This might suprise you but I made this topic as I looked at linux as a replacement for my windows.
Only thing that is stopping me on the moment is that I want to game on it and without to much trouble.
Think the time has come as STEAM and VALVE are doing a porject called proton.
To give you a idea what is going on here are some vids.

Hi Bee, and LOL and all others.
Long time no playing (guess you're all happy with that).

Interesting Bee, since Steam cut of SteamOS.
Did you notice OS update btw? Just put in your password and you're good Smile

I've played OFP MP on Vine with you on LOL servers, so it works.
But that's half the truth. Playing nVidia those days (hell of a hack to even get nV run on lux), nV drivers cut out overlay, kind of cheating but I didnt't care then Smile)

Wonder what Valve is up to? They have captured lots of studios with promises of games playable cross-platform and then dropping their own OS who should do that job. According to Bee's links the new system is a Vine-simulator...

Cut to the core:
Stay out ftm Bee, at least on ubunt.
There's other distros thats better, ubuntu has become all the annoying things we missed in W98...
You Can compare the different distros with the differences of todays smartphones, htc, samsung, huawei, asus and others (not kinder-phone). They all do the same, it's just your own preferences that matters.

Google (or youtube) "compare Linux distro"
and for the fun of it "Linux vs Windows"
Lookong Glass is a hint in last link Smile
