If you are REALLY big fan of gaming and that's something you can't live without, then you'd better stick to Windows. Although some games run under wine and some does runs smooth, NOT ALL are supported. As with any other thing, having a layer of application such as wine or emulation, it takes resources.Originally Posted by qhiiyr
That would be my prefere choice if I were you.There's also the option of having two operating systems installed, and just using Windows for gaming.
That's the question ONLY YOU can answer. Everyone is differnet. It may be right for me but it may not be right for you. Same thing with other stuff in life, you may be okay with Toyota Prius but I NEED my Chevy Tahoe.Mainly what I want to know is, would it be worth switching to Linux and sacrificing these and other programs and games?
If you have time, extra disk space and a little patient, then you are good to go.I've always been fond Linux, (after all, it is "the programmer's OS) but now that I'm seriously thinking about using it, I can't see any big advantages.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I really don't know where to go from here.
Even if Linux doesn't work out for you, what have you got to loose? The time you spent and the effort you put in are for your learning experience. Would you, say a few years down the road, will regret not having tried Linux even if you had a chance? Then let your instint takes you.
After all, it's not like buying a piece of hardware. You can always wipe Linux clean and start over.
