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.

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.

Translation.."Be amazed at my tiny penis!"

Please, you couldn't catch a cold, much less a clue. you are a sad, pathetic little fanboi that wouldn't know how to do the job of a Best Buy employee, much less anything that required skills.

Go back to 4chan, we won't miss you.

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.

Interesting thoughts you have.

With all the homophobia and sexual stuff you connect to technical wisdom you must be missing something. Perhaps recap your hatred and think about whether it could be that you are gay/lesbian, but just don't know it yet, and therefore have some currently unmeetable sexual desires. Or just make those cottage-ass-f--ks come true, obviously you are thinking a lot about this. But maybe you are missing _any_ humanoid contact IRL, no skin-on-skin-experience or even kisses, in which case you should reorganise your daily routine and get out; plug off the computer for at least one month. You will see, this inter-human-stuff is like snake oil. Or maybe you just fail a lot at what you do and make up for that by trolling in random forums, in the hope it makes you feel better. Dunno.

But you definitely have to do something about your life.

P.S.: Don't waste your words on me. Your patters are easy to understand, and I already know you will be writing down some permutation of "f--kwit", "faggot", "cottage", "ass-f--k", "gay".
