Vegastrike Live



I have not played Vegastrike ever, so I have no idea about how good is the game (and frankly, space sims are not my favorite genre, so I don't have any plans to learn), but reading the thread about its data package file size this idea seems natural to me: how about a special Fedora spin for the game?

While it does not solve the initial problem about space on mirrors and bandwidth usage, it seems a cool idea to me to have a bootable USB pen drive (with live persistence for savegames!!!) with a minimal Fedora and the complete game. It may be targeted at 1 GB drives (including the space for live persistence), to keep the costs low.

Thinking more about it, maybe even drop any desktop, start the game directly and shut down on exit. Simple as this: put the drive in, start the computer and play (pimp Fedora only during the startup, while RHGB is doing its job).

This may work also for other such large games and it may be a good showcase of our technology.
