Well, I am now trying it out!

I have installed Linux on my pc that I browse the Internet, control the servers, etc, etc.

There is a big learning curve with Linux, but what I like about it is that it is free....that's right, it doesn't cost you a dime....plus all the software that you'll ever need will not cost you a cent. Also, you are not being spied on like you are with Windows 7, 8, and 10. Why do you think they give you Windows 10 for free by upgrading? They sell your information to companies....that is how they make their money. There is a big stink right now with Microsoft updating people's computers to Win 10 without their consent. Do a google search or go to youtube.com and search for it.

Now, I am not trying to sell you Linux or anything like that, it's just that I'm getting fed up with Microsoft's underhand way that they do business.

The sad thing is that we need Windows for gaming. There is no way of getting around it until game developers make their games available for Linux.....and that probably won't ever happen.

I agree. I've even considered and come close to replacing all my windows stuff with Apple... No that's really going to the Darkside of the force. Security is better but the games we play just aren't available for it, not to mention that Apple cost twice as much is windows based equipment.

My dad ventured into Linux one time. I wouldn't mind learning it myself. There may even be some type of bridge program that would allow you to play your windows games on Linux. I know Apple has something like that.

Let me know Storm what you think of it maybe we could learn some of it together.
