GNOME presents the game "Who wants to be a millionaire" among this week's news

Who wants to be a millionaire in Debian GNOME

GNOME He presented yesterday the news that has taken place in his world, which is not the same as his circle, in the week of November 18 to 26. His world is basically everything related to the desktop, and his circle is what becomes part of the GNOME Circle, that is, applications that they consider worthy of bearing their name and being under their umbrella. This week there is news on both fronts.

To begin with, Boatswain has joined the circle of GNOME (we have several articles on this circle, such as this y this). It is an application that allows you to control Elgato devices, which if I remember correctly, and without looking at any cheat sheet, I would say that they are devices for watching TV from the computer, but real TV, the one that is received through a antenna, and not anything from the Internet like Photocall TV that forces us to be connected.

This week in GNOME

As for the world, that is, related to the GNOME project, the game "Who wants to be a millionaire" has been released, aka 50x15 (if I'm wrong, correct me). It is based on a television contest in which the participant can win €/$1.000.000 if they answer 15 questions correctly, being able to use three wild cards.

The funny thing, or rather "suspicious", is that the first two (and only) winners I saw did exactly the same thing before answering question 15 and taking the million (hyphen?). In any case, the game is already available on Flatub, although Spanish is not mentioned anywhere. What is mentioned is why it is related to the project, basically because it uses GTK4, libadwaita and Blueprint, three key components in the GNOME interface. The programming language they have used for this game is C.

Among the rest of the news that have arrived during the last seven days, we have:
