If I could play all my games on Linux, I'd never use a different OS ever again.

C# pretty much automatically handcuffs you to Microsoft, but as I said text editors + properly configured CLI > overengineered IDEs.


I've used both. Give me an IDE any time.

But then again, this is just personal preference. No absolute truth.


I'm a vi guy. It's just so much faster once you get over the learning curve. But you're right about the personal preference.

There's one thing about Linux and software/hardware support. People don't make software/drivers for Linux because not many people use it. People don't use Linux because of lack of software support. If more people use Linux, the software will probably come.

I tried Linux a few years back; I was happy with it except for having to reboot all the time for games (this was before there was good VM support.) I'd happily go back to it if I didn't have to be constantly rebooting.
I have a blog! Warcraft and other gamer musings.

I'll just be happy if SteamOS has a decent interface. Call me shallow, but there is not a single Linux DE out there that has a nice, consistent interface, and I find that to be important. There's always one mis-matched icon or something in the notification bar that doesn't look right, etc. It's annoying. My current setup is just the Openbox WM and a dock at the bottom, can't remember which one. It's simple and pretty clean, stays out of my way. Windows still looks nicer though.
