Phoenicis PlayOnLinux 5.0 Alpha 2 Released for easy installation of Windows games and software on Linux


PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®. It essentially customises and tweaks WINE specifically for each supported game or software. So if you are struggling to get one of these supported games or applications to run, you could try PlayOnLinux. It has a more GUI based approach to managing WINE settings too.

It does add some additional complexity in that if you uninstall WINE or PlayOnLinux those applications can break. I used to have lots of trouble when restoring this data between Linux upgrades so personally, I've resorted to just using plain WINE on its own.

But the Alpha release of PlayOnLinux is a major step forward so many may want to try it out.

A tomb with cat mummies and sacred beetles found in Egypt


Seven tombs were discovered during the archaeological mission, which started in April. They included three tombs with dozens of cat mummies that can be traced back to the fifth and sixth dynasties thousands of years ago.

A glorious discovery, not bad. No matter how long you have been looking for such things, you will always find something new, even mummified cats.
