I noticed today that I had a few people find my blog via Google with a search for, e.g. “ubuntu software install texas hold em.” This is because I have some writings about poker and about Ubuntu Linux.
Well, I don’t want to pass up the chance to give good, globally-utility-maximizing advice. The only place I’ve ever played real money online poker is PokerRoom.com, which has a cross-platform-friendly Java client. And while I haven’t played since 2004, in 2003/2004 I can vouch for their legitimacy.
Of course, the recent round of corrupt, hypocritical legislation that has created a War on (some) Gambling has really eff’ed up the entire online poker scene, so YMMV.
