I'm so sick with ubuntu!

Post by Mitja »

Man i'm so disappointed over ubuntu 11.04 i installed alien arena and you cant even play it and same is with compiz -it totaly screws up the whole OS. So i tried linux mint (i read so much about it) and its awesome simple but awesome you can still have some compiz settings enabled and you can play every game without freezes!. And you dont need to install that adobe flash player to play online games or watch videos. Only think that linux mint should change is the libre office colour (you can still fill the ubuntu there. (orange icons).


Anyone who is going to use ubuntu to play games simply dont use it cuz you cant play anything. Only thing i like about ubuntu is their GUI! That is the only thing that ubuntu has and linux mint hasn't.




P.S: do you think that games will ever run on linux? Like that they will make games that support linux?


thanks for reading!

Games availability on Linux is not an issue, at least for me (I have other hobbies; I'm not a full-time gamer :wink:). Just a small drop of the things available on Linux, from my favorites. It is really a growing market, accelerating this past year IMHO.

Some review / news / top game lists sites, both for commercial and free games:

http://www.indiedb.com/ (news)

Some commercial games stores:
http://beta.indievania.com
http://www.gameolith.com/
http://www.humblebundle.com/ (do a "pay what you want" bundle every so often)

Some commercial RPGs:
http://basiliskgames.com/
http://www.gaslampgames.com/ (almost released)

Some other commercial games:
http://www.minecraft.net/ (sandbox game)
http://www.totaleclipsegames.com/ (hidden object puzzle game)

Some other free games:

..dont use it cuz you cant play anything
http://www.unixmen.com/gaming-on-linux/ ... -linuxmint
That won't be everyone's experience, Various say it does play
Although I am not a fan of Ubuntu, I am using Mint (stopped) and Mint LXDE versions (stuck with)

Not as likely
--you know the markets has spoken for windows OS (as a home PC), console games (xbox, sony playstation, nintendo etc., and smartphones (simple or online games)
