Will YOU be gaming on Linux soon?

is its amazing number of options. If you are rich you can play like this, if
you are not you can build a PC from trash, you can customize your games to look like
this and if you buy PC components there are options for every element with at least two
companies competing on CPUs or GPUs. And this is really good, any time only one
company starts gaining too much control over one of these markets innovations and options
start to suffer. Which is why it is a bit concerning that when
the time comes to pick an operating system you can choose between Windows 10… And Windows 7. If you want to keep up with the latest stuff
you have to use Windows, and Microsoft’s position as the gatekeeper opens up a ton of shilling
nightmare scenarios for Gaming. A lot of people became hopeful when Valve,
obviously concerned about this very possibility, starting putting some real weight behind Linux. While things did not evolve as fast as some
expected the progress that has been made in making Linux a mainstream option is impressive. Don´t take me wrong, it is quite not there
yet. If you use low end or entry level hardware
the performance impact is noticeable and the most optimal Linux distributions are a journey
to install but the progress made in the last 2 years makes this worth keeping an eye on. So, given that every video and guide I see
on this topic tries this on very powerful equipment I thought it would worth asking
“What is the current state on gaming on Linux on a modest PC? Will this be a valid option soon?” So as previously mentioned on this video installing
a very optimized Linux system can be pretty daunting even for someone with a moderate
level of tech literacy, but Desktop Linux is not one monolithic entity like windows
but rather a family of systems based on the same kernel. My favourite among them is Ubuntu, mainly
because of how easy it is to install and relatively easy to get support when something does not
work. Seriously at this point, I have had more failed
Windows installs than failed Ubuntu Installs You will likely notice a ton of people in
comments complaining about my choice of distribution. Keep in mind Linux distros are a common source
of internet fights. But I stand by what I said, from a perspective
of a beginner user Ubuntu is one of the easiest to get into and from the perspective of a
budget PC user, there is a variant called Lubuntu which is optimized to be as light
as possible, which is what I will use. This thing has revived many old computers
and its background use of resources is extraordinarily low. I will focus on Nvidia GPUs for this video,
as their drivers are also the easiest to install. I am aware there is a powerful open-source
AMD driver but it also a fair bit more complicated to install. More on that later. And while installing software in Linux can
be initially a bit of a daunting task if you are new to the whole but installing Steam
is super easy. Getting the latest Nvidia drivers is a bit
trickier since it involves adding a repository which involves some terminal commands but
then there is a nice tool to select the newest driver. One thing, however, to keep in mind is that
a lot of the gaming options that I am going to discuss are pretty new and therefore require
the use of the latest drivers, which is why you will see me use an entry level GT 1030
rather than an older gaming GPU like a 460 as I want to retain compatibility with vulkan
and newest drivers. As you will soon see some of these methods
are months old. Let´s get gaming. Part 1: Native Ports There is a surprisingly high number of native
Linux ports of games available through Steam. While outside the indie realm the number of
big titles tends to be small there are a number of surprises. For example, a large quantity of Valve´s
own back catalogue has been ported including Counter Strike Global Offensive. This game is a curious example because on
the benchmark map the GPU is too powerful for 720 and we hit a hard CPU bottleneck but
still has very good performance all around. Let´s test another example, the open-world
Mad Max game which was ported by Feral Interactive, a studio that has made a reputation out ofhigh-quality
Linux ports, this one going as far as to use Vulkan rather than older OpenGL. Both versions have full configuration files
where you can remove shadows with the tweak in the video in the corner. Interestingly enough the game reaches high
performance on Windows but on Linux it hits what looks like an unexpected CPU bottleneck. It is odd considering the game was GPU bound on Windows. This might have to do with some change done
during the porting process as Mad Max’s engine did not initially support Linux. Which is why I also decided to test Rocket
League, a game using Unreal Engine 3 which supports exporting to Linux. While making accurate benchmarks of this guy
can be hard it does seem that the GPU is the main limiter in both and the performance on
test map is pretty similar, with a smaller impact. Which led me to Bioshock Infinite, another
Unreal Engine 3 game natively ported to Linux with proper benchmarking tools that, when
run, showed some odd performance metrics on Linux. The GPU was the main bottleneck on the most
intense parts but overall the conclusion regarding the performance impact in the porting process
is… pretty similar to what I saw on the initial 2 games. Native games, initially, are made for Linux
so they represent the easiest to use, you just install and play and SHOULD provide the
best performance. In reality in 3 of my test cases, the performance
gap was dramatic. I am aware that there is a lot of lower level
optimization I could do since Linux is very very customizable, but even that would hardly
recover from an almost halving of the framerate. Furthermore, from an Industry level, Linux
ports require the most effort. They require significant resources to create
for what is currently a very small audience. Which is why they are so rare in the AAA space,
with most of the newest releases being indie titles. This is a good transition into part 2: Wine
and Lutris WINE is not an Emulator. That is literally what the acronym means,
it is recursive. Wine is a compatibility layer that translates
certain parts of windows effectively allowing some Windows programs to run on Linux. It does not emulate an entire Windows PC. This program has evolved a great deal over
the years and it can successfully run a fair bit of games with a lot of effort and configuration. Which lead to the creation of programs like
Lutris. A collection of scripts made for a large number
of games that would pre-configure wine for you to correctly play that game to the best
it could be done. Usually lauded as a one-click solution, in
reality, it often does not work, requires some other things to be installed, sometimes
it does not open and game updates break things. I streamed my efforts of trying to understand
how to get Skyrim and Overwatch working while having several people who knew way more about
Linux than I do in the chat helping me and it took me 2 days of work to get Overwatch
working without input issues. The instructions made it clear that the cache
needed to be filled and the game would stutter for a while and boy did it stutter but even
