Anyone playing around with Linux lately? I've started playing around with some different flavors of it since the Steam hardware has come out and so far Linux Mint seems to be the best version for gaming as far as I can tell (besides Steams OS itself which I haven't tried yet) so I thought I'd ask what versions you guys have/are using? So far, I've only installed it on a couple of laptops, Dell E6400, Lenovo T410 and W520 series however I'm putting together my old AMD phenom II 6 core to see how well it really handles games thru Steam. Of the different versions of Linux I've tried, Mint seemed to be the only one that I could get Steam to install and play on. Ubuntu, which is what everyone originally recommended, wouldn't complete the install of Steam no matter which laptop I used, and honestly I didn't care for it at all. It seemed to be have really been dumb down for easy access to everything yet not really give you the technical information I was looking for like Video card settings or even what hardware it recognized. It was really generic on everything which I didn't care for. Steam would install on SUSE but not launch correctly. It kept getting errors that I couldn't fix. Since this was the main reason of installing Linux, I didn't really play around with this Distro much. Mint comes with VLC for video and music, GIMP for picture editing and Firefox preloaded on it and if you install Open Office, your pretty much all set for free. With the laptops, I haven't really ran into driver issues, all three systems had everything working right after install so I'm hoping that once the desktop is up and running, I'll be able to game with it decently enough especially with Steam pushing their own hardware and Linux support, that I'll be moving away from Windows. I love Windows 10 but I'm kind of excited about learning something completely different and I love that Steam is pushing this a long. It's probably the biggest reason for not moving to Linux sooner was lack of game support. The one thing that I haven't done much of is domain access and AD controls with Linux on a Server 2012 Windows Domain but that's a different issue all together. Anyway, thought I'd see what you have ran into with gaming with Linux.
