    Vmware Dev Enviroment Image...

    I usually start my development work by using one of the server images from here - http://www.thoughtpolice.co.uk/vmware/ there's no reason for X etc to be present is there ? Ubuntu server install is like 190 odd megs compressed. Download, update , add additional packages, recompress and share.

    Love2D - A Lua Based Game Engine

    We did some more evaluation and every should be completely portable, after the opengl/es port is done. even then , it might work with a compatibility layer out of the box.

    Php-Gtk For Games!

    Actually. javascript might be a very very good language for games soon too. v8 (the chrome engine) is completely separate, and there are SDL bindings and the like. code.google.com/p/lov8/ -- a port of the http://www.love2d.org game engine (which is lua based). PHP itself is toooooo damn...

    Love2D - A Lua Based Game Engine

    Pandora Live / Pandora Network