after 5 or 6 matches playing like this, the performance was… way to stuttery to work
for me. And I never could get Skyrim to boot. Now I want to get something clear, with enough
knowledge and a couple of days of work you can probably get anything listed in Lutris
to work and the community effort that has gone into this tool is nothing short of admirable. But it is not the one-click tool that could
bridge Linux as a more legitimate alternative gaming OS. As it stands right now it is complicated. Wouldn´t it be cool if someone took this
technology and this effort that is already there and transformed into the next step in
this natural evolution? Part 3: Steam Play So it is pretty clear that Valve still considers
Linux as the most likely candidate for the second horse in the gaming OC race and has
released the next step in the efforts, something less flashy than their own Linux distro or
their own consoles but likely something that is going to have a larger real impact. It is called Steam Play and what they did
is take the technology from wine and a dxvk, a transition later than translates Microsoft
only DirectX into Linux compatible Vulkan, to create their own fork called proton and
integrated directly into Steam. So to play a Windows-only game you download
on Steam, click play and after a brief warning, it works. IT JUST WORKS. With some caveats. This was just released and the official compatibility
least is a bit small, but you can try in incompatible games if you are feeling bold. I am getting ahead of myself again. Let´s try some games. The most impressive example there is DOOM. A heavily optimized, bombastic and deliciously
explosive game that is already compatible with Vulkan. I disabled shadows with the trick on my video,
run it on 720 and compared with the same scene in Windows and oh boy. While there is an obvious performance impact,
you are after all running the game in another OS using a compatibility layer, the impact
during gameplay is comparable and sometimes even less than what I saw comparing this with
native ports. And I did not have to struggle with a single
Wine configuration. Another interesting case is Nier: Automata. I often use this game as a GPU benchmark because
of how stupidly computationally expensive its global illumination is, something you
can fix with the FAR mod which (try as I might) I can not get to work on Steam Play. We will get back to that. But even unmodded compared to running it in
regular Windows the performance penalty is about 10 fps which is still being playable
on the GT 1030. Since this game is going through DirectX to
Vulkan rather than Vulkan to Vulkan like doom the hit is expected but this is again comparable
to the results that I saw in native ports. And here is why that is important. As I mentioned before the native ports involve
a substantial investment from publishers and turn out they are not as performance perfect,
at least in budget-oriented stuff, as promised. I might be wrong but… but I don´t think
adding any of these games to Steam Play required a big involvement from the publishers of these
games. Potentially, Valve could be adding real plug
and play support to a variety of titles and slowly but surely extend the viability of
Linux as a gaming OS. Ideally… a lot of people could be playing
this without even knowing they are going through a compatibility layer. As a final experiment, you can go into the
options and enable Steam Play for all games at your own risk of breaking things. Remember how I had so much trouble getting
Lutris to do Skyrim? Not on Steam Play… here, it just worked. People have been going through their libraries
and documenting what works and what does not on Steam Play. Some links in the description. But everything is not perfect, Using the correct AMD drivers is still a daunting
task and the state of Intel HD drivers for gaming is really, really bad which limits
a large number of entry-level gamers and laptop users. Not to mention that in certain games like
Nier: Automata the mods are Windows specific so there is no simple way to intall them on
Linux. However, look at this way. 10 years ago just installing any distribution
of Linux was complicated. 7 years ago the idea of any mainstream gaming
on Linux was hard to take seriously until Steam released there, and by 2014 both Unity
and Unreal Engine had added support to exporting their games to Linux. The initial release of the tool that translates
DirectX to Vulkan was January this year and it has only been months since Valve released
their own fork that actually works flawlessly running a number of Windows Games with a performance
impact in low-end PCs that rivals native. The progress on this thing has been exponential
and I would not be surprised if in another 5 years this whole thing is closer to being
a true alternative to Windows. Not to mention that you can download Linux
for free so, you do not have to spend money on a Windows license, which is a cost we never
consider when we discuss the cost of Pc Gaming, and using Linux is way more secure than putting
all your email passwords in a pirated OS that you got from who knows where… But all the Linux in the world is really not
going to help if you do not care about your security. Let me tell you a story that I have never
shared on video before. In 2016 I went to Gamescom, the worlds biggest
Gaming show, for the first time. While on the show my phone logged me out of
twitter and I could not remember my password so I changed it to the first thing that came
to mind and continued on with the show. What I did not know is that
there has been a leak of the Socialblade database where I had used the same password. So a very dedicated hater used this to steal
my Twitter account. This malicious individual, while I was still
at the conference, set out to do as much damage as possible, posting many images of pornography
and sending racial slurs to every person I had talked during Gamescom. That was not good, and it took a lot of luck
and help from some valiant people in the audience to get my account back. But since then, nothing of the sort has happened. Why? Because I use Dashlane. I use Dashlane to generate strong passwords
for my vital stuff like YouTube and Twitter, which is locally encrypted with a master password
and synced with my phone and the bazillion laptops that I use every day and it alerts
me when there is mayor leak so the social blade incident does not happen again. And the pro version comes with some extra
useful features, like a VPN that I use on my phone every time I have to use PayPal or
social media on a wifi that I do not trust. And it supports Linux through its great web
app and extension so I can safely use it across operating systems as well. Don´t be an idiot like me that uses the same
password for your freaking social media and YouTube account on which your livelihood depends. You can use Dashlane for free on the link
down below or you can use the same link to support the
channel and get 10% off Dashlane premium, with unlimited passwords and devices, the
VPN that I mentioned and an even more impressive Dark Web Monitoring system that alerts you
when any of your passwords have been stolen and published on the seedier corners of the
web. Thank you to them for sponsoring this video,

