That's not comforting lol. I know it sounds stupid but the whole reason I even want Linux is because windows 8 sucks so horribly. I just want an easy experience and kubuntu offers that to me. I don't even NEED the console to use it which was nice.

Yea, but don't take it to the bank though. I don't own a 79xx card, so I don't follow the development there. My 6950 works great in Arch though. I can tell you that much.

I know it's asking a lot...but I think I'd be less let down by Valve if they released a game on Linux FIRST. I'd be happy with them if the games they have released were actually all ported and better than Windows performance. L4D2, CS1.6, and Day of Defeat Source are sorely lacking in performance right now. I wish I could find the article but I think it had to do with how Valve is porting games that is basically a "half-way" effort and hence not as good as it could have been. One thing that kind of makes me laugh is how in a 64bit linux install you have to do some work to get flash working or risk running into the crash on video loading bug in Steam. I seriously wish I could accelerate Flash's death because that crappy piece of software has been a bane of my computing life (even in Windows).

I've actually tried that combination for a while before.
The Linux AMD graphics drivers are desperately in need of attention.
It's stutter/frame-drop galore.

Agreed, I will work on one. I am going to look through some other threads to get a feel for the best way to keep track of the members.

That is an awesome idea!! Although there are probably quite a few people who might not use Steam for all of their games, a lot of the newer Linux gamers (such as myself) will use Steam for almost all of their gaming. High-five Shrak!

Yes, I have also heard about the 7000 series having a few issues with the drivers, but that is also why we have this "club", just in case someone who games on Linux knows how to make the best of the AMD drivers for the 7000 series GPUs. My only experience with the AMD drivers was for my APU I ran under Linux, which seemed to run decently. I do have hope the AMD drivers will improve... thumb.gif

I assume you play Dota 2... If you are down to play sometime, let me know!

Yea, sure. I suck though, because I started playing when Dota 2 released on Linux, and I'm European, so if you're American one of us would need to live with high latency.

As soon as I put together a rig I'll be able to formally join. Until then I don't really have any Linux boxes good enough to game on. I've been gaming in OS X lately since all I really play anymore is Dota2 and CSGO.

Doesn't it only run on Ubuntu though?

Sounds good to me!

If you are referring Steam, it runs on many if not all distros! Also, Kubuntu is based on Ubuntu with the KDE GUI if I remember correctly. Most of the distros that newer people to Linux try out are based on Ubuntu. So Steam should work fine on them. If you are curious about trying out Steam on a Linux distro, just let me know and I can help you out!
