Best April Fool's Jokes

Since this is April 1 (ironically, there are elections in Wisconsin today--how apropos), Ars Technica linked to the Top 100 April Fool's Day pranks of all time. Some of these are downright hysterical. After reading this, I fear for humanity.

This is much better than some of the stuff we've run in the past.

Duke3D Source Released

3D Realms has released the source code to Duke Nukem 3D under the GPL! You can get it from FileShack (free registration required) or read the readme. I wish more developers would follow their (and id's) lead and release old code so we can all learn from it. Thanks Shacknews.

In a more "April Fools" vein, 3D Realms also announced Duke Nukem Forever for the Atari 2600. Cute, guys. Just finish the #$%^ game. Of course, Linux Games is reporting that the game will be Linux-only and use a Glide renderer. Har.

JK3 Confirmed

Raven's Kenn Hoekstra and others have confirmed that Jedi Knight III is indeed in the works. What is not known is what the exact title of the game is going to be or when it will hit the stores. Dual-wielding lightsabers sound like fun to me! Hmm, maybe I'll have to cry to Mr. Hoekstra about a Linux client :)

New NVIDIA Linux Drivers

NVIDIA has released the 1.0-4349 drivers for their products in Linux. The new drivers include a slick new installer with an updating feature. It works very slick. Now they just need it to make sure your XF86Config-4 file is edited properly. These were actually easier to install than their Windows drivers.

Five Years of Mozilla

It was five years ago today that Netscape released the source to Communicator 5, which later became known as Mozilla / Netscape 6. Mozillazine has some additional links from that time. Tempus fugit.

JK3 Screenies posted some screenshots of Jedi Knight III from a German games mag. The shots look pretty sweet, showing off a female Twi'lek battling away with two lightsabers and a double (Darth Maul-style) lightsaber. Very cool. I would like to be able to play as my favorite Rastafarian Jedi, Kit Fisto.