  1. Once again thank you to Dashlane for sponsoring this video. You should give the free account a try: https://www.dashlane.com/lowspecgamer

    I have been wanting to explore more of this topic for a while, but without the support of the sponsors, it would have been difficult.Thank you!

  2. Definitely not. A 100 dollar. I mean a penny windows computer is better than any linux bullshit

  3. Installing drivers on Ubuntu: It's a bit daunting, you have to go add a repository, update the package manager indexes, and then install the NVIDIA driver…

    Installing drivers on Manjaro: The installer does it automagically for you, and you can just open up the graphical settings manager and choose the driver you want anyway…

    Nice choice of distro. Hmmm…

  4. Even if you're a fan of Windows and enjoy gaming on Windows, you should definitely be excited about some gamers switching to Linux, for the same reason that even NVIDIA GPU owners should be happy if they see AMD put out a decent GPU. Competition is a great thing and always has a positive impact. If Linux can take off and become a viable gaming platform, for the first time ever gamers will have a real choice over OS. No longer can Microsoft simply shaft their users with the arrogant confidence to assume that everyone will bend over and accept it because 'they have no choice', instead Microsoft will be forced to actually compete and try to provide a better experience, which means Windows itself gets better from Linux becoming a gaming platform. So please, give Linux a chance and we all benefit in the long run, even if Windows is your true love.

  5. I really want to jump to linux. I don't greatly care about ease of installation. I do care about performance and compatibility.

  6. i use debian linux, game productivity is ~5-25 percent less (in wine, proton etc). ports are of different quality, some work well some not.

  7. i don't hate you for your choices , after all they are your choices.
    just i wont be able to help you very well as im running arch

  8. The only person who talks about Linux Gaming truthfully! Gaming on Linux would make a Low Spec Gamer run games much faster due to the background CPU and RAM usage being much lower. Sadly a lot of games currently don’t support Linux because they don’t care ;(

  9. My lowest powered system is an optiplex 755 with a22 bios, gt 310, 8gb ddr2 800mhz, 120gb sata III ssd. I only have one windows game on it, COD4, and it plays really well. I also have an AMD 860k with gt 1030 it's not too bad. Then my other systems are higher end.

