I have preschool aged kids who like to play games so I'm always looking around to try new ones. One game we've been playing for a while is SuperTux. SuperTux is styled after the classic Super Mario Bros games and features their classic sidescrolling action.
In place of Mario the star character is Tux, the Linux penguin mascot. There are 26 playable levels in the main game and some additional bonus levels for additional fun. SuperTux even has a level editor that you can use to create your own.
I decided to start a new series to highlight interesting Linux apps. The idea is to call out some fun and useful apps that some of you might like as well. Enjoy.
LiVES Video Editing System is the first up. The Linux Journal posted an article about it last week and I thought I'd spread the word.
LiVES functions as a non-linear video editor and a real-time VJ app. It's a great option for personal or professional use. If you'd like to give it a try it won't be found in the Ubuntu or Debian repositories, but it can be found in Marillat (Debian Multimedia).
