Duke Nukem and Linux and Tablets, Oh My!

Fabian Sanglard, who recently did a review of the Doom 3 source code, is at it again.  This time around, he takes a look at the source code for Duke Nukem 3D.  In his own words, "It turned out to be a difficult experience".

Meanwhile, Linux has released version 3.8, which includes some interesting filesystem changes for Ext4, btrfs, and F2Fs.  Full notes are available at kernelnewbies.org.

Penultimately, Ubuntu has announced "Ubuntu for Tablets", which looks... sweet.  I suspect that this will be enough to push me over the edge and into the "Eh, what the heck" realm with regard to a Linux tablet.

Finally (promise!) the Rampant Coyote has a couple of guest posts up about choosing your game engine.  Part 2 is particularly interesting, as it has a list of interesting game engines along with a quick commentary on what they did well, what they did poorly, and why the author choose or ignored them for a project.
