    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I went from DOS to OS/2 Warp, and in 94/95 started using Slackware. Still using Slackware today, along with Suse 9.1 Pro and Kubuntu, which I just installed on my brand new laptop.

    I tried Windows once for 2 days. It's a stupid unreliable game!!

    ...and that's different from windows how?



    With Windows, you have a larger installed base, but not much control over what's really going on. Take your pick.

    help IS to be found, you just must look in the right places..IF you can't find help here on these forums ( unlikely but it could happen),,you can find help in IRC in many places..

    irc.freenode.net | #lemmings < for starters...lots of decent knowledgeable people hang there and all willing to help at any time you need it...tiny example but thats one place ;( I should know I hang there all the time with good solid friends ..longtime linux veterans)

    I can't quite switch completely until I find a way to replace this stupid msaccess, but hey my bad for choosing it to begin with ! .)

    cheers and good luck

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've been using Linux now for about two weeks but I still need Windows XP for games. I only play RTS games like Age Of Kings, Europa Universalis II, SimCity 4 Rush Hour, Civilization 3 Conquests, The Sims 2 etc... I can't get anything other than solataire to run in Wine and I don't have the knowledge/expertise/patience to try Cedega/VMware and I don't want to spend money on something I don't even know works.

    The problem is, is that RTS games (with the exception of The Sims 2) have not and will never be ported to the gaming consoles, which means I'm pretty much stuck with MS-Windows INDEFINITELY. For example, I want Civilization IV when it comes out and know sure that it will never be released on a console. I think gaming consoles are good for FPS games and that's it.

    Furthermore, I need to be able to mod games but I've heard console games cannot be modded--which is probably another reason why RTS games are not made for consoles because EVERYONE mods them. Even if they could be modded, they probably don't share the same data structures (like EA Games DBPF) which means that a mod made for a PC version of the game won't work with a PlayStation version of the game. This is a huge problem because I play heavily modded SimCity and Civilization games.

    Getting rid of Windows is like a toilet that won't flush.