  10. Funny enough, I'm watching this video on Linux. I can play a lot of games that I want to play on Linux. Even Sekiro and DMC5. 😀 And I didn't really have to do a lot of work to play said games either. I use Linux Mint though. I chose it because it's setup like Windows, which is nice. 😀

  11. I use linux and I consider it a very good operating system, although it has very little compatibility and is a bit more difficult to use than other systems does not take away the fact that it is wonderful. Many games work, one of the best distributions of linux for gaming is the SteamOS, since it has compatibility with all the Valve games and most of the Steam games, apart from that they can be hacked in different ways. With only 4 or 6 GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5 or i3 with quad core or a Pentium G3020 dual core and an integrated video card of Intel HD graphics or … nvidia 720Gtx graphics card you can run many games in quality normal or high and fps of 50 60 or 80 I think I'm satisfied. Apart it does not consume much to the computer, it is designed so that the system works fast and without problems. The good thing is also that it does not require a heavy Hardware to make it work. With 512 mb of ram or 2gb of ram and an intel celeron dual core works perfectly.

  12. a quick rundown of linux distros with why, and why not to install them.
    ubuntu- is user friendly (to a point) and based on debian, which tends to be the gold standard of stability. it is not the only user friendly distro, but it is one of the most stable. this shouldn't matter if you only intend to get steam and recording software on a fresh install. however in the name of stability, many programes and packages are older than what most other linux distros offer(this includes kernel updates, which while some regress in gaming, it generally gets better over time. also every program mentioned, as well as mesa(linux opengl) and tons of others are all going to be behind on updates and hence have lower performance )
    sulus- is based on the idea of having fewer packages in a tied down repository, but all those packages are mostly up to date. hence you get a more up to date system that is also more stable than the alternatives. its reasonably user friendly but its also rather young in development by comparison, so there are some kinks in the pipe.
    arch- is amoung the best rolling release distros and as such theres a few options
    –manjaro sometimes downplays the merits of arch with a more restricted base repository, but is still the best option for ubuntu usability + arch newest packages.

    –antegos less developed than manjaro but has merit in leaning closer to arch than manjaro, while still having an easy enough experience.
    calculate linux- just thought i should mention my current distro. its rather easy to install, but unlike arch, after you've installed the main system and gotten a desktop environment, the simple act of maintaining the machine can take some research. it is yet to be seen for me if this is worth it in terms of performance, but i am enjoying it.

  13. ha, Tim Asshole Sweeney complaining about Microsoft's Monopoly when he is trying to do the same with his shitty bullshit launcher

  14. I'm already Gaming on Linux. (Have been since Day -1) and frankly if you find installing a modern Linux OS on your PC a difficult journey's when you can build your own PC, then frankly how do you dress yourself in the morning. (Also Mint is a thing)

    Also, the nVidia repo can be added in the software center…. no terminal needed……

  15. I predict one day, Linux will provide better performance on current games (as in running on windows 10). It will take clever emulation that can exclusively use the resources needed and utilize the full potential of your computer.

  16. One year later.. Proton on Steam. In another words: Valve has implemented a native emulator/compatibility layer into Steam that allows to run Linux incompatible games on Linux without any additional effort, other than installing and hitting play. People are successfully running GTA V on their Linux machines with little or no performance loss. I personally am able to run Red Orchestra 2 (not natively available for Linux) on Steam via Proton and it funnily enough runs rather well on my old, work orientated laptop (Intel HD 3000) with low – medium settings, while the game would be unplayable on Windows with lowest settings. Linux is a much more better platform for gaming, developers just need to make use of it.

  17. This is a good video to get you started, but boy did last 8 months bring more improvements. In short AMD has stepped up their game with drivers, so now for newer cards there's no need to install anything. Steam added Steam DOS for older DOS games, which works awesome and I got to play so many good games I almost forgot about. Steam Play (and Proton) made huge improvements in performance and support. Community has created ProtonDB (https://www.protondb.com/) which lists how good the support is for any given game and has global statistics. Valve has announced their own VR headset with native Linux support equal to that of Windows. Many many things are changing for the better and an ever accelerating pace.

