    There are so many things i want to say...

    Okay so someone turns around on the novatech forums and says "I didn't think Ubuntu could run 3d games, so maybe a lowly current 9800gt would do?".

    Sometimes i just want to bash my head against a wall, why are some people just so...ignorant?

    I even pointed out that it obviously can and mentioned a few big name ports like quake 4, doom 3 (rather than warsow for example which wouldn't be as known, if at all) etc and got the response i just knew was coming....http://forum.novatech.co.uk/showpost...4&postcount=19

    Some people frustrate me...

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    Just forget it, don't waste time on people who aren't really interested, just help people who really want to start using Linux.

    Heh. I wonder what his reaction would have been if you said you were readying your system for RAGE.

    I can see where he was going. If you're running Linux, you don't need a high-end GPU because all of the games available for Linux will work fine with a 9800gt. There is nothing he said that will make me bang my head against a wall. It was just a minor misunderstanding.

    I would have to disagree that what he's saying is wrong. Perhaps his way in saying it is slightly rude and "snickery"(is that even a word?), but he is right. Linux in general can't play MOST games. If you buy Call of Duty MW 2 at a store and bring it home, it won't install and run on Ubuntu. Most of the games it DOES play are one's that are free, and some people would rather pay which usually leads to a better game. Not bashing linux, i love it, but when it comes to gaming windows wins it over as far as game compatability. Just the way it is. And is the only reason i dual boot.
