View Poll Results: How many Multiboot with there Computers?
I wonder how many made the switch, im so sick of windows, but the only reason i keep it is to play 7 games of mines.
does wine support games? i play:
Delta Force 2
Quake 3 Arena
Gabriel knight 3
and can i download counter-strike for linux for free? i got the Windows half life game.
What should you choose if you do both? I have 6 computers, 1 dedicated Windows desktop, 1 dedicated linux desktop, 2 that muli-boot various linux distros, various windows versions, and AtheOS. I also have a dedicated Windows laptop, and a dedicated linux laptop.
I still multiboot, but I guess just for troubleshooting purposes anymore. For a while I used to for P2P, but then I found dcgui and haven't since. So now if I do it'll be for troubleshooting, to see if a problem is OS specific, or if it's my machine causing the problem
I have a 486 that I'm installing linux on (pure linux), I have a PII 450 with Windows 98SE 2nd, and I have an Athlon 1500+ running Red Hat 8.0 and Windows XP. I dig the dual boot thing. Especially dual hard drives, I do that on my athlon.
I voted 'yes' because my primary computer does dual boot, using Partition Commander rather than lilo. I sometimes play games which only run on Windows. However, I do have a pure linux box as well, P166 with a 14" NEC monitor, which I play around with when the mood strikes.
I have absolutely no reason to duel boot my systems. One of them is running Mandrake 9.0 and the other has Slackware. I only play 2 games, one is Counter-Strike (Which wineX runs flawlessly) and nethack.
I was dual booting until this morning, when an AVG update trashed my WinMe partition :eek!
If was still a full time win user, I'd be back to the restore disk (yeah, this has happened before) because there's no way of knowing what went wrong. But this incident has just confirmed me in my determination to rearrange the entire hd and ditch win altogether. In other words, I don't care that WinMe won't boot any more, and I can't be bothered to try to troubleshoot it. Linux has so many advantages I never want to see that C:\ prompt again.
OTOH I may be asking for help with booting multiple distros some time in the near future