  18. I’ve been trying to game on Ubuntu 18.04 on a hodgepodge system of old gaming parts from friends. Today I spent an entire afternoon trying to get the drivers for an AMD R7 240 gpu. I quit out of frustration. I think linux just needs better driver installation and optimization for it to be perfect.

  19. For me, Overwatch runs flawlessly! (in the past, about this long ago, it didn't)
    there's been a lot of updates with lutris and wine in the past few months, so a retest may be of interest!

  20. I had a lot of problems with Nvidai on Linux (espacially on KDE), changed to AMD and everything just worked 🙂

  21. I'm actually surprised that a game released by Bugthesda could be run on Linux; most of the time, it's hard to even get them working on Windows. Dare I hope Bethesda is improving?

    I'd love to see Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 running on Linux. Maybe they already do?

  22. I would love to see a follow up to this with the last 9 months of maturity of Proton. I have been using Linux for several years now, and this has been a literal game changer for me. Great video, and I love how you show the Arch installation wiki as how to install Linux. One the one side, most distros install much much easier than that, and on the other side, the Arch wiki is incredibly detailed and any Linux user can jump to it for information on packages. Great work!

  23. Try Gentoo. It won't solve all your problems, but at least you gonna know how to solve majority of them yourself.

  24. Just so you know, Ubuntu is freezing all 32-bit programs and libraries at whatever their last version was on it and distros based on it. They announced elimination of 32-bit support starting in 2020. This SEVERELY hurts gaming, as a lot of games both native and via Wine/Proton are only 32-bit. Valve has even stated they cannot recommend Ubuntu or its derivitives/variants anymore as a result.

  25. wait a minute… the Mesa driver comes preinstalled since it's baked directly into the kernel… you don't have to install anything!!!! Just plug and play!

  26. Please note that Ubuntu wants to kill off 32 Bit support which in turn gaming depends heavily. Even Valve officially revoked its recommendation to use Ubuntu.

    Use Debian or Manjaro instead.

  27. Strange. In my experience the performance is slightly better in terms of fps and the thermals are dramatically improved on Linux. Windows sounds like a jet engine and Linux is much quieter. Which is expected, since Linux has a solid, stable, modern backend, unlike Windows' mess of spaghetti code. Of note, I'm on a fairly high-end computer that generally runs everything very well.
    Also, this is coming from someone with extensive knowledge of the backends, leave me alone Microsoft fanboys.

  28. @LowSpecGamer
    Alex tengo un gran desafío para tí, la ps4 en ciertas versiones puede correr linux, y los sceners están corriendo emuladores de wiiu incluso con buena compatibilidad, parece que el hardware de Ps4 es muy potente en una PC con linux, también están corriendo juegos nativos de linux pero freeware, hasta ahora estos youtubers (la mayoría jugadores de consolas) no tienen los conocimientos de una PC o de linux y nadie a podido medir la real potencia de la PS4 con linux, como por ejemplo juegos nativos de steam, o incluso Doom con Proton, será que Doom con protón correrá mejor o a 60 fps steam de linux de PS4 que la versión de PS4 que sólo va a 30 fps? Te escribo a tí porque estos que prueban linux en PS4 no tienen idea del potencial que puede tener esa consola como PC, saludos………..aquí te dejo un benchmark y el canal que más se dedica esto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLfjWo09TKs

  29. Lubuntu is NOT a good choice for gaming. Yes, it's light weight, but Valve actually only recommends Ubuntu for gaming. Lubuntu and Xubuntu are both made for reviving old PCs, not for gaming. I get higher FPS in csgo on Ubuntu than Windows, which is weird. Oberwatch performs the same, with around 150 fps on ubuntu and windows, and Fallout 3 is as stable as ever on Ubuntu, which is so damn cool.

  30. Overwatch is one of the windows only games that play exactly as on windows. I have a GTX 960 2Gb, and the game runs SO DAMN WELL. It has a gold rating on Lutris for a reason. That stuttering and lag is a big sign you should switch to Ubuntu. Far better gaming on there. You can literally look up any video on overwatch ubuntu and you'll see what i mean.

  31. You need to seriously do some research before making a vide like this, because unlike windows, "the lighter the better" doesn't apply to linux distros. Some are really good and optimized for gaming. And most wine and games are made specifically to work with Ubuntu.

