Gamespot today covered the latest announcement from Epic Games saying that there will indeed be a new Unreal Tournament and it will work on Linux. A pioneer in Windows anti-virus software recently said it's no use, switch to Linux! And Bryan Lunduke has a list of the top 10 "nerdiest Linux gadgets."

Gamespot.com has all the latest details on the upcoming Unreal Tournament game recently teased. Then it was just little more than wishing thinking, but today it was confirmed that there will be a new Unreal Tournament built with the Unreal Engine 4 and it will indeed support Linux. But here's the kicker, Mark Rein, VP of the Unreal Tournament studio, says it will be developed "in the open. Not free to play, completely free." Epic envisions "a collaboration between Epic Games, Unreal Tournament fans, and Unreal Engine 4 developers," according to Gamespot. They plan a "marketplace" where Epic will get a cut to pay for the game.

TechWorld.com today said that "British anti-virus pioneer Dr Alan Solomon is so convinced that AV software no longer works that he gave up using it a 'long time ago' and solved his security worries by moving from Windows to Linux." Solomon said there doesn't seem to be much malware for Linux, but the anti-virus expert then continued, "I don't know why."

And finally in today's news, Bryan Lunduke has a slideshow of the "10 nerdiest Linux gadgets." He also says you can rate just how nerdy someone might be by how many of these gadgets they own. These include the Raspberry Pi, JetBox 5300, and Linksys WRT54G.
