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.

Enthusiasts DO LINUX. That is what intelligent people like.


WOW ... so why is there so many idiots on the Ubuntu Forums?

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.

Dudes, and his three friends who moderated me down, and apparently ran out of points. Fucking get a job at microsoft, carrying a diploma around, saying "ms expert". You`d don`t have to speak the truth or do a sensible thing the rest of your life. Just be a complete fuckwit and proud of it. When people ask how to improve performance on windows you say "no no no not those services", and get payed for it. WTF. the gig of your life. Your very very meaningless life.

I love how this guy seems to believe that sexual orientation has anything to do with technical skills. It's about as believable as one's taste in the colour of socks has anything to do with technical skills.

He also tends to mention "cottaging" quite often in conjunction with mentions of gay as if all gay people were somehow participating in this "cottaging." I have no idea where he has gotten such ideas. I had never even heard of the term before he mentioned it and I had to google what it means! ;)

There is something tragically humorous about him and how he seems to have this extremely twisted view of the world around him and his own importance. I'd love to know how he's come to be like that, must be quite a fascinating tale! At any rate he makes me laugh and that's a good thing, ain't it? ;)

Says the homophobic bible (or is it Quran?) thumper. Oh the irony.

For men with stiff nipples


You do realize that straight men get stiff nipples when aroused by a woman, right?
Of course you don't. You've never been with one.

For REAL hackers, you are the feeblest idiots ever.

Real hackers don't give a shit about anyone's sexual orientation.

Not that I think you`d ever gain a mind to understand that.


If you mean we'll never know what you're talking about that's probably true. That's not due to any fault of our own though, it's because you don't make a lick of sense.

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.

You are garbage f--kwits ;) The level I am on, you will never understand. Look forward to a life as a retard, slaving away to any f--kwits whim.

No wonder people like Hitler could tell the masses complete insanity, people like you are too retarded to know the difference.

A satan like yourself, with glowing red cheeks from idiocy.

Basscunt, will probably be first off to the cottage. People will be sitting in chairs waiting to fuck him in the ass on the toilet where a hundred men shat.