  32. I have no issues using Linux, if I can play every game on steam with no extra steps and support for all my Amd or Nvidia drivers

  33. Honestly a lot of people complain about the terminal, but as somebody who had only been using Linux (My Distro is Pop!_OS) for about two months and Windows all my life, never using the command line except for special few times when I was testing something out or studying for an exam, I really don't see the problem with it. Anthony from LTT put it really well in my opinion. "You know how you can get lost in menu navigation trying to find that one option? If you know exactly what you want to do, typing it into the terminal is just much more simple." Like, honestly, I'm better at using the Windows command line because of my use of the terminal. There's still a lot of stuff I don't understand about Linux, but I can safely say that the reason that the terminal is so widely used isn't because it's a more complex OS to use, it's because honestly, it makes life easier that trolling through a potentially clunky GUI.

  34. The trouble is that while many Linux systems are quite easy to install and use on basic office and admin uses, things that use lots of resources like games can be tricky to get running reliably. Sure, Steam and its integrated Proton system have made things easier but it is still a battle on a per title basis to get things working – even on native Linux titles.

    Also, generally speaking, for Linux you are better off using an AMD GPU as there is much better development of AMD drivers on Linux than with Nvidia because Nvidia's closed source attitude clashes with Linux's open source nature and model of public development.

  35. I am wanting to so bad to get away windows for gaming i feel so confused with linux i need to to take classes some how had a stroke which puts me slow but i still play games on my pc new and old and I dont care for steam after being ripped off by steam

  36. your mistake was using an ubuntu distro xD ubuntu is based on debian but locks down its stuff, unlike debian making it a bit better for customization and optimization. im not the smartest person with linux but i feel as ubuntu is not a good choice for newcomers to linux. at best it would be Linux Mint Debian Edition 😛

  37. give https://www.slax.org/customize.php a go for linux gaming with no bloat ,simple module making ,loading/unloading etc

  38. What are using to show performance on Linux, the stuff below the steam fps counter? I've been using Linux on and off for almost decade and never found something with all the details you were showing!

  39. I really do not appreciate what Microsoft is doing nowadays with windows, they tried their best to make more money out of it, but were not so successful. They did good upto windows 7, they seemed to be really interested in their work until then. Windows 10 did have many great features(and many great annoyances too), but it overall seemed unpolished.

    Linux on the other hand, has kept improving and improving. It is already preferred by developers and for servers. It has gotten really simple nowadays that even a person like me with little fancy techy knowledge can use it for simple activities. It has now set its eyes on gaming, and it will eventually take over, it is the future of OS. Everything comes to an end, see Nokia for example, still there but not as relevant as it used to be.

  40. whats your main gaming rig or are u using laptop. I remember u had sent that one msi laptop with gtx 1050 4gig wich ran pretty much everything

  41. The easiest and the coolest distro from me has been farren OS looks amazing with its costumizations and drivers included. Pop OS is one of my favorites as well it also comes with graphics drivers and is quite polished for laptops specifically .

  42. for me on a laptop with a gtx 1050 2gig and i7 8550u ran metro redux 2033 really well actually and smooth actually smoother than windows lol . I did however upgrade to another laptop with a gtx 1050ti 4gig and i7 8750h 4k laptop can u do tweaks to play 4k on lower end gpus ? just wondering . also i really really love you doing laptop hacks when u connect a eGPU and see how it runs games those are fun to watch. Bro i enjoy your work

  43. Ubuntu, with its bundled tracker stuff techs which very much would and could grinding your system to halt if left unchecked.. Difference from window's version is tracker offers simple way to completely deactivated that thing off..

  44. "Pirated Windows you got who knows where?" Well if you have more than two braincells you download the ISO from Microsoft and just don't enter a license key.
    You still get all updates etc.

    But I don't trust anything who gives NSA backdoors 🙄

  45. As usually, Windows 10 is doing their best to make me have a bad day a lot of times. And one day, Windows decided that they want to suicide and so they deleted themselves…somehow.
    I was preparing for a dual boot a day before that happened and so I had the Ubuntu Setup on a USB and I installed linux and try it for a week. I tried to do a bunch of stuff and I was actually really impressed about the power of Linux, and I also tried gaming. I tried some games I played on Windows 10 that also had a Linux version and I can say that they were running even better than they did on Windows. But for me, Linux was something completely different. I'm using Windows since the first time I touched a PC and I tried Linux a few months back. And for a lot of other reasons I went back and fixed Windows 10, I still hate it but at the end… It's Windows… I have no problem about making a dual boot again in the future, but probably I'm not going to use Ubuntu. I'll use a different distro.
