if you give me valid reasons why i should remove windows 10 and switch to linux i'll install either arch of gentoo to switch to linux

dual boot; use gnu/linux as daily OS and switch over to windows whenever you feel like gaming for a bit

No fuck off.

If you don't have a reason to switch, don't.

>>51549940
dual booting sucks though.

come on, there has to be someone passionate about linux thats willing to go into detail why linux is superior to windows and worth ditching gaming for.

If you can't game, what are you gonna use that supercomputer for? Might as well downgrade to a fucking raspberry pi if you're just gonna use linux.

kvm/qemu for all your gaymen needs. I'm running arch for day to day work, use the win7 vm when I want to launch something gpu consuming. Literally best of both worlds.

Fuck you I know this is bait but here you go: If you have multiple hard drives it's really fucking easy to dual boot. Just set the hard drive with the OS you like the most to the default boot drive. If you want the other one, press whatever button your BIOS uses to interrupt it when starting up and pick the other hard drive. If you need to partition a single drive that still works. If you want to go full Linux but can't let go of your games, look up VGA passthrough and Virtualization and see if your hardware will work with it. If you can virtualize it correctly you can use Linux but game with about 95% of the preformance of using Windows in the virtualized game. Fair warning virtualization can be a pain in the ass but it's worth if it you want to go full Linux.

>>51549899
But linux is what you use when you can't afford a machine capable of running windows or games.
>>
>>51550619
I thought dual booting was better for performance since vm has overhead?
>>
You don't even have to give up gaming, just use emulators or play games that get Linux ports. You will miss out on a few games, but you don't have to give up altogether. Also, Wine is a thing, you can definitely run some Windows-only games on that. The "games or Linux" meme has to die.
>>
>>51550624
>but game with about 95% of the preformance
Why don't I believe this?
>>
>>51550719
The performance loss is minuscule if you do gpu passthrough on a proper virtual machine, rather than some shit like virtualbox. If you don't believe, how about do some research?
>>
The time you're playing games is basically wasted. You're sitting still gaining nothing of value while your body atrophies. If you install Linux you'll gain valuable skills and insight into how your computer really works. Linux skills are really hot in the job market right now. Not to mention if you're not able to play your games, you might actually get off your ass for once.
>>
>>51550926
>gaming: no value, body atrophies in chair
>Linux: valuable skills, gets you of your ass for once

It's contradictory, my dear Fagston.
>>
>>51550926
Never thought of it that way. Its the one reason why I'm very interested in Linux because of the skills and knowledge you learn from using it. As you put it, learning how a computer actually works and behaves.

>>51550745
This is true. I do mostly play cs:go, dota 2, xcom, and sc2. All except sc2 have native ports. I herd sc2 runs in wine though runs like shit.

I guess it just be fallout 4. Been having fun with it atm.

>>51550648
Gentoo has actually high up on my list of wanting to use. The whole source building sounds intriguing and since I have a 6700k compiling should be a breeze.
>>
>>51549899
Dota works on Leenucks, too! So get over here, Jeremiah!

>>51550710

...Or when you just don't play games that only run on Windows.

>stop gaming
Why? You can dualboot or run Linux in a VM.
There's no reason to arbitrarily limit your options, my friend.
>>
>>51549899
Convince yourself you lazy bastard
It takes time and effort for Linux to be better to use on a practical level.
If you can't be bothered to learn then don't even try.

Ask your parents to convince you to stop gaming if you really need to

You don't have to force it on yourself. Stick to windows if you like it better
>>51550613
That's where gamers live. Are you sure you are in the right board?
Also don't keep the caps on for your every letters, it's annoying.

nigguh, the only games worth playing are dota2 and csgo, and they're both available for linux

Linux has vi

i got some questions about gentoo.

>sytemd
seeing how systemd has taken over the linux world, does openrc fully work with stuff like gnome and kde?

>gnome
gtk shit seems to be widespread on linux so how easy is it to make gnome not so much a tablet mac hybrid thing and make it more desktop centric?

>compiling a kernel
do you have to compile a kernel or do they have some sort of auto compile thing?

>steam
how well does steam work on gentoo?

>wine
how easy is it to configure wine?
>>
>>51549899
41 out of the 68 games in my steam library run on linux.

