    My Windows v7 is to be discontinued or support by Microsoft is ending on January 14, 2020, so I have no savings to buy any other PC or PowerPC RISC 6000 server with workstation? I am starting to save now until after 12 months to buy what I want and need that will be affordable with what I will save? THINKCENTER is available for 320 dollars or more. This is made by LENOVO

    We all know that macOS is not for gaming so that is surely out of this match
    Edit: Btw apple is introducing their gaming store first before gaming hardware

    I not agree with your view of linux because games usually are desinged for windows (or consoles) and have to be shortly make compatible to a linux distribution. This is the priblem... Linux would actually be the best choice because linux is standartized. There is a powerful graphics libary, a process manager and all hardware is understand and compatible the same way as blocks. The filesystem is more effective and all has it place... If you are comparing a windows game on windows with on suse linux it's obvious linux will lose. If valve continues making games compatibe to linux kernels and you have steamos compared to windows with a game that was designed to be compatible or the company would invest more time / money for making it compatible you will see linux actually will run better because the kernel can handle hardware better with more performance. Windows is coded too complicated that's why windows lags and crushes still more than linux... On linux all processes even the graphical user interface itself is dedicated and has its own rights and can be stopped, restarted and so on... You'll almost never need to restart linux because you can disable all processes and here is why I had explained it: linux can be so small it runs on old machines because you only need to run what you actually need. On windows you don't need about 80% of the system processes that cannot be disabled and taking space and cpu power. Sure in this case you need to know a bit more of the system but in fact this solves in you need less hardware for the same game with linux and to me it means linux is better for gaming.

    We are all here because you can infact go wrong with windows, it's sad that Google can't stop spying, in order to make an operating system that can compete with Microsoft. Gaben of Valve doesn't seem to be trying hard enough to make a viable alternative to windows.
    They are dedicating an entire O/S to gaming and they are still failing like a boss, between AMD, Nvidia, and Intel, steam accounts for a lot of their sales, maybe go to them as Microsoft has and make some deals.

      I like it... Linux was a bit complicated because the publishers feared they must show their source code... That's rarely the case nowadays and even if there are some special interfaces in the program it's possible to compile different binary versions by a script at once...

      True. It’s slightly more expensive than windows PC’s but, it’s worth it.

    • N Kliesow
      N Kliesow Month ago

      Not all... "Mac" as linux based on unix... Both have strong focus on security by privileges and know their customers orientation... Windows was (once) an out of the box system before they started selling all free seperatly (office for ex.) so window preconfigured all things the user (companies) may want to use that contains also all network ports of the system programs... Apple was a bit more secure by expecting the user knows what to do and linux topped it then by disabling all that can cause security problems the user must configure all itself before enable it... Luckily linux comes nowadays with all programs for work preinstalled (openoffice etc.) but keep ports closed...

    • boston naviaux

      Mac OS is hard to “hack” because it’s details on the os are hidden.

    Windows is indeed the easier take here. You can "just run" games in there. You can circunvent every problem you get with somewhat easy steps (except stutter problems because some ultra latency oriented things windows do)
    Linux is somewhat as easy as windows can get when Valve is involved. Linux isn't hard to use but it is incredible hard to configure and fix broken things. It isn't a latency oriented system so Linux will show frames behind windows. Gamepad schemes can be ultra hard to tweek. But! Games will certainly have a better frame cadence in Linux even if you are running it on proton or wine.
    So it's a trade off: Easy life, simple to get working at any condition go to windows. Hard time learning curve with lots of tweeks per game and some neat near perfect results but with a little delay go to Linux.
    You can also run a Windows VM inside Linux with a dedicated GPU but this is too hard to acomplish in the way KVM works nowadays and the performance will be a little worser than bare metal.

    • N Kliesow
      N Kliesow Month ago

      Linux is easier to fix than windows... It's just uncommon to you ;-) linux reports all things the kernel or any systemprocess does and reports warninfs and errors by details all in the standartized /var/log folder you can see where the problem is and if you cannot look on the internet linux will help you by suggesting what you can do to fix it (clearly not as windows)

      Lol xD windows users who disable the updates because they are annoyed of it and risk more unsecurity windiws already has... Btw linux will always upgrade if you want to... You'll have a small icon there are updates on some display managers as kde plasma...

      Thats the problem I always see... All people I know talking bad about linux think there is just a textfield like a retro console and you have to type in any command and then after an hour the whole city black out... I don't know why there are so many people with windows is best in their head just because they grew up only knowing this and have a view of linux which they never tested... It's like travelling in another country / state... Do you ever expirienced a proof of any or all stereotypes of that region?

    linux = servers, don’t even try to game with this cause it’s bad, but it’s open source and it’s great for servers

      Linux can be a lot worser if you don't know what you're doing. But if you take the time to learn it, then it'll be better for internet and office use. Games is somewhat as easy as windows can get when Valve is involved. But are various trade offs: Linux isn't a latency oriented system as Windows is so games will present a little extra delay, gamepad configuration is very hard outside default settings and things outside steam are Jumanji... But you do get games running more smoth than windows even those with less performance.

      Who of you ever used more as 1 of those? ;-) I used all 3 intense and linux various distributions... I don't understand why linux always is seen by others as the one os... If you take the kernel itself there would not be any os beating linux... If you compare each distribution you will have winners and losers but thats the point why valve customized their steamos system based on linux... Why saddle from windows to linux? Because linux is easier if an administrator helped you configuring it... You'll need to decide what you want to do when you choose a distribution right as the os as the topic of the video... There is a linux is you want a server, there is one if you gave a business, there is even one to test the security strengh of your network and machines as also there is a linux for beginners and for gaming... Windows is not specified directly whereas microsoft knows private customers most likely will play games but as the most windows users only know where to start the computer and fear these updates windows started early to enable all for all purposes what cost many performance for nothing... Linux IS specialited and uses right that what you need...

      Windows is just the only one you have to pay for... That doesn't proof anything but think about what they do with the money and where the others get money from ;-) a hint windows is the only one who spys you...
      Additionally Linux uses less system ressources and manage hardware better... The only reason why games on windows sometimes run faster is they were originally desined for windows and linux doesn't know propitary things like directx since opengl is better and standard... Directx is easier because windows spends your money in making itself incompatible... Funfact: where windows is incompatible to its previous edition (even with compatibility mode) programs linux is compatible to all ;-)
