Here's a nice one:
I decided to install the remastered Lucas game 'Grim Fandango' for old times sake and it is a great game after all.
I noticed there was a linux version on offer here:
and decided to install it, actually expecting it not to work considering it was from 2014 and ...... in fact it didn't, of course.
I then thought about trying 'lutris' albeit I don't have 'wine' installed. I wasn't very hopeful but after some fiddling, pointing it to the right directory it does run and even quite nicely.
Hooray, now I can waste more time on my laptop.
