Ataribox Will Run On Linux Using An AMD Chip, Cost $250+

Atari has released more details about their upcoming Ataribox game console, disclosing that the machine will run Linux on an AMD processor and cost between $250 to $300. The company will begin a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo this fall and launch the Ataribox sometime in the spring of 2018 with a large back catalog of the publisher’s classic games.

The new box will have an AMD custom processor with Radeon graphics. It will run the Linux operating system, with a user interface it’s customizing for TVs. Mac said that the machine will run PC games, but it will also be capable of doing streaming, running apps, browsing the web, and playing music. As far as games go, the machine will run the kind of games that a mid-range PC can do today, but it won’t run Triple-A games that require high-end PC performance.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update To Remove or Deprecate Some Features

 

Microsoft has published a support document revealing what features will be removed or deprecated in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update: these include features and programs such as the Paint application, Outlook Express, screen saver functionality in Themes, System Image Backup (SIB) Solution, and Windows PowerShell 2.0.

The following features and functionalities in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update are either removed from the product in the current release (“Removed”) or are not in active development and might be removed in future releases (“Deprecated”). This list is intended to help customers consider these removals and deprecations for their own planning. The list is subject to change and may not include every deprecated feature or functionality.

While some of the things being deprecated or removed doesn’t really bother me too much, I still use screensavers on my machines, mostly just for aesthetic reasons. It’s still a new feature to have, even if it’s not as useful as it used to be. Your thoughts? Share with us in the comment section below!
