(shut up tim, this thread doesnt need a title)

i have used linux before. there are no good linux programs and games dont run. wine sucks. all the programs are in development and run slow. the kernel is... slow although it doesnt crash. i used to sit in front of linux and think about all the stuff i could do with it. the problem is that you cant do anything with it. except networking stuff, and programming on it is pointless because noone would be buying your programs because you dont write windows programs on linux. unless if you are dummy.

this concludes why i love and hate linux with a vengance.

::grins:: That's one way to get some attention.
Do you have a question for us to try and answer? I can help you get Unreal Tournament 2003 working on your linux box. Or Quake 1,2, or 3. Or Doom, or Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Or Thief. Or any of a few hundred other games I can get to run natively or through Wine/WineX. Not the best answer, but I didn't go to linux to start playing games. If I wanted to only play games, I'd use a console. Hell, my Dreamcast runs NetBSD for me most of the time.

Wine DOES suck. But it's a nice option for those of us who HAVE to run a particular pain-in-the-butt application on our beloved OS. The "games don't run for shit" comment, I couldn't agree with less. I get higher frame rates in all of my games on my linux box, and I am an expert in system tuning in Windows, and NOT an expert (yet) in system tuning for Unix/Linux.

If you want ease of use, and quick installation of programs, wander off and try out debian some time. So far, I have not found a single, solitary thing I want to do in Windows, that I can not do in linux. The configuration is usually a little bit of a pain, but hey... the things that worth it usually end up being that way.

If you want some help with your games, or an app, or Wine, or whatever, mate, just let me know. I'll be glad to help. I get frustrated with this damned penguin, too, sometimes. I've even through about backsliding, and going back to Windows. I have to cross myself and do ten hail Tuxes, for forgiveness, though, and come back to the little OS that could.

As you can see this thread is being closed. This would have only caused trouble in the long run.

If your unhappy with Linux that is one thing but this is a site that is here to help, not listen to complaints which can come off as trolling. Sorry.

PS. And for the future, better and more helpful thread titles should be used, yours was unhelpful and didn't even cover what your thread was about, but I guess that doesn't matter now, since its closed.
