    Maybe soon it'll be viable to go with Ubuntu or something similar for a gaming rig. Can't stand the direction MS is developing Windows 10 towards.

    Cherry on the cake is if they do nvidia drivers for linux that run gsync on freesync. #iwantthemoononastick

    This looks promising to me and, I've been doing some digging and it looks like my printer and soundcard are going to work under Linux.

    Now I just need to pull my finger out...

    That's the hard part!

    Musr resist urge to comment - gnnnnnrrrr * bites knuckle *

    But yeah, I know what you mean. Linux and the steam beta wine proton gubbins have made it to my laptop but never yet to the desktop. It's just a matter of doing.

    "A recursive acronym for 'Wine Is Not an Emulator'"

    Really? Not "Windows In Non-native Environments"?

    Those interested in this item may also wish to investigate Lutris - a game manager that uses custom WINE scripts to make modern Windows games work on Linux, even still-developing ones like Star Citizen.
