Some of the native games are inferior: good luck playing multiplayer on some versions of borderlands and saints row with people on windows clients. Getting vortex working was too much of a pain in the ass for Fallout 4 mods. Vermintide 2 (the game most similar to our political situation) and Rainbow Six Siege don't work in Linux at all.

Yes. Some games don't work but the vast majority do. That was my point. Also proton can out perform Windows (by a lot) if you have everything configured correctly.

Also, my gaming monitor is a 21:9 and good luck getting widescreen to work through wine/proton, unless someone knows how to get Flawless Widescreen to work in proton/wine/steam.

Not sure what you're on about here... This just works out of the box for me.

Linux gaming is also a fight when you're running multiple monitors on multiple resolutions. PayDay 2 played very well on Linux, but it'd always start at 3400x1400 on my 2560x1400 monitor and using gnome/kde keybindings to move it didn't help much because it is still confused on what its supposed to be on. If I removed the Windows VM, and used all three monitors for Linux, then it'd even be a worse mess because my primary monitor on Linux is a 4k monitor.

I don't have multiple monitors. No comment.

I know Valve tried to get Linux gaming to work, and they're still at it somewhat, but SteamOS and SteamMachines weren't a success.

SteamOS was destined to die. It's based on a dirt old version of Debian with slow graphics drivers. You really need the latest kernel/mesa drivers for good performance. (Not to mention it basically made your PC an expensive console.) Steam Machines weren't priced competitively enough to break into the console segment and the controller was garbage. Valve is still heavily investing in Linux. They continue to make massive strides with Proton, they're working on getting Easy Anti Cheat to work on Linux, they heavily contribute to the Intel and AMD gpu drivers, and they're writing a new performance optimized shader compiler (ACO) for Mesa. Which I've tried the beta and it makes a massive difference.

That's not even a thing anymore. Although GhostBSD and TrueOS exist and are basically the same thing. Regardless, it's still the same OS and it wouldn't solve the problem of not having any drivers.

Hmm my gpu runs better under Linux? Are you using VCO and gamemoded? Also protondb has 70% of games at gold or above (and silver is playable).

Have you looked into Proton? Check protondb to see if it's compatible. There's less overhead and you'll probably get better performance than a VM.

Do you know a good tiling window manager or desktop environment? So far gTile is my favorite with GNOME and I don't have time at the moment to relearn something like xmonad.

Ehh, I'm a KDE guy. I know there's a KDE window tiling extension but I don't know how good it is.

The performance governor? That was like insta death on Arch. Lol.

On Arch I was getting 4:30-ish hours of battery life set to powersave. On Fedora I'm getting 6 hours on ondemand. Arch set to ondemand was giving me 2 hours of battery life. It's a massive difference.

Yeah I understand a lot of people don't like them but the results speak for themselves.

It has better battery life then other distros even if they're both set to "ondemand" (the default on most distros including Fedora). Basically they compile the kernel with a newer GCC, enable a bunch of power saving kernel flags (that most distros have disabled for whatever reason), and they reduced the amount of daemons running in the background (having Systemd managing it instead). They also tweaked a bunch of AHCI settings.

Nothing against *BSD but it's not usable as a desktop OS. I can't even get any of them to boot on my hardware without crashing. Not that it would matter because it doesn't have any drivers for my hardware anyway. (Also iOS is Mach+FreeBSD.)

OpenSUSE isn't bad but it doesn't have all the kernel optimizations that Fedora has. That's why the battery life is so good on Fedora without sacrificing performance.

  1. Best battery life out of any distro. (Out of the box.)
  2. Stable but bleeding edge.
  3. Introduces new technologies that become standard in Linux. (Fedora 32 is replacing PulseAudio with PipeWire.)
  4. One of the best KDE implementations.
  5. Backed by Red Hat (IBM).

Forked from de-googled chromium and has a decent built in adblocker along with tor support. (Also the owner of Brave software is the inventor of JavaScript and got kicked out of Mozilla because he has some conservative views.)

Yeah they should get whatever ddos solution 8kun is using. (Apparently they built their own.)

I did the same but mostly because the switch sub was absolutely cancer. If go on there while also posting on T_D they'll dig through your post history and post it. Then you'll get down voted into oblivion.

Yeah, I don't get why you'd vote for a guy who literally admitted he's just saying what you want to hear.

Can you link some? I'd love to see the idiocy.

Maybe you were looking at new reddit? This place is exactly the same as old reddit. https://old.reddit.com/

Seriously, /news/ is literally just shills posting propaganda. I still enjoy the TV, comics, and gaming boards. (Even if half the posts are bait.)

Agreed, someone should sent it to him.
