  3. Your opinion on Linux?
2 years ago#1
I've been using Linux since early April, trying out different versions like Ubuntu, Mint, Zorin, Pinguy, and Manjaro. And I found Manjaro to be by far the best (based on Arch), and Ubuntu pretty much sucks balls. I found that the more I use it, the harder it is to go back to Windows, its been much more stable than Windows 7 has been for me. Its just as easy to use, and Steam comes preinstalled, and works like a charm. I've barely touched Windows in the last 6 months, it has a ton of potential, just need more games, and general software I think. Gun/Linux has been pretty amazing so far. Makes me hope that Valve succeeds with SteamOS/Steam Machines.

just need more games


That sums it up for me. I'd switch to some flavor of Linux if it was any good for gaming, but one still needs Windows for that, and I don't want to dual boot, so I'm sticking to Windows.

If AMDs drivers didn't suck for it and most my games were available on it I'd ditch windows in a heartbeat

I'm in the same boat. Don't want to get half my files on one OS and half on another. -_-;;

Linux is only useful for servers and really low spec machines.

Fine for a work machine, but it's still not up to the point where I'd use it as my primary OS on a personal machine.

It doesn't support much in the way of home pc use, and it really doesn't offer benefits i want over windows. I see it mostly as a 'cool' thing people use to feel superior.

Linux actually has the potential to be superior to Windows, it just needs more support from user, and developers.
