It's tough to find games like GTA. That's because Rockstar Games has a tendency to set an impossibly high bar, which is something that helped propel GTA 5 to become one of the most successful video games of all-time and GTA Online as one of the most enduring. Still, if you're looking for other fantastic crime-ridden action games, or just one of the best open world games to explore, then we've got some great picks for you. Below you'll find the 10 best games like GTA, which should make the wait for GTA 6 a little easier on you.
ISPs can also throttle your internet when certain types of data, like large files or torrents, take up too much bandwidth. Your ISP can restrict your bandwidth, even if you already paid for it, simply because your activity is straining their network.
Add a slash (/) after the URLs to view the contents of compressed archives from the browser. This helps you avoid downloading upwards of 400 gigabytes just to get only a fraction of the contents. The archive also creates torrents of each entry (that are not the same as any original torrents the user may have uploaded) that you can use to speed up your downloads, but be warned however that these torrents can be problematic if the uploader has added/removed/renamed files in the collection as they tend to not update correctly, if at all, so you may end up with only part of the collection, or an older version of the collection. A better recommendation is to use a download manager listed below to grab all the files rather than use the torrents.
On real Wii U hardware, you could also download a package of all tickets ever of all regions and trick the official eShop into thinking you own the game and can redownload it, but on real hardware, it has been reported some out-of-region tickets cause problems. freeShop will just install the tickets you need for the game you chose.
Although not as dangerous as full-blown malware, adware can be a nuisance to PC and mobile users. Continuous pop-ups and new browser windows will flood the victim with a torrent of videos and static advertising, making normal use of the device/PC increasingly difficult. Back in 2020, 21 gaming apps were kicked out the Google Play store for containing intrusive adware.
Because we do need to run programs with root privileges, though (for tasks like installing software orediting global configurations, for example), Linux provides us with ways of running individualprograms with root credentials without having to be fully logged in as root. The most common include:
@Renzo: I hate that bug you quoted just the same, it's actually the main reason I'm using metacity. The problem with lucid beta 1 is that it removes the useful tooltips but keeps the annoying ones. Bug 356702 would still be present here because the window switcher tooltips are still there.
I must say I agree with a lot of the people complaining here... I do not like this change at all. It brings a whole new lot of problems we didn't have before. For example I like Rhythmbox's previous behavior that you just needed to click on its status notification icon ONCE and it brings it up, then if you click again it hides it. Now we have to make so many unnecessary extra steps because we need to click on it to see what was previously in the tooltips.
Tool tips are used all over the place, like everyone else has said its way to provide information about something running. It should always be left up to the user to want to see me _NOT_ forced. That just makes my blood boil when I find out a software manufacture thinks they need to change something that has been around FOR EVER just to they think improve something that is working and _NOT_ causing systems to crash. PLEASE LEAVE THE TOOLTIPS alone and fix something that actually is cause problems for new users.
QUESTION: What are your opinions on Bug 527458 ( -application/+bug/527458 ) and the decision to deprecate tooltips from the panel indicators? Will tooltips come back in Maverick? i've commented on the bug, for anyone who wants to read the thread there in short, i think tooltips are most often a disaster because there is a slot there, people put stuff in it even if they don't have to so we end up with a whole lot of really crap and useless tooltips that just clutter up the interface and because they have tooltips, they don't do the extra work to think through the most important info to convey in the underlying asset because hey, you can just stuff all the detail in a tooltip! i've done it myself, in the past i'm ashamed but i'm cured and so no, i don't think the tooltips will come back but it's a 90% certainty for me, perhaps someone will convince me otherwise but they'd have to convince a few other people, who might convince me :-)
I agree with most comments here. An LTS release is NOT the place for radical changes. An LTS release that slows down my workflow is indeed a bad decision, because I have to stick with it for 3 long years (if I'm in need of a stable release). Mark, don't get me wrong: I appreciate new ideas about usability and reducing clutter, and I agree that sometimes things just needed to be done. But still...coming up with UI changes (like buttons on the left...and so on) and usability changes (like indicators without tooltips or indicators that burden me with scrolling through menus to letting me perform a certain action) is a bit too much - especially for an LTS release.
Bilal Akhtar, well network-manager's applet is not technically an indicator, that's why it has the "old-school" tooltip.But I agree that many people doesn't notice that or just think (like I did) that a such NEEDED feature was just disabled by mistake or because of the immature development of the indicators...
I too signed up to this not just because of the missing tooltips, but the fact that such a (IMO poor) decision could be made without consent of the masses. I think it is wrong to take functionality away assuming that the entire population either does not use it or will get over it. Surely you must agree that not being able to configure something totally goes against being Linux.
Samples: Skype should be running always so that co-workers can reach me when I am online. However, I am not interested in that application yet. When an event happens I want to see it and if I double click on an incoming call I get (and want) that particular event/window in the taskbar as it gets a current task (the call or chat). I also want to have Shutter running in the background because on startup it takes a while to load the plugins. As I do need Shutter often, but then just for two or three screenshots, I like having it in the notification area even if it never displays any notification or status. KeePassX is also an application I need running in the background because it offers the CTRL+ALT+X hotkey posting login data to my web forms but never displays notifications or status.
But the important thing that is overlooked IMHO: You need to differ between time critical messages plus applications/status you simply want to have "at hand" and other just "FYI" type messages. If my laptop battery goes empty in a few minutes then this is a high priority information that is more important for me that - let's say facebook friends chatting me. Also a time critical information can be if Ubuntu One finished syncing because I might want to shutdown m...

I have another argument against menus replacing tooltips:Hovering a few pixel off the target just shows the wrong tooltip. Butclicking off the target may start your IDE or Firefox with 20 tabs, mayclose a window or deselect a dozen carefully selected icons.
I don't think so even in mid-term future because of physical conflict:A small mobile device can never offer a big view (maybe withprojecting it into the air only) and a small keyboard is simply not aseasy to handle as a bigger one that fits more the human hand. BTW: Ido not think that speech recognition and related technology will getstable within the next years, as I notice that neither fulltextindexing does (which is more important yet).
I have read more comments and other views and have come to the conclusion that Ubuntu may not be for me.On the plus side the installation experience was fantastic, the initial impression from the way it looked was good.On the minus side an update of the system froze the GUI and required a hard power cycle, and it seems that the default desktop GUI is too functionality-stripped to suit my taste. Getting rid of Unity didn't improve things much as the old style menus looked tired and developmentally orphaned. Unity would be nice if it wasn't so dumbed down (presumably for touch screen usage) and unconfigurable. Unfortunately Windows 7 (and even Vista) are more appealing and feel less straight-jacket like. I know I can hack Linux to anything, but most users can't -and the maintenance trouble of a totally personalised system is not something I wish to handle. I never liked the space wasting "global menu bar" (macintosh style) feature, and can't seem to get rid of it at all nowdays in Ubuntu. Window buttons on the left is a mac thing, and seems to screw up most existing themes. Weren't they always on the right on Linux systems? I use a Mac (mini) and an iPhone, and can just say that the Mac GUI is nice, but cannot be half-implemented. You either have it fully implemented, or it's no good. And not even Apple tries to make the touch screen interface the same as the real computer version. Linux has come a long way since the early days, but dumbing down the GUI universally cannot be the way forward, surely? 2b1af7f3a8
