Congress: Open-source for U.S. military

,----[ Quote ]
| If you thought you’d never see the phrase”open-source” in a federal funding
| bill, think again.

| The House’s proposed National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2009
| (H.R. 5658) includes language that calls for military services to consider
| open-source software when procuring manned or unmanned aerial vehicles,
| according to Government Computer News.

America's Army 2.7 (Overmatch) on Linux (WINE)

,----[ Quote ]
| GNU/Linux and Macintosh gamers haven't seen a new client since version
| 2.5 (after seeing no 2.4 release). America's Army 2.7 (Overmatch) was
| released last week, which became a massive update for this growing
| first person shooter. While no GNU/Linux client exists, the Windows
| version does perform fairly well within WINE. No Linux server of
| America's Army 2.7 has yet to be released by Ryan, but that still will
| likely be released in the coming days unless that has been canned as well.
|
| Using WINE v0.9.20 the game does run mediocre, at least in the tests I
| have tried thus far. The system was using a clean install of Fedora Core
| 6 Test 3 with the ATI 8.28.8 drivers and WINE (v0.9.20) was obtained
| through Fedora Extras. Below are a few notes on this process to get
| AASF: Overmatch running under Linux.
