    RE: DJL.
    Well, the major advantage is that DJL is Gaming specific, and fully distro independant, while CNR/every other package manager only works on a couple of distro's if even that.. Djl also allows you to suggest your own games, ask for help on the built in irc client, organize games by genre, read linux game news with the feed reader, customize it with plugins such as server browsers and game website reading..

    Yes, I totally agree that things will change for the best, but criticism is necessary to identify what needs to change :)

    RE: The new Linux.com
    Still needs a bit of ironing, because there are /lots/ of things going on in the site, and getting through everything isn't perfectly sorted yet, but I believe that it will get there. A few remarks (just my personal opinion): Distribution news needs Distro image tags, the Download Linux tab isn't well placed. The Answers page doesn't quite make sense to me.. Nor do most of the Learn pages, come to think of it.. The information just isn't displayed effectively. Directory? Books and software downloads? Those are on different neural pathways for me.. Also, there's a lot of things that aren't explained well.. What are "applications" on my user screen? What does the different categories mean? What tone does the rating button mean on the answers? It might just be me being silly, but I know that there are lots of silly people out there :P

    DJL.
    Has anyone tried it? It's a Steam-like game manager for Linux, and you can install loads of games on it that you won't find in your package manager. It also does a bit of dependency resolving, and is distro independent. Link: [url]http://en.djl-linux.org/[/url]

    RE: Favorite game?
    At the moment I play Spring/BA/CA the most. Awesome RTS, really one of the best out there.
