Do you think Linux gaming will ever be a thing?

Nothing to do with "Linux". People are equally idiotic when it comes to the windows CLI. Tell them to open a prompt and type in ipconfig /a and their brain shuts off.

People need to get over this idiotic phobia of text. There's nothing ****ing hard about entering a command, often verbatim, into a CLI.


You're thinking too much as a typical Linux elitist.
Using the terminal is a steep learning curve for anyone not used to Linux.


I'd say the exact same thing if I'd never touched a *nix based OS in my life. Comprehending simple English sentences and typing a few basic commands is NOT a steep learning curve. A ****ing 5 year old could do it and think nothing of it while they're doing it.


It is for anyone that has used Windows since Windows 95. And since the vast majority of "normal" users are used to Windows only on their PCs, using Linux is indeed a steep learning curve for the vast majority of users.

Linux elitists may love the possibilities you have compared to Windows. But many users don't care about such things, they just want it all to simply work.


Heres the command to install .net 3.5 on windows 8
dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess
Is that scary?
It's a lot easier to give you that then to explain how to navigate the control panel.

The VAST majority of 5 year old's can't even read... And while I agree relatively speaking with your point, making hugely inaccurate statements to try and make your point is rather silly.

You'd be amazed at what kids can do if they're not told something is too hard for them.

And yet that has absolutely no impact on the fact that the vast majority of 5 year olds can't read. Which btw, has no bearing on them being told something is to hard for them, it has to do with cognitive and physical development. A newborn can't walk walk because they haven't developed the muscles in their legs, not because their parents tell them walking is to hard for them.

When you already know the command line you want it is much easier and faster than a GUI.
If, on the other hand, you don't know what you're looking for exactly a GUI is less intimidating to "poke around" in for the average user with out them worrying that they'll mess something up.

The vast, vast, majority of PC users are the kind of people that if you told them to format their HDD or reinstall their drivers they would give you a blank stare like you just started talking in another language.
Those people are much more comfortable with GUIs that walk them through things step by step and explain everything that is happening along the way.

For an OS that uses command line to take off you're going to need to introduce it early to a young generation so they can grow up learning it.

Most functions don't need command line. But when asking for help, it's much easier to just give someone a command line to run, then to tell them a series of steps on what to click on.

Also, I didn't know that command line, I grabbed it from a tutorial off the internet.

Here's the problem with that. They don't have to go poking around the CLI looking for things. It's right in front of them in the tutorials they whine about using. Do what the documentation tells you. Not a hard concept.

No, it's not.

It may be for you, and it may be for other users who don't want to spend 10 minutes learning something. But actually using the command line to copy and paste commands is really freaking easy and straight forward.

Actually learning how to use the command line 100% on your own is a learning curve, that's not what he's talking about.
