Open Source Poker: PokerTH 0.6.4 Released

Mar 25, 2009

For some game fanatics, the only reason they continue to use Windows is to play poker. Yet Linux also offers poker software.

Start with $3000 and play against the computer or on the Internet.

PokerTH is a C++ and Qt4 software for Linux, Mac and Windows with a GPLv2 license. TH stands for Texas Hold'em, hence the name. The software supports games against the PC (up to six players), games in a LAN network or on the Internet.

The new version 0.6.4 comes with improved server-support and an external avatar system. Various bugs have also been fixed. Go here for the download.

    If you have browsed the tech news recently, you probably saw a pair of stories about an important open source browser the world knows as Firefox. If it matters to you, I will add that, despite the logo, a Firefox is really not supposed to be a fox at all but is actually a red panda. The news stories? The first was that Firefox just had its ninth birthday. The browser was born when the Mozilla Foundation (remnants of the once great Netscape Communications Corp.) realized its old Mozilla browser was getting too bloated and wanted a fresh start.
