who else here almost choked on their dinner when reading that?
People are giving up their time and profit margins to make free open-source software for everyone else.
A program is free software if the program's users have the four essential freedoms:
The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
A program is free software if users have all of these freedoms. Thus, you should be free to redistribute copies, either with or without modifications, either gratis or charging a fee for distribution, to anyone anywhere. Being free to do these things means (among other things) that you do not have to ask or pay for permission to do so.
07/03/2012 07:27 AMPosted by ElizabethMy biggest call on BS for Blizzard is that the game does not run native in Linux, and they don't support Linux or Wine, so how can they accurately detect something they have no conditions for?
They said it was unsupported as a platform. They never said Warden wasn't coded to detect it and know it's allowed.
They do not cite what they saw because that assists bot developers to make their bots more undetectable. Do you want more bots?
In my limited experience, I understand that Linux operating system is a more powerfull system allowing its users to free access to certain bits of information.
If it has been determined that Linux/Unix is a hotbed for hackers/exploiters, then I say ban everyone using it. You are taking the risk when you buy the game for an unsupported OS and "try to make it work".
Won't believe what the developers say.
Won't believe what a CM says.
Definitely won't believe ANYTHING an MVP says EVER.
What will people believe?
That's because you spew assumptions as the truth. When evidence is given to you, you ignore it.
Sure enough, Uninstalling all the Catalyst drivers and just going with the Microsoft's Win7 included ATi driver 2010.0625. Diablo 3 plays fine. Yup, Not a dang thing wrong now.
However I can't do any productivity work anymore because without the 'latest' drivers installed I can't run MATLAB, or other engineering software installed because I can't process some of the tasks without latest video drivers. (efficiency)

I don't think the virtual display will run the game very well. I'm not even sure the game will even support it.
