0

Welcome to this weeks version of WOW weekly where I bring you all of my favourite picks of the week as well as my round-up design and development resources. This week we will be discussing all things Linux with news on Valve announcing the future release of SteamOS.

Steam OS

The guys over at Steam have been busy over the last year first bringing us Steam for Linux and now they have announced that they are going to release SteamOS which aims to bring your games to your living room TV with all the current features plus sharing on your home network, easier switching of users and saving all of your game data in the cloud so that they can be run on any machine. SteamOS Steam will be made free to download and install on your computer but they are also planning to release their own Steam machines. There is certainly going to be exciting times for gamers and Linux enthusiasts alike. Steam have also announced that they are going to bring out a Steam Controller to work with all the games. Playing Football Manager with a controller would feel strange!

Gnome 3.10 Released

Gnome 3.10 has been released this week bringing lots of UI changes, including a new system menu which groups Bluetooth, WiFi and volume applets together to save space. Gnome has introduced its own software store where you can search, install and remove apps. Another new app in this release is Maps which uses OpenStreetMap to find, favourite and see your current locations.
