Your comment shows your knowledge about the subject, FYI 91% of the top500 super computers use Linux. Try doing that with Windows, trust me, it won't just work.

Oh the horrors of the down time! LOL. For practical use Linux still has some way to go but it really has come to a point where a person doesn't need to spend too much time to adjust and leave windows/OSX behind. I think if I was a console gamer I wouldn't have a need for windows.

Yes I would have to agree, If I didn't know the difference between DX-11 and DX-9 and OPEN GL.
Not to mention the Fun of building a rig, overclocking it, benching it, and feeling proud of it.

Honestly I feel that in the last year I have seen a jump in Linux user. If more games were just made in JDK/SDK like MineCraft then this would be so much easier to *save* people from the grips of the true *infidel* that is MS.

NO it doesn't, there's too much fragmentation and still not enough support from hardware manufacturers for it to be an alternative to Windows. No matter how much Linux enthusiasts go on about Linux it is useless for the average user. While Ubuntu and some others have made it easier with their software centre doesn't mean it's as easy to use as Windows.

I really like Mint, it's light, fast and does everything out the box but even I wouldn't consider it that much of a replacement for Windows. Hopefully one day we will get there, but first we need that mess called OpenGL sorted or get people to use OpenCL, if that's a viable replacement.

Mint is for n00bs.

The main attraction of linux is supposed to be its complexity. Everything is in the hands of the user. It's not supposed to be easy. When you start messing with it to the liking of your system is where it shines.

OpenGL on linux is just fine. It's on feature parity with DX11. If you want to see for yourself, install a distro, download the Unigine Heaven Benchmark for Linux and witness the OpenGL tessellation for yourself. You're mistaking it with OSX's really really bad OpenGL implementation for Macs. Their still on OpenGL 2.0 I believe.

OpenCL has nothing to do with video output at all.

EDIT: It's got WAYYYYY more hardware support than Windows will ever have.

Here is a tip from Some one I dislike a lot
"Fake it till you make it." ~Trump
As much as I dislike "The Donald," He has a good point.
The more people use Linux the more money will be pumped in to it! FACT
So lets not bad mouth the good guy, even if its true. Let people get all gitty over compiz CUBE. Let it GROW

Honestly Have you guys seen more and more people using Linux lately.
I mean go do a Youtube search for Linux.
Why do you think M$ pumped $$$ in to 3.0
It is happening, OS EVOLUTION... FREE is Powerfull!
disagree?
How much does Windows cost in China?
Hows The US Economy?
What does Google, IBM, Facebook, and Bing have in common?
How long does it take to make Windows Dev.?
Howlong to make a new Linux Distro Dev.?

Got to start some where, and Mint is a Great place to start!
Im taking a CST course, and for our Linux Mod, I showed the class Compiz. They are hooked like Junkies. Some people think that GUI should be last so people Learn from scratch, but if that was the case, most people would be done before starx... most would be done before addusr!

This my friends is the attitude that is causing Linux not to hit the big mainstream. "It has to be geek only!!!". No, it doesn't. Mint isn't for noobs, mint is for everyday users. Elitists these days...
