system76 urban terror

While I’d never recommend buying an Intel Atom powered netbook as a hardcore gaming machine, the truth of the matter is that a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU and GMA 950 graphics are good enough for some games. And that’s not only true for netbooks running Windows.

The video below depicts a System76 Starling Netbook running Ubuntu 9.10 Linux. And it’s playing a free multiplayer  first person shooter called Urban Terror which is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

I’m not really an expert on first person shooters, but the game seems to be running pretty smoothly, although the player could probably use a bit of training. He gets shot and killed twice in the span of the three minute video.
