I read one page. 9 - Gaming. That killed it for me. It's a damn shame for all the alternative OS guys out there that gaming is so Windows-centric.

which means that gamers need at least one powerful computer with windows on it. not just powerful for the games, but for the OS as well. i dont understand why microsoft wouldnt release some sort of barebone windows.. or maybe at least some type of simple OS that is uber efficient and is designed just for gaming rather than flashy pointless programs and widgets that take up a half a gig of RAM.

Re: 30 Days with Ubuntu Linux

Its awesome man. I got the Beryl deal on the laptop. Basically Aeros but without the retarded system requirements to run it. I got it running on my laptop. It's sweet.

Sure the gaming is way behind. However I'd rather just buy one Windows OS for gaming (Vista) and then load all the other computers in my house with Linux. Which is what I am going to do.

Maybe not directly... But it facilitates gaming. I'm also hoping that one day it will be another IL2 capable machine.

Re: 30 Days with Ubuntu Linux

I bet you could get IL2 to run good on Linux since it is OpenGL
