Rocksmith

They have got to port Rocksmith. It's listed as platinum status on winehq but I couldn't get the dang thing working. I put together a beautiful new computer in my bedroom for office work and playing Rocksmith with ubuntu as the os and I couldn't get the dang game working. I had to resort to Windows because I just couldn't spend the time necessary to get Rocksmith working under ubuntu.

And even then M$ keeps changing file formats to break "other office suites" and implementors have to reverse engineer that new format and adapt the OpenOffice/LibreOffice code to work with it again.

A wish past due - Win7 UI clone

Could we have been saved from nanny surveillance state Win10? So many Linux forks of various UIs that go nowhere in terms of market share. The "community" is unwilling to make this simple effort. Clone the Win7 UI and ease of use. Stop the "find the hidden geek-tweak mystery" game with half UI and half cmd line interface and sys mgmt turning away new users by the millions.

Time is awastin' folks. jan 2020 is looming. Half the user base of MS Windows are still on W7. They hate the stink finger fone interface adapted to the nanny data mining system called Win10. Are you going to throw away this opportunity? YES OF COURSE. I don't think you are going to pluck something out of thin air and get more intuitive than the UI the 80%-90% of the world has been using for 20 yrs.

Graphical ease of use - computer & drive storage mgmt
Graphical ease of use file mgmt
compatibility with nvidia drivers
easy adaptability to secure VM
easy adaptability sandboxed isolation
40% of the battle is already won with secure FF browsing + extensions

Win10 The march of the brain dead surrender sheeple - You Linux Ubu Devs could have created a better world. You blew it. Linux distros are still a farcical incomprehensible mess after twenty years. I really don't want to hear all the flippin' foo-fraw - You asked the question.

Some of us came here to get away from the windows way of doing things. I occassionally need to boot into win7 - dumbed down the UI might be, "easy" it isn't - at least for my value of "easy".

Anybody that squeamish probably shouldn't be trying to administer a computer?

Got them already - and CLI for when that's the best tool.

Linux isn't defined by Ubuntu, and are you saying you want ms windows ported to Linux?

I concur. The Windows 7 U.I. was is and is holding the title of the best U.I. of all time. Linux needs to get with the times and go with a 100% G.U.I. option. There are some Linux distros that are close to 100% G.U.I. but not quite 100% yet as the command line gets thrown at you when you ask for help like it's the early 1980's. The small increase in Linux as a desktop is because of Windows 10 that is Spyware/Malware. It's the the command line fetish that holds back Linux. The command line interface is so 8-bit computing.

I have used LibreOffice and I appreciate the developers efforts for providing a wonderful Opensource and free office suite, but its a tiny bit lacking with respect to formatting and alignments when working on professional documents. I was doing a job search a few months back, updated my resume in LibreOffice and saved it as a MS compatible docx format. Later that day, opening up the document in MS word from my wife's laptop, it was just not properly aligned. Unfortunately, even though I hate using proprietary MS based office, I had to end up using MS word to finish up my resume and forward it to the recruiters (as of course they will be using MS word when viewing the doc and any misalignment might not give a good first impression on my part).


Though, I agree with you and highly doubt MS would open source their current cash cow or even help porting the software for GNU/Linux. I still believe MS is evil and all their recent generosity towards open source is just a PR stunt with a bigger selfish motive in their mind.

They have done this again and again over the years. They get friendly. Then they "invest." Then they take the company over and/or steal their idea/product, or tie it up in litigation and drive it out of business. It would seem no one has learned.

They're still doing it, just more by proxy. Look at the ongoing software patent litigation done by their partners or even their program "Azure IP [sic] Advantage" which loads NPEs up with software patents and sets them loose against M$ competitors in the hosting space.

As for applications ported to GNU/Linux, I'd really like to see some decent reference manager with Z39.50 support similar to EndNote.

To ehartman, who is clearly a troll; I am a Linux user, but have to administer Windows at work. I can assure you that I have to use the command line quite often. In fact, when your Windows system gets Ransomware, it's one of the first things you have to do. You might also consider asking why Windows has now introduced the Linux command line to windows.

Most Linux distributions are for people willing to put in some effort to get a system that works how they want it to. That pretty much mandates, for example, use of the command line.
For those not wanting that kind of thing there's a small Linux system with a tiny market share that you probably won't have hear of or seen called Android. It was specifically designed for people who don't want to bother about how their computer works and just want to use it. There's it's sister OS Chrome OS also which is similar but different and, also, converging.
As to NVIDIA drivers -- I've been using Linux for over a decade now and NVIDIA drivers have always worked for me.
