Was very close to install Ubuntu until.. - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Good luck!

I have this thing where I go to a different OS every week, so I've tried it all. :-D
Ubuntu and Debian are the 2 best linux distros IMO. Oh wait, SUSE is there too! :-D

Ahh. Okay, I think I'm on my way back to linux in about 5 min. lol

Well it can be used daily, if you get open source programs instead of the ones you would normally use. If you're not a gamer or photoshop designer, you can use linux daily. But there is GIMP to replace photoshop, Openoffice to replace MS office, etc. So linux can be used daily, just not with the same programs you're used to, and no games without emulation.

Well, you should know that linux is different. It's a known fact.

Is the difference what you want? Well, that's all up to you. But ultimately, how will you ever know if you don't at least try it?

And WoW? Will that work? I read online that it wont, at least not without heavy coding.

I indeed want a change, I am getting tired of windows, and having to eaither pay for things or get it through other means >

It seemed like something fresh is all, I just want my new machine that Im building soon to function properly, If i spend 2grand on another custom rig I want it to work with a solid OS, not one i can only do half my stuff on.

Idk what you are talking about coding and such. WoW is a closed source application.

Maybe this will help you. Or this.

A friend of mine told me to use codega, as wine does not have direct x support and lags is this true?
