    Can't...... Understand


    What is so great about this linux OS anyways..... years ago, i got my copy of SUSE linux.... my big bro said that it was way more user friendly and way more custimizable than windows.... since then.... i have wasted like 30 or 50 bucks i cant remember, countless hours, a good harddrive, my wife and children (just a joke ), and other things because of this Linux OS. The reson i have a comp is for gaming... are there even very many games that are compatable with Linux??? i have seen very few games that i could buy, put in my cr-rom drive, install, and play just like that.


    now tell me you Linux Phreaks.... why should i use linux over my Windows XP Home.?!?!?!?!

    If gaming is your thing, stay with windows. 'Nuff said.

    Want an OS that rarely crashes? Want something stable? Want flexibility in how you control your system? Then look at Linux (not just SuSE, there are many excellent distributions out there). It's a stable alternative to Windows. (Not to mention, 99.9% of the software is absolutely free)

    Another one is rpm.pbone.net, if you choose "advance rpm search" and select only your suse-version you can find most stuff you're looking for.

    What can linux be used for? Well, actually most things. I use it for chatting, networking, desktop-modding, a bit gaming, word-processing, a bit programming, once upon a time webdesigning etc etc. There are no limits.

    Yeah, it's certainly true that Linux isn't for everyone. In fact, I think less adventurous computer users would probably be much happier if they'd simply stay within their limits.

    I like using Linux "because I can".

    That's it in a nutshell. What else do you want out of an OS?
    As for games, there is Unreal Tournament and Quake (I believe) for Linux. Look around the internet using your friend Google.
