Hello.

Post by Lum » Mon Nov 12, 2018 10:43 pm

While very much a Windows user, I've fleetingly dabbled in flavors of Linux.

This time it happens to be sparked by the hope that relatively demanding games (Skyrim, Civ 5, etc) might be more stable under Linux.
Although due to having NES roots, I overall prefer Nintendo-style titles.

I suppose I don't need to explain my username. 8)
