That's what I've learnt: a class is the idea of something. If I create a chair class I don't refer to a specific chair, but to its chairness.
Sounds pretty dumb but perfectly logical.
Moreover this is really similar to Plato's philosophy, and that's just great!

I think it could be because of the new experimental drivers required to play.
By the way, surprisingly I did not experience that non-beta users issue.
That's it for now, I hope they update the game and the drivers soon.
Quick post from phone.
Maybe it's just because I haven't turned off the PC since I installed Steam, but as now TF2 is extremely slow even using lxde and with the minimum graphic quality.
Or just because it is an early beta, I don't know. Anyway, when I go back home I'll do more tests.

Amusing testing INCOMING!
I will probably experience a known problem with accounts not authorized for beta testing, but hopefully I already have a solution!
Here it is for you:
1. Open a Steam file with gedit and superuser permissions with this command:
sudo gedit /usr/bin/steam
2. Edit the file putting this
Now you should be good to go, have fun!
When it arrived I had the SD card ready with Debian and I instantly turned it on.
When I finally saw the shell I thought I could already do... stuff.
But nothing useful seemed to work: HDMI audio wasn't working, the little PC started overheating and when I started LXDE it began terribly slow. I decided to try Open Elec, a light distribution with pre-installed XBMC, but it has the same problems of Debian.
Some months later I also tried an Android Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, thinking that since Android was developed for ARM it would have worked. Nope. System UI continuous crashes.
At last i gave up. I had a useless piece of cheap hardware capable of doing nothing.
For some time I forgot about it, since a couple of days ago I read about XBMC giving official support to Raspberry Pi.
The system is called Xbian. When I installed it I thought I would have had the same problems of Debian and Open Elec. But surprisingly almost everything was working!
And with everything I mean HDMI audio, nice performance, no excessive overheating and even AirPlay.
The only visible problem is with 1080p movies, but I don't really care: I am finally ready to set my Raspberry Pi in the living room as media center!
Still needs testing, maybe in a big open area instead of my balcony...
Anyway, today I found a working version of Android 4.2 cool Photo Sphere feature flashable on Jelly Bean 4.1.x.
|Sample of Photo Sphere on Nexus 4 I think...|
After changing some settings in build.prop (do backups!) it decided to start. Today I had no chance to try it outdoors, but tomorrow I will give it a better try.
For now I can say that the result is pretty bad... I don't know why... As I said this needs more testing!
