Nothing "comes" with Linux. You just install it from somewhere, when it doesn't come with you GNU/Linux distribution.

Get out of the consumerist mindset, Linux doesn't come in a nice, big, mostly empty box at BestBuy. It's all free!

Linux is just a KERNEL. All the rest, called "GNU/Linux", is a vast open source project developed to make Linux work on almost any damn device and interface with you, the user.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34394289


Linux is not an operating system. It's a kernel.

It has no backdoors like Windows does, it's ENCRYPTED, it is ENTIRELY open source which means others can add to it and make it better. You really can't ask for anything more, Linux is the shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34394289


What do you mean "it's ENCRYPTED"? What's encrypted? I suspect that you don't have much background in cryptography.

Re: Linux is AWESOME!!!
I have been a Linux fan for years. I just don't understand why people put up with Windows. Stupid.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10795934


Because WINE wouldn't run any modern photoshop versions "good enough" & GIMP still lacks functionality making some work much less efficient.

But that's what VMs are for I suppose. And WINE has improved enough to get CS6 working nearly perfectly. Just don't try using a tablet with it our be prepared for some patching.

And I'm sure hard core gamers would have issues running linux. Steam might help, but its too early to tell and the Steam client is pretty buggy due to piss poor [modern] graphics support on some hardware. This is also getting better, but I'm not a gamer so I as long as everything else is working, I'm happy.

I haven't tried openSUSE in years, but I've heard good things about the latest release (err 12.3) esp with YaST becoming speedy.

Anyway, there are reasons people don't use Linux for specific things and it has nothing to do with stupidity. It has a lot to do with compatibility and availability. The only people that show marked stupidity are the ones sacrificing A+ grade quality for C grade alternatives *just because*.

I have to partially agree with you there, only because in reality, Linux & FreeBSD both lack serious video editing capabilities. I DO run Premiere Pro and AFX in VirtualBox without much issue, but the I/O options become somewhat limited - I have to capture natively in FBSD, then convert over to a more Premiere-friendly format, and lose my option for direct monitor output. It's okay for me now that I don't have clients sitting over my shoulder, but would seriously dampen my efforts if I were back in my old edit suite :)

Re: Linux is AWESOME!!!
Ah! Linux. I do miss it. Ran Red Hat for a while and then Mandriva. Loved having my desktop on a rotatable cube and being able to do everything with shell scripts (took me back to my old Amiga days). Currently only running Windoze because the CUDA drivers and Octane Render seem to run well on Vista. Must get round to buying a new hard drive and have dual-boot system again.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37243549


What you talking about? All the Nvidia drivers and 64 bit Octane are available for Linux. Just search.

Vista? Yikes!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37238906


Yeah, I know but there were some instability issues when I first got this machine so I left it as it was. I could re-partition and dual boot from the one hard drive but I'd prefer to go the route of dedicating a complete drive to Linux. I do still have my old Linux drive laying around in a box somewhere as we moved house quite recently and haven't finished unpacking. It's been in storage for two years though and for the £50 a new 1TB drive will cost I might as well just buy a new one. It's really just a matter of finding time now, if I'm honest. I'm tempted to have a go at an LFS project rather than get a ready made distro. I installed Linux on an Amiga many years ago and whilst it was a pain in the arse it was a lot of fun too and a great sense of achievement. Shame I destroyed the machine with 3 weeks later. Oh look... Now I'm pining for Linux and an Amiga... Got a few of them boxed up somewhere too though... rockon

I was setting up Windows the other day and it took me 6 hours to get everything the way I needed it. (codecs, programs, security, etc.)

Messing with this, tweaking that. UGH.

Went to OpenSuse and everything is already there with the OS.

And I mean everything.

Torrent client, CD/DVD burning software, media players, an onboard software store, Firefox, widgets, apps and anything else you may need.

Took me about 30 minutes to set it all up.

You can create a bootable flash drive and run Linux from that so I see no reason you couldn't run it from an external hard drive. There's plenty of Live CDs though. Why not try one of them to get a taste for it. Most will give you the option to install it permanently if you like it, although care should be taken if you want to keep your old OS too. I personally had no trouble installing from a Mandriva Linux Live CD and keeping my Windows XP setup intact but I installed Linux to a separate drive. Installing both on one drive is a little trickier (unless you have some empty partitions) but can be done.

OpenSuse has a setting specifically for playing games.

Or, just run Wine.

It is a Windows emulator and will mount and run most Windows programs on Linux. Also check out playonlinux.

Not all games or emulators run on linux, as such i'm stuck with windows atm, that said if your not a gamer, i'd definitely use linux.

Re: Linux is AWESOME!!!
Linux isnt too old yet, im on it since Kernel 0.96 for m86k on Amiga.

Maybe 15 years ?

We can do nearly everything on Linux what a hardminded Windows user can barely understand, but thats vice versa, im sure.

Windows is a excellent games plattform and over all, the corporate quality assurance is by far better, but Linux is for the real computing and creative development and is still growing that since 2 or 3 years every noob should be able to handle it.

Linux is open and grants maximum freedon.

Wine makes a lot of native Windows software a reality on Lunux but has its borders as well.

I love to see it getting better year by year ^^

I currently LOVE Ubuntu 12.04 precise!

some great programs to get are K3B, K9Copy, Transmageddon, and DeVeDe. With those 4 you can copy, burn, convert just about anything into anything else and burn multiple formats..

All with no copy protection software getting in your way.
