PostSubject: Linux based OS called Ubuntu   Mon Jun 24, 2013 2:30 am

Hey clan mates! Recently i found this OS (operating system) on the Internet called Ubuntu and basically its a linux based free operating system. Now my problem is all my programs and games wont work now (over 500Gigs of S***) because there meant to run on windows not Linux. Also the drivers for my graphics card and what not ... i might have to reinstall them too. So far i am trying to test it without wiping all my windows S*** and its a hard choice to stick with Windows or go with Linux. So if any one else has tried Ubuntu could they help me out a bit.
 Thanks

I never personally had Ubuntu on any of my computers but I had it installed on a customer's machine; I didn't like it that much, though, now, I don't remember much about it--I remember the install being a pain but I think it was just too simple to use, unless there is no other option.  

I would just go with windows if you have all your games and stuff on it Razz

I had Ubuntu before, you should be able to play some of the games with something called Wine. Wine lets you emulate Windows software on your Linux-based system, and it's in the Ubuntu shop or whatever it's called for free. I don't think you'll be able to perfectly get all of them working, though, but it's better than none.
