The argument is quite ridiculous. Better/more powerful hardware does not guarantee better games. Flexible hardware configuration actually introduces problems (that'll ruin the fun) for both users/developers.

I'd recommend to drop "consoles vs pc" discussion - the thread is already useless enough without extra flamewar.
Gotta love how someone who likes to debate can't read. I never said what you said I did. I said that the latest FPS games and flight sims require powerful hardware specifications. I did not say it guarantees better games. To get good FPS with a modern first person game when playing multiplay, you're going to have to have a good graphics card. There's no way around it and you'll lose every time because you will be seen before you can see anyone to target.

That's just ONE example. I can go on and on, but I'm not. Why? Because you don't know how to debate and you're obviously visiting this thread with a chip on your shoulder. I don't understand how you can call someone's argument ridiculous when its obvious you don't know the first thing about PC gaming...everything you've said so far hints that you haven't gamed on a PC in at least 10 years. I'm also failing to understand why you even mentioned MMORPG....games such as those aren't going to tax a system in the way that Black Ops or LOMAC would.

This console vs pc discussion wasn't initiated by us, but your apparent partner in crime. So, you don't agree. Big deal. Let it go or ignore the comments if you can't at least debate properly. The PC gaming comments WERE on-topic until that first odd comment, which was pretty trollish. You aren't helping it either, with adding your own odd comments. If you think the thread was useless before the PC comments, why were you reading the thread and why did you respond (and half-cocked at that)?

Let it go or waste your time if you want. I can easily (and probably will right after posting this) use the ignore function and still add value to the thread. Not understanding why you're trying to dictate who posts what here, when you're not a mod...

And quit posting wikipedia links like they are the end-all-be-all of anything. Provide something a bit more substantial.

Sigh... you lack gaming experience and your arguments lack skill. Welcome to ignore list.

MATLAB certainly isn't "Windows-based", as it is also available for Linux.

Have you tried the WMware kit?

this could be the most useless and pointless post on LQ to date ....

Yeah mad...... What is the point to your post ? If you don't like Linux then go use your windows. If your programs don't run on Linux ..... Then why did you grt ubuntu in the first place ? Why not just stick with windows....... ? If windows is more "usefull" then go to windows !!!!!!!!

Maybe try using virtualbox ?
Ya.... Have fun.

Yes -- what to do? I've just weaned myself off Windows, previously needing it for PC Suite to get PIM data onto a cell phone. Thanks to Nokia, for only supporting my new phone under the dysfunctional Ovi Suite, I've made the break. Feels good. Will be nice when there's a full catalog of applications for Linux but, until then ...

i feel it is very weird to run another OS in virtualbox, you can't a full screen with nice resolutin, and you can feel its sluggishness.
I don't say windows is more superior, but u can't deny that it has the most support from hardware and software producers.
