No one is forcing you to use Linux, so why are you complaining?

Can't really expect too much, they want to get their system working solid on one game first just to prove it works before they start a huge overhaul. As the client is still in beta there shouldn't be many expectations for more games. That's what is sad about a lot of people in this community, while being tech savvy, they don't seem to understand basic concepts such as beta software, or even in some of the other recent threads such as industrial / work related computers thinking it's supposed to be powerful enough to play their precious BF3.

And too tired for more multi quoting but to whoever said this isn't going to force AAA developers to make games for Linux. You're right, this won't force anyone, it isn't meant to. Steam is just going to try to prove that it is worth developing for Linux as their is a gaming base, and hope that other companies will see them making money and want in on the action. If not, then their loss.

I think alot of linux users are sick of those excuses. when was the last time you tried linux? maybe you should have a go with mint. the slackware/debian only days are long gone

You're joking right? In early 2011 Banshee still didn't support sort by genre - that's a disgrace for music management software. You would have been better off recommending Clementine. You're also overlooking random bugs that occur when creating smart playlists with any program other than iTunes. Did you seriously just compare Photoshop to The GIMP? SERIOUSLY??!! CUPS often doesn't function with the onboard buttons on all in one printers...

So please, save that nonsense for someone who doesn't know better. You claim you're tired of the excuses.. we're tired of hearing inferior products are a suitable replacement.

FYI...I know all about Mint - I've installed in on 2 friend's computers.

oh no genre, AAHH music destroyed.

cups has worked on every printer at my house, school and two of friends houses.

Yeah, personally I like gimp better. cups is superior, not inferior, banshee is superior, not inferior (useless you like crashing your computer. then itunes away) and gimp, well that's more a personal preference but I don't see how its suddenly not even comparable to photoshop like you make it sound
post #68 of 189
Banshee I wouldn't of used as an example. I more of a fan of MPD along with one of the various frontends like NCMPCPP or if you like GUI's the Sonata. Supports MP3's out of the box with no need for gstreamer plugins, along with just about every other audio format available. Can be sorted in any way you'd like ( depending on frontend used ), and others.

GIMP with the proper plugins is on par with some of the earlier Photoshop CS's. But won't compare to the newer versions and the features available by a long shot.

CUPS has worked great on all of the all-in-one printers I've used. And most onboard buttons will always work ( aside from things like scanning to computer, which is the only one I've ever had issues with ), but running the scanner from the computer works fine, though I agree not always ideal or efficient.

Though if you really need Windows applications such as those mentioned, WINE has great support for iTunes, Photoshop, and other popular programs. And has come along way with that support in quite a short time.

I don't even know what genre most of my music is anymore. And when I do it gets changed to a new name next week anyway.

I don't get it, why can people not just accept that people have their own preference in which OS to use? I've seen a few times people supporting Linux but saying that windows will still have it's use for them, yet some of you go and shut them down and treat them like they have no clue what they're talking about?

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
