Torchlight 2 is a hack and slash isometric role-playing game developed and published in 2012 by Runic Games. It is the sequel to Torchlight video game released in 2010. It follows the story of the original title and focuses on the Alchemist – a playable character from the previous game – which now plays the role of the main antagonist led by the corrupting power of the ancient dragon, Ordrak. The game is available on Windows, Linux, OS X, and Xbox 360 with further plans from Panic Button to release the title on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.Story and CharactersTorchlight II story takes place some time after events from the first game. The ancient dragon Ordrak, who was corrupting the mysterious Ember ore and people who went into contact with it, was defeated. The source of Ordrak’s power, however, was stolen by the Alchemist, who apparently wasn’t cured of the Ember Blight. The Alchemist suspects he may not be the only one suffering from the curse, and thus plans to combine dragon’s heart with the power of the elemental guardians to destroy all the Ember and finally free himself and the others from the Ember Blight. There is one catch – elemental guardians are the key to the balance in the world, and harming the guardians may have terrible consequences. This is where the player comes in – he needs to stop the Alchemist and protect the guardians.Gameplay and game modesTorchlight 2 features addictive and dynamic gameplay consisting of traveling through large open areas full of enemy monsters of all kinds. This is a significant difference in comparison to Torchlight, where the whole action took place in the mines deep below the town.The player chooses his character from one of the 4 playable classes, each with 3 different skill trees, and develops it by completing a multitude of quests and by slashing through hordes of enemies. He can also choose his companion pet who will fight alongside his character, and also could be used to send to town to sell unwanted loot and buy potions or other basic items, so the character doesn’t have to run to town himself and can keep hunting.The game can be played even after finishing the main story, thanks to the New Game Plus system. The player can start the journey all over again, retaining his character, gold, and items, but with stronger monsters awaiting to be challenged and more powerful loot to be found.There is also a long-awaited cross-platform multiplayer co-op which allows to enjoy the game together with friends regardless of the platform they’re playing on.ReceptionTorchlight II (PC)is a very good game, according to both critics’ and players’ reviews, with over 1 million copies sold in 2012. The title is generally seen by many as an upgrade to Torchlight in almost every way, taking the things that worked in the previous game, upgrading and polishing them, while adding some new mechanics to the mix.According to gaming critics, the game does not bring much innovations to the genre – it implements the solutions widely known to RPG and hack and slash fans, but it does it incredibly well. The games’ numerous random encounters, tons of unique abilities, low price, low system requirements, and the introduction of a long-awaited multiplayer mode were also mentioned as its strengths.
Would you like to master the Linux operating system but you don't know where to start?Linux is an operating system, which is pretty much different from any other one.Advantages of using Linux:Free to useOpen source - Anyone capable of coding can contribute, modify, enhance, and distribute the code to anyone and for any purpose.Security - Linux is more secure in comparison to other operating systems such as Windows.Revive older computers - Linux helps you to use or utilize your old and outdated computer systems.Software updates - The software updates are much faster and easier to run than updates in any other operating system.Customization - You can customize any feature, add or delete any element according to your need as it is an open-source operating system.Distributions - There are many distributions available that can provide various choices or flavors to the users: Fedora, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Debian, Linux Mint, and many more.Community support - There are a lot of dedicated programmers there to help you out whenever and wherever possible.Stability - Linux system rarely slows down or freezes, and you don't need to reboot your system after installing or uninstalling an application or updating your software.Performance - Linux provides high performance on various networks and workstations.Privacy - Linux ensures the privacy of the user’s data as it never collects much data from the user.And many more!Here is a preview of what you will learn:How to get started with LinuxThe architecture of LinuxInstallationLinux distributions, what they are, and how to use themThe most common basic Linux commandsManipulating files and directoriesAdvanced working with filesOverview of processesThe Linux processesAnd much more!By the end of 1.

In this multi-case study, open-source software localization methods and techniques were explored. The study included a comparison of two independent population groups. The mixture of participants facilitated exploration of attitudes towards specific software localization methods and the use of Linux. Interviews were conducted and responses were coded. The results were then compared using a cross case analysis technique. The study revealed that localization models, the political environment, software usability, and Linux popularity, were the four predominant themes that significantly affected the acceptance of Kashubian Linux. Business leaders contemplating penetration of markets in which minor languages are spoken may be able to broaden market exposure by offering products and services that integrate minor languages into the structural framework of e-commerce. However, barriers to acceptance identified in this study may hinder these efforts.
The Network Boot Software project is to achieve a client system with minimum memory resources by booting from a server over network. The client system is using server resources to store its Operating System image file. The TFTP(Trivial File Transfer Protocol) protocol helps to download Linux kernel image in to the client system memory (RAM). The client mounts its root filesystem on server via NFS(Network File System) protocol.The literature study is carried out to figure out suitable method to implement Network booting on EM-X270 board. The primary emphasis was to identify right boot methodology which is also suitable for EM-X270 board architecture. The comparison study between different boot loader methodologies have revealed that U-boot (Universal bootloader) is better in terms of configuration and networking features. The Linux Kernel version 2.6.23 has been selected and configured for EM-X270 board.
In theory everyone knows that some amount of non-functional maintenance is needed in software development, in addition to just adding/modifying features and correcting errors. In practice very few do any systematic effort on this. This book examines a project devoted to doing just that, the Linux Kernel Janitor Project, which performs maintenance of the source code of the Linux kernel. The objective of the study was to describe the inside of and the impact of the work done by the Linux Kernel Janitor Project. An objective was also to describe and discuss how such janitor activity can be useful in the general case. The patches produced by the janitors were analyzed and some of the effects and properties of the work done was described. Analysis showed that janitor activity reduces the amount of code while still keeping the same functionality or improving it. Some of the participants of the Linux Kernel Janitor Project were interviewed. Comparison with other open source projects that also had some janitor activity was performed.
