Published at LXer:
Valve's SIGGRAPH 2012 presentation last night -- about the Source Engine on Linux and their experiences with maximizing the OpenGL performance of their game engine on Linux -- was a success. More details about the presentation will be available in the coming days, including the slides. However, for those overly-excited, here's a few photos from the Valve Linux presentation in Los Angeles. There's also a photo of Left 4 Dead 2 on Linux, although it's not too clear and doesn't show (Ubuntu) Linux in the background with my photos from April when at Valve HQ being much more clear.
Windows or Linux? (on 512ram, 3.2GHz)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2012
My old computer (with the above specs) is running fine on Windows XP, but it lags terribly after booting up, and when AVG runs in the background. I'm thinking of switching over to Linux if the performance is good. However, on the webpage, it says that Ubuntu requires at least 1Gb of ram to operate so it's recommended to try out Xubuntu as an alternative. But, I really like the visuals from Ubuntu. So, should I stick with XP, or switch to Ubuntu (provided that it's not lagging) ?
Windows or Linux interface and file system
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 16, 2011
Not sure where to post this other than the cafe has it is not a Linux question but a question about windows and linux.
My question is why does windows use so many files just to keep the OS going ? And why does windows still use DLL and Exe and the registry when most Unix,Linux and Mac OSx do not.
It is true windows may be more user friendly than Linux do to Linux and Unix use alot of command line and was built more for security where by windows for the average person.
The under line of files of windows is messy and loads self every where. Any Mac user where tell you that you just drag and drop one appliication from one Mac computer to other and works.Where windows you must run the install or unstall program and most 90% of the time need a reboot
Also no idea why windows vista or windows 7 GUI interface started to use KDE Fedora interface the KDE Fedora interface is not easy to use ,it well may be splashing interface the way it looks but windows 95,98 or windows Me interface
OS X now much more secure than Windows or Linux

This is coming from hackers that compromised OSX in previous Pwn2Own contests.

How to send message via terminal in windows or linux?
I need a good turnbased miltary strategy game, Windows or Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2007
I need a new game, and I'm open to suggestions.
The big requirement is that it's turn-based. I've played lots of RTS games lately, be it Starcraft or AOE, etc., and while I am looking forward to Starcraft II I would like to get something turn-based so I can really think ahead and actually use some strategery.
Civ III is still one of my favorite games of all time, though I'm looking for something more military based. As the title suggests, I can go for something either on Windows or Linux.
What do you guys like?
EDIT: I'm aware of the new port of Axis & Allies - I haven't tried that yet though I'm a big fan of the board games. (We've got darn near all of the versions..)
ISO Compiler for windows or linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2010
I'm looking to create a server (probably LAMP) i need all my programs to install at one time. SOME of my programs are not in the repos and all of them aren't .deb. Some of them are .rpm. I also can't guarentee internet connection, at least not during install, so no apt-get.
on a note about the internet i'll probably be getting clear internet. I also plan to connect to the server from my phone and other computers. I know the server needs a static ip but what other configuration does it (should it) need.
Python/Django development, windows or linux? [closed]
location: linuxexchange.com - date: February 7, 2015
I have been working on Python quite a lot recently and started reading the doc for Django, however I can't deny the fact that most of the video tutorials I find usually shows Linux as the chosen OS. I've ignored this mostly, but I started to come upon some problems with people using commands such as "touch" for which I have no idea about what the equivalent is in the Windows 7 command prompt. I've heard about New-Item in Power Shell, however it's messy and I am fearing that this "equivalent hunt" might come again and again...
So I started to wonder why were most of the people using Linux with Python, would be a good move (knowing that my Linux knowledge is completely null) to learn to use Linux for development purpose? Would it allow me to be more efficient at developing with Python in general? Would it be possible to list the benefits of doing so?
Oracle works better with Windows or Linux? give your answer based on your experience
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 26, 2011
In most cases I am used to work with Windows, some weeks ago I started to work with Oracle, I have experience with other DBMS like SQL and MySql and I have worked with them in Windows.
Now I am learning Oracle and I don't know in which OS oracle works better. I have installed it in windows but not in Linux. I also downloaded the Oracle Enterprise Linux which is an Linux OS for Oracle (similar with RedHat).
I want to know if Oracle Enterprise Linux is the only one Linux OS where Oracle can be installed or we can install Oracle even in RedHat, Ubuntu etc.
Also if someone has experience with this issue please let us know in which OS Oracle works better. I am confused with this problem and an answer from a profesional DBA will be very helpful for me.
So who can tell us which version of Oracle 11 is for linux, since i want to install Oracle on RedHat it will be good if some one let me know what is the Oracle version for Linux (redhat). Also it will be good if i have some link wher
How to check the OS version at runtime e.g. windows or linux without using a conditional compilation statement
location: linuxexchange.com - date: September 8, 2013
Does anyone know how to determine what platform your c# code is running on e.g. whether it is running on linux or windows so that I can execute different code at runtime.
I have a c# windows app that I want to build to target windows and linux platforms.
So far I have created 2 project files pointing to the same set of source code files. I then use a conditional compilation statement one of the projects called LINUX.
Where there are difference in the actual code I use coditional statements using the conditional compilation statement, e.g
' do something
Is there a better way of doing this? I don't really want to have 2 project files.
Thanks in advance.
