So instead of focusing on securing more classics, they will instead of focus on worthless linux support. Are you ********* kidding me.


You do get they can do both, right? That the people who would work on securing the rights to sell old games sure as hell wouldn't be the same people making sure games work on Linux?

Think kid, think.

You do get it is unlikely as hell that people who handle legal issues like getting permission to sell old games also handle making them work on Linux, right?

That the 2 things are not mutually exclusive?

As I said to the other guy, think kid, think.

Let me guess, you've only ever used the operating system that was preloaded on the machine that you bought?

It baffles me utterly that anyone could find anything negative to say about Linux getting more games.

lol check my sig.

The fact of the matter is that Linux has a long way to go before I'd consider it a serious OS. I've tried Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, Linspire, and SteamOS; every single one of them is nowhere near Windows when it comes to intuitive design.

Let me guess, you tried them once like ten years ago? Becuase now they are all really friggin easy to use. I especially like Manjaro, much easier and intuitive than either of those distros.
