[Softpedia] Steam for Linux Will Get Eight Amazing New Games - Page 11

post #101 of 189
This may end up totally breaking me away from Windows eventually. Depends on what games get ported.
post #102 of 189
The only things that keep me from using a Linux distro like Ubuntu as my main OS is the fact that I cannot play games and that I am not 100% familiar with Ubuntu. Unfortunately unless nearly all games I own end up working on Linux I don't plan on switching soon. I do plan on using Linux more often just to get familiar with the OS. I personally think open source operating systems are the future!

Linux users are getting what they've wanted for years and now for those who can, are able to completely abandon Windows. What then gives you the right to tell others that they should be doing the same as you? As much as I enjoy using linux WINE is too hit or miss to depend on professionally and open source programs are good but they don't have anywhere near the feature set of the Windows equivalent.
From what I saw, noone has said "ZOMG*** LINUX IS BAD WINDOWS IS MASTER OS!!!!" but they've mentioned the bugs and then spoke from their personal preference. But then seeing crap like "Windows is for noobs who only want better graphics" or "If you like viruses and slow boot times then stick to windows" makes me wonder if maybe MacOS users aren't some of the most childish people I've seen. Linux is great for those who enjoy it, like it or not. Not everyone does like it which is why the majority will stick to Windows for now. I enjoy linux, but I won't be switching full time until I can get the Adobe software running without problems.
The immaturity in here i terrible. It's not so hard, show a little respect thumb.gif

The first sentence is the reason why kids get shut down. Most of the time it isn't "I like Linux, and I like what it stands for; but I can't stand using it/it doesn't work for me/I don't have the time to run/learn it." but instead, "I use Windows ergo Linux sucks."
This is why we come with loads of retort towards the statements in these sorts of threads. I don't go actively seek out Windows supporter threads and try and abolish their operating system, no matter how I feel about it. I think Windows 8 was a great step forward, and a couple of small steps back. Windows has a place on this planet (kind of) and so does Mac (more so) - I'm less inclined to support Windows having a stable position in the market due to its horrendous support and technological difficulties ranging from malware to crashing; but Windows 8 is a wonderful breath of fresh air in that department, its moving away from the issues Windows has been plagued with for so long. But then they decided to trash can the start menu (? why... personalization wizard during first time set up - Radio button #1: Classic Start Menu for Desktop and Laptop users and those with a standard pointing device. Radio Button #2: New Windows Start Screen, with touch friendly input for touch enabled devices, such as tablets and all-in-one PCs; two simple options, one solution.... why.. i dont .. sigh) which in my opinion is one of many small steps backward, in addition to removing a lot of the customization options and tucking more of the advanced options away in hidden corners. Anyways, back on topic: I noticed you said not anyone had been completely off the hook bashing Linux, and blindly supporting Windows, and for the most part this is true, a few exceptions are present, but yes things have been civil thus far. I for one was appauled that someone would consider a BETA to be TERRIBLE because it has more issues than a STABLE RELEASE version, especially when the beta is on a new platform with completely different internal workings, and the release model has been around for over a decade. My fit of rage was not over whether Linux or Windows was better... But over expecting programmers to be some sort of mythical porting creature that can foresee all potential inputs and outputs in millions of variables over decades of man-hours of use - all whilst rewriting the code to work in a new environment they've only just started to venture into, and make no mistakes.

Supposedly CryEngine is compatible with Linux and Star Citizen uses CryEngine... on top of that the poll they ran had ~20% vote for Linux support. I will play it in Wine if I have to but I somehow doubt I will need to....

Keep saying it. Brotherhood of Mouse and Keyboard

We're all PC users. Many of our programs are already crossplatform, many more will become so. The time of OSes being the dominant dividing line is nearing an end.

Yeah... Gnome Shell kinda grew on me (with certain extensions installed).
I was surprised how well it plays with fglrx (Catalyst drivers) compared to other DEs.

I'm an avid linux supporter and I would disagree with that!

 

windows audio and display subsytem blows xorg and alsa clear out of the water. there are a lot of times the only way in linux for me to get my sound back (especially if a 32 bit application has granted itself sole control over the sound card, and does not release it when i close the program), is to reboot. in windows, dual displays are handled a whole lot better, as programs know that one monitor is 1680x1050 and the other is 1920x 1080, so when i fire up a program in full screen, it does not stretch across some mystical 3600x1080 that xorg sets for my dual monitor setup.

 

i could set here all day and layout ways windows is better than linux, but i could also do the reversal. so i hope no one takes this as a slight towards linux :). they both serve their purposes, and whichever meets your needs better is going to be the superior one.

 

as for steam coming to linux, all i can say its about time :)

The sound problem is user error and likely to do with a bad setup or config file, honestly never had that happen in all my years, and even then should be as simple as killing it and restarting the service ( same thing as restart the computer ). And the monitor situation is again, the wrong setup. I've got 5 monitors running off one box right just fine, and each one reacts just as it should tongue.gif

i've use open office extensively. and open office can also deal with doc, so that's not an issue. the problem is that open office has too many glitches and crashes too much
