundance of applications at your disposal.

Aseprite is one of them and offers a different approach on image editing and creating short animations.

Intuitive design makes it easy to use.

If you're nostalgic about the past era of pixel graphics and effects, you might just find this to be a suitable environment.

This is not only because of the application's aim to create such sprites, but the interface is fully designed this way as well. Although you get the impression of an old video game, with icons and tools being a little difficult to identify, accommodation is no problem at all.

Clever file support and drawing tools.

The result is either an enhanced picture or short animation to use in your project, but until you get there some effort needs to be invested.

Color.

Aseprite supports three different kind of color modes:

  • RGB
  • Indexed
  • Grayscale

When you create a new sprite you have to choose one of these color modes. In this section you will see the details of each one.

RGB.

RGB, or RGBA, stands for Red-Green-Blue-Alpha. Each image pixel contains these four components. It means that a pixel is completelly indepedent from others.

The alpha component specifies how much opaque the color is: Alpha = 255 means completely opaque, and Alpha = 0 completely transparent.

Special note: Background layer doesn't have an alpha component, so it will be always opaque.

Indexed.

In this mode each pixels is a number that references a palette color. Your palette can contain up to 256 colors, and each pixel points to one of those colors (from 0 to 255).

Unlike RGBA, if you modify the palette color, all pixels that are referencing that color will change their appearance.

An important concept on Indexed images is that for transparent layers, we need a special index to act as the transparent color. Generally this index is 0, but you can change it from Sprite > Properties menu.

Grayscale.

It's more like RGBA, just that you have two channels: Value and Alpha. Here 0 means black and 255 is white. The alpha channel behaves exactly like in RGBA mode.
