Why Ubuntu and which objective about Ubuntu Games?


Ubuntu I chose Ubuntu as the main linux distribution as I identify with it for the idea of promoting simple and efficient operating system for the users. I also thank the community that had a strong weight in my decision, and without a doubt is opened to suggestions and, is clearly, contributions.
Ubuntu It is very important to speak about games in linux, because this is a critical factor so that more people using them migrate from Windows® platform to Linux. Linux always was criticized by all the people that find it bad or complicated, saying that there is very few the options of amusement in it; as the majority of the games is only released for Windows®. Then the objective is to help with tutoriais, illustrations, hints of Installations and configurations of the best games for the Ubuntu Linux system.

Ubuntu Carlos Donizete is a great friend, he also does a great job with Ubuntu Games project. Ubuntu Games Project is responsible by many gamers come to Ubuntu Linux. The IUG (Ubuntu Games Installer) is his newest project and is just the best idea i ever seen. I recommend Carlos Donizete to become an Ubuntu Member! -- LedStyle

Ubuntu Coringão (aka Carlos Donizete) is one of the more hard working members I have ever seen in the Brazilian team. He hasn't done the usual translation and documentation work, but he has created a whole new sub community with Ubuntu Games. His site and work has been complimented by people from all around the world. Also, he has been doing lots of advocating in national FOSS events showing users that they can also have fun on Ubuntu. On the biggest events he should have a booth of his own, as there are dozens of people looking for him at each instant. He is a GREAT asset for the Brazilian community and a very important piece for Ubuntu and FOSS grow in the gamers community. I have to give him my best recommendations possible for a membership. -- MarioMeyer

Ubuntu Coringao did an excellent work with Ubuntu Games. I met him at FISL'08, and support him to become an Ubuntu Member. -- AndreGondim
