Games I'm not 100% sure this is actually word-for-word, but alas. "In a presentation at Ubuntu Developer Summit currently going on in Denmark, Drew Bliss from Valve said that Linux is more viable than Windows 8 for gaming. Windows 8 ships with its own app store and it is moving away from an open platform model." I feel like a broken record by now but here we go again: keep an eye on Valve, even if you're not into games. This is the company pushing NVIDIA and AMD to improve their Linux support, with enough clout and name to actually get stuff done. Valve doesn't mess around.

I am not a "pirate" no. But f*ckwit idiots would be to pay for MS when more important things are priority. These are idiots selling a low-quality product. They are not enthusiasts doing excellence and brilliance. But ofcourse you are a corporate whore, singing advertising tunes.

Enthusiasts DO LINUX. That is what intelligent people like.

Ofcourse there is a resolution on the perception of people too. Yours probably is 0.1x0.1 pixels so not much would be understood.

Anyone sane here can read this, and other things on my blog, if you are tired of the feebles of f*ckwits who seem to find other retarded people online, and speak completely against sanity and sense, and verbally attack, rumorize or other, good people.

Peace Be With You.

LOL, you know there are actually fewer idiots there than here. But with mainstream popularity, even fuckwits like you are on Osnews, fierecly arguing your backward opinion. Completely against all sense. And guess what I look up the profile of these idiots, and they advertise "gay". Some guy in #beos said he was a leader of a youth gay club on some school campus. Another female in there ran a gay club in Norway. The woman critiquing me is the one with the gay in her profile. You don`t look quite well yourself either. OSNEWS loves beos. It`s ridiculous, it should be GAY OS News. For men with stiff nipples. For REAL hackers, you are the feeblest idiots ever. Not that I think you`d ever gain a mind to understand that. Go sing your corporate song, not realizing there are people like me in there, (in pain) doing your OS. Fuckwit.

In case you haven't noticed friend, this kid is what we in the biz call an ID10T, he's a sad pathetic little fanboi that thinks because he got some pre-pwned copy of Windows off of TPB and couldn't get it to run it MUST be MSFT's fault, it couldn't be the fact that the guy couldn't catch a clue with a 30 foot net.

And if he thinks Linux holds up? He is welcome to step right up and take the challenge! I will take what is considered "the worst MSFT OS of the decade" Windows VISTA, he can have ANY regular distro, that means something actually designed to be used as a desktop, not some stripped down server OS, that was released the same month as Vista RTM. We'll load it in a dual boot, I'll even let him use CLI to install the drivers since at this point he is the system builder and NOT the customer, then we'll patch both to current using ONLY THE GUI..

I've made this challenge on dozens of forums and NONE will step up, wanna know why? because i've actually done this same trick with ALL of the popular distros and in every single case while Vista will go through the service packs and hundreds of patches with 100% working drivers and software the Linux distros? BROKEN, ALL OF THEM.

This is the "dirty little secret" they refuse to admit, just look at what has changed since Vista in the community darling Ubuntu...ALSA for Pulse (yeah that was brilliant), and Gnome 2 for Gnome 3 followed by Unity, not to mention major surgery to the wireless subsystems.

So I'm sorry but the fanboi can spew his dirty foul mouth in nerdrage ALL he wants, it won't make straw into gold and it won't change the fact that even at HALF the support cycle of a typical Windows release it simply falls apart. You'll end up spending more time Googling for fixes, going to forums, and trying to find workarounds for all the broken software than you will actually enjoying the thing. Meanwhile I can fire up a game from a decade ago, with a 4 year old GPU and 3 year old CPU on Win 7 X64 patched to latest and what happens? it "just works" time after time.
