I first began running Linux when SUSE 5.3 and Mandrake 6.1 were the latest distros. Since that time I can't count all the distributions of *nix/nux I've tried and worked with. For the last nine months, however, I've been a happy camper with my Slackware desktop.

The first thing anyone considering using Fedora needs to know is this is not a safe, sane Linux distribution. It's not meant to be. Fedora is the test bed for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and is also the replacement for Red Hat Linux, with two major differences: there is no commercial edition, and it is intended to be a community project, rather than solely a Red Hat product. This is the playground for Red Hat engineers and random volunteer developers to go nuts and try out wacky new things, and users get to play along. It has a fast release cycle of 2-3 times per year, with shiny new things in every release. So you should expect a few bumps and lumps.

If you're starting to feel like you might need a gun to take and to hold a parking place, it might be time for a stress-buster. That's where Blob Wars comes in. No, it's not a new diet. It's a free, fun, frenzied chance to gun down the bad guys and rescue fair maidens. It's also an SDL-based game which runs well on Linux. And the 1.0 release might be here before the new year.
