I currently only have access to optimus laptop and play games which are unavailable in native on linux, will it make me more productive, stop wasting my time, get me laid? im speaking about some normie tier distro, not timesinks like arch

If you do nothing but game on your computer, don't install lincux

It worked for me. But stay away from debian and debian based distros because of steam.

I'm using Fedora and it's pretty great, cli is pretty easy

Also if you don't like gnome a few other great flavors to try are xfce, lxde, enlightenment, and plasma.

When I used to game too much an os devoted to study was a fantastic asset as a reboot forced me to reevaluate my time wasting

You can get steam up and running in any distro

Some of her expressions are hilarious, but she's done some pretty kinky shit.
>>
>>52376823
my day also consists of browsing web, writing papers in tex, watching movies, [spoiler]anime[/spoiler] , but all that after 10-12 hours of gaming

also i dont understand why you are all speaking about steam when i said i have nvidia optimus which supposedly is a pain in the ass to set up and still doesnt work very well
>>
>>52376799

I use mac and I don't play games much except dota 2 so yes I believe yes it will help you to not to play games.

No. You'll find a way.

Doubtful. You'll probably just waste more time browsing 4chan, watching porn, and ricing your desktop instead.
>>
well anon, if you are a big time waster like i used to (am) be, just switching won't make it, you will get another way of wasting your time.

But sometimes just this pushing you out of your comfort zone will be useful.

I would give it a try, what bad can it do? You already spend most of the day gaming, can't be worse than that.

>>52376960
Such as?

>>52377074
google it, first link is her Xvids page
>>
>>52376799
no, there are too many games on linux now, get freebsd, oh wait, you can install games on that too. get temple os.
>>
Get some self control instead you manchild
>>
Won't work, you'll just go back to using Windows.
What you should do is cheat at those games. Download a trainer or something. You only enjoy the games because of the challenge. If you cheat at them, you'll want to play them a lot less.

tried it as NYE.
installed Mint.

> oh vey, le steam
> whats that dota2? its free?

it helped a bit for me

>install ubuntu
>what is wine?
it worked for me. I play a lot less, since it's usually such a hassle to properly set up wine to enjoy muh games. But I don't need to go back to windows, because I can play anything on linux anyway.
>>
Your selections are diminished, so it's possible. But it's far more likely that you will get very good at WINE.

Maybe he means because of SteamOS the target on Debian for attacks will be larger?

>>52376799
It worked for me. Also I removed my graphics card and use my onboard Intel graphics only (I'm surprised at how well it works). The thing that might hold you back is time to kill so don't even bother unless you are setting yourself some goals. Part of the reason for me quitting was I wanted to go to the gym and get in shape, I have been going for over two years now and I'm looking pretty good and my company is going well. It's rewarding knowing I have made real life accomplishments. And Linux is still enough to quench my thirst for playing and tweaking my computer.

Arch is a really good distro, don't knock it, Pacman and aur is the shit. No fucking around and searching the web for PPAs and crap. If I can talk you in to using a good Arch based distro, install Antergos it is easy to install and move on with your life. I have found it more up to date (therefore with more features and less bugs) as well as more user friendly than Ubuntu.

Well shit, I didn't realise that.
So I can install steam linux games on tiny core?

switching distros isn't going to give you self control, that's something you've got to learn on your own.

That said, when I installed Manjaro, it had steam already installed. Still, I'm loving it so far. Incredibly stable and not ugly
>>
>>52378337
As long as you can get all the dependencies
>>
I don't even understand how one can game 10 hours on end. When I game for 30 minutes I feel drained already
>>
>>52379229
Feel like this myself unless I play with lads, literally end up wasting time on other random shit instead.
Was great being underage.

>>52376799
>get me laid
yeah man, since switching to linux i've been
drowning in the pussy.
>>
>>52376799
I think your problem with productivity in technological and sexual fields is overall procrastinating and not especially gaming.
>>
>>52379209
Why didnt valve just use tiny core? Les demanding system overall, my install+de uses 80mb ram.
