Hi Tom

No, it's an actual game from Atari, Mark was playing with the words, if I am correct, with "Eastern Front - Font" and Doug picked up on this asking about a genuine early 1980's game. Check out my email posted a short while ago.

Sorry Kracked, you cracked this one wrongly :-D

Ah! Steam, hate it overall as to what it's doing to the gaming world, but they own over 75% of the market now. But a good thing is that Steam client is now available on Ubuntu (possibly other distros as well), and if you own the Windows game, you get a free port-over to linux, so Windows games running directly within Linux. But I also use Wine, and I have all of my top games running in Ubuntu, with no issues, learnt long ago how to get this right. I mainly fly virtual aviation SIM's such as FS9, FSX, FlightGear, X-Plane and DCS, and belong to two VAC's (Virtual Aviation Clubs) here locally. I've been flying for many years, having had a genuine PPL, 30 odd years ago. All of the above now run fine under my Ubuntu distro, either natively (FlightGear and X-Plane 9 and 10), or through Wine (MS flightsims, DCS). So watch for high end games on Linux, it's the next new frontier and there is plenty happening in this scene.

Hi :)
Game.  It was a tpyo.  It's an odd name imo because everywhere has somewhere else that is east and to some 
people "the eastern font" was actually to their west (unless going the longer way around).

Someone recently sent me a link to a Steam Game that is on special offer at £30 but i am still quite 
enjoying Glest and Wesnoth.  I do quite like the idea of the Humble Bundle collections that come out 
from time to time.  I think if more Gnu&Linux people did buy games then the Games industry might 
take more notice and that might have a domino effect resulting in better drivers.
Regards from
Tom :)

All quiet on the eastern font, then... :-)


Does anybody know if the old Atari game, "Eastern Front" has been
ported to Linux, or even to Windows?


You looking for the font used on the Atari system or a game?
