This is also my issue with Linux. There are too many options that it can be overwhelming. I see why Ubuntu gets a lot of focus since it helped to bring Linux more mainstream and took some of the scariness out of it. But now we have multiple versions of Ubuntu that it itself is getting too daunting. Steam will help alleviate the decision for many people since it is focusing on Ubuntu. But still, those trees and branches show me that while we will have nearly an unlimited amount of choices, what if everyone focused together on only a couple distros? I know this has been said before and ultimately, I love the choices and really do not care too much, but am just thinking about the average guy and those what if questions.

I love my Linux Mint, #!, and recently have been really enjoying Bodhi.

So you like that we have nothing to answer that?

  • More stable
  • Easier to install and uninstall programs
  • Faster
  • Cheaper
  • Fun exploring new distros
  • Anyone can mod the code
  • More freedom
  • Can install different GUI's (as to not end up with Metro)
  • Less virus
  • Can run on older hardware
  • Not support monopolies


Need I go on?

The only thing Windows has that Linux does not is Mainstream Gaming.

Which is definitely not a determining factor in any decisions except for Gaming.

Linux distros are like mistresses, they are younger, more fun, better looking and they don't demand anything. But due to obligations, financial reasons and practicalities of every day live you need to stay with your wife (Windows) .

My wife is Linux. Windows is my Gf's mistress, I won't touch it aside from when she needs help with it.

Ok well since it may be hard/impossible to get DX11 to work on linux, my question is doesn't WINE run DX9 games in linux? If so, then why can't they do the same thing for dx10/11 games?

FYI I know almost nothing about linux except for the fact that the CD of linux I have at my house has a red hat on it.....

Already answered that.

It just takes time, but it's coming along. And if Valve is successful then it'll open the flood gates to Linux gaming.

We are long away from win 98 and stability issues. We wouldn't have m$ domains at all if that was an issue... Not sure that you'll be able to find even BIND server these days...
On windows: VM->Install vmware tools-> Next,next,next,finish.
On BT5:
root@bt:~# prepare-kernel-sources
root@bt:~# mkdir /mnt/cdrom; mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
root@bt:~# cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-.tar.gz /tmp/
root@bt:~# cd /tmp/
root@bt:~# tar zxpf VMwareTools-.tar.gz
root@bt:~# cd vmware-tools-distrib/
root@bt:~# ./vmware-install.pl
And this one is really considered super easy install, ever tried getting asterisk and configuring it?smile.gif
Here's another challenge - GAL in mail client with exchange2010 on linux.
And another: google->Chrome->install->Done
apt-get install chrome-> How to get chrome on linux->wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-beta
Enjoy!

Oh wait. Google -> how to run chrome on linux without root error.


Not sure in what exactly it is faster.
It's free, why use word cheaper?
Strange definition of fun.
Have you ever modded any code outside "theInternetzz"?
Freedom of what?
Gnome and KDE. What else is there and so fundamentally different?
Not sure if there is "Un-catchable Joe" joke in English and why is he un-catchable.
Not sure why I need linux install on older hardware or one that is weaker than my phone... Win7 runs perfectly on P4 btw.

Monopolies... You got Win7, M$ keyboard in your sig... and hotmail account biggrin.gif


P.S. nobody is forcing metro on you. You don't have to install win8 and I failed to see why would you concerned or boycott it if you are linux guy anyway...
And yes, please go on.

Linux =

Software Center -> Install.

Or

Open terminal -> {package-manager} {install} {package name}

If you have to do anymore than that, then you're doing it wrong. And unless you're managing your whole system ( slack-style ) then using anything other than the package manager is not the way to go. Especially for such small things like vmware and chrome ( chromium is better smile.gif )

Windows =

Open Browser -> go to correct website -> download correct file -> browse to the file location -> double click on the installer -> click however many more times the installer asks for -> ohai it's finally installed.