If you already have 10 I can't really give you a reason to unistall it and install linux, but if you hadn't I'd say that linux is an on par alternative.
Good if you want your OS to fit your way of doing things instead of being you the one bending to how the OS works.
>>
>>51549899
Because it's free as in freedom. This means there's no commercial interests behind you OS. No more botnet, forced upgrades, nags. You are in total control of your system, it's developed by the community for the community, i.e. users such as yourself, not for the shareholders.

> i'll install either arch of gentoo
Shit distros. Linux Mint is a good first distro.
>>
>>51549899
While I think you should switch to Linux, I don´t think you should give up gaming for it.

It just doesn´t make sense. Why not dual boot Elementary OS + Windows 7?
>>
>>51549899
no one gives a fuck about you or what you do
>>
Do the best of both worlds (if compatible)

>Linux as main OS
>Windows as an on-demand virtual machine with VGA pass through

Run windows only when you want to play games
>>
>>51550747
Because you're an idiot. Did you even bother googling VGA/PCI Passthrough? It's not a ruse.
>>
>tfw laptop my only rig
>tfw I can't do passthrough
feels bad man :(

I really want to give Linux a proper chance, but dual booting is just too much of a pain in the ass
>>
>>51556842
>Because it's free as in freedom

I think you should stay on Windows.
>>
>>51549899
>TF2 is only good game, all other videogames are trashbags
>Linux runs TF2 quite well (and only mildly loses to absurd FPS config setups on windows, winning pretty solidly in a normie use-case)
Ergo, install gentoo
>>
>>51549899
Don't switch to linux if you're going to seitch just because you think that having linux is 'cool'
>>
>>51559088
Anyone with half a brain should. But you don't, and then come crying to /g/ when Microsoft does something according its comercial interests, like nagging the user to upgrade, or having "telemetry" (i.e. spyware) by default. And then I laugh.

GAYNOME has a hard-depend on systemd. It works in debian with shitvinit as they rip out the systemd guts. Some also patch it to work with consolekit.

you know anon, when people say "I have a gf/wife" they're saying that because they are proud of that, your wife (if you have one) is probably an overweight tumblr cunt so disgusting and degenerate that she could only get sex from a disgusting, degenerate manchild autist such as yourself. That isn't worth anything. You're not on the same level as those other guys that brag about their attractive women. You're still just a loser.

You don't really have to stop gaming. I made the switch and found that not only did everything work better (total shocker to me, running the pre-release of Ubuntu was more stable than Win7), but most of my games also worked (and were often faster). I now use Fedora and I can still use a Steam controller with Big Picture mode and play games like Borderlands 2 (and pre-sequel) or ARMA 3 or even LoL (with Wine)).

If you have any doubts take a weekend, back up your entire hard drive, install Ubuntu, Fedora, or whatever you want and try it out. Take a look at reddit.com/r/unixporn for some great themes and such. Look in your Steam library to see the games that support Linux. Check Google to see if there are ways to run the others. Worst comes to worst, you can always boot from a second hard disk (even external) to use Windows.
>>
>>51549899
Do it. We dont give a shit.
>>
>>51550517
>>51549899

Use Linux as a VM. Get a life license for vmware workstation and use linux there if you want. I can't give more shits about what you choose to do.
>>
>>51549899
The good:
> Doesn't sell your every move to advertisers
> Better OpenGL performance than Windows (disclaimer: I'm a Quadrofag).
> UnionFS/AuFS are extremely useful for managing mods
> Steam runs well natively or under WINE

The bad:
> nVidia Optimus support is still a sick joke
> WINE requires Windows DLLs to do anything useful
> PulseAudio fights with WINE for exclusive control over ALSA
> init system war isn't over yet, and the fallout tends to cause hard-to-fix problems
>>
Look, kid, do whatever the fuck you want. No one really cares. If you care more about playing games than using a good operating system, then stay on windows.

Privacy/security is a plus.
Linux is a lot more customisable than Windows. You have a larger say in what happens to your computer, as opposed to how Windows does what it wants a lot of the time.
Speed: If you have kinda low specs then general use is so much nicer on linux. Just trying to use windows search gives me cancer. Gaming is a different story but you don't need to game, you need a computer that works well, and for general purpose/programming its amazing. I despise having to switch to use windows but it happens. Run out of time to keep going but yeh, give it a serious try for at least a month then go from there.

I would use the argument gaming is for the braindead and children but you play Starcraft 2. So this doesn't really apply for you.
