I remember first playing R-Type on my cousins Sega Master System around 1991. I was blown away by how good the game was – it still holds up well.
R-Type (on the Amiga) is my favourite game of all time 🙂
Peppermint OS is probably my favorite Ubuntu derivative. I love how they’ve combined the best bits from a selection of DEs.
I find it incredibly ironic that Google ditches Huawei. So their spying is somehow fine eh?
@Wimpy You will drop Thunderbird for Evolution?
Yes, already done in Ubuntu MATE 19.10.
Hmm. I’ve mixed feelings on that. I like that there’s integration with the MATE calendar but also love Thunderbird.
BTW – On http://ubuntupodcast.org/2019/05/16/s12e06-international-karate, I left a comment about snaps showing in MATE System Monitor — is this still the case on 19.10?
Hi Mark. Yep. Classy game alright. It has ported to many platforms very well – even the ZX Spectrum version was decent. 🙂
