WineX 3.1 Released

Transgaming has released WineX 3.1, the latest version of their gaming fork of WINE. Included in this release are better installer support and support for several new games including Morrowind and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

New OSX version of Quake 3

id Software's Graeme Devine updated his .plan with word of a new OSX 10.2 version of Quake 3 available on the Id FTP site:

There's a new build of Quake3 for Mac OS X on the id ftp server. This is for 10.2 or later only. This version fixes support for certain add in audio sound cards, adds a brand new ppc QVM compiler, and "tada" adds Altivec code to aid MD3 rendering. Thanks go to Apple and especially Ken Dyke over there for making this happen.

A.T. Hun comments: He updated his .plan again with word that a new build has been uploaded due to some problems with gcc 3.1.

SCO Terminates IBM's Unix Rights

Much to no one's surprise, SCO signed their own death warrant by terminating IBM's Unix rights. Of course, this is mostly rhetoric unless they can get a court to agree with them. Hopefully, SCO's days are now numbered so we can all go back to hating Microsoft :)

In a related story, Robert X. Cringely claims that AT&T might enter the fray too, claimed some reserved rights to Unix. That'd be funny. Thanks Slashdot.

UPDATE! IBM has responded with what you might call the legal equivalent of flipping them the bird.
