    Man.
    I bought Fallout 3.
    It sucks.
    I wish I could do moneyback.

    Fallout 1&2 were so much better! Same as Xcom, Ja2 etc. All by little indie studios.

    *cough*

    Yeah, sure does Fallout 3 suck. That's why it sells so well, because people think it sucks and they don't buy it. :-P Needless to say it sold more copies than all Linux indie games combined...

    Wow, surprising that in this whole thread only one post did mention Compiz/Desktop effect:
    System > Preference > Apparence > Visual Effect > off

    make the test


    Doesn't look too much hard.


    I wonder if will never happen that Phoronix try to benchmark using a distro like Puppylinux.. or even better: TurboPup Xtreme

    Nvidia drivers for linux do not support even for Optimus technology.

    I have an Asus U30JC (intel core i3 350M & nvidia 310M) and the X server does not start when I install nvidia drivers.

    How you got it?

    Better optimus laptops allow selection of GPU from the bios, linux runs fine on them.

    Thanks, I had read similar comments in other forums.
    Send an e-mail to asus tech support and they told me that the solution was to wait for publication Nvidia drivers with support for Optimus

    Lol, typical Asus support. Trust me I have dealt more with them then I care to admit over the last year or so. Maybe point them to nvnews.net where nvidia has stated that they are not bringing optimus to linux. Make sure you are dealing with a tier 2 rep and make sure that he forwards it on to engineering. I've had to go over their head a few times and contact headoffice overseas via phone before they corrected a few BIOS issues on their boards.
