i bought myself a new computer because of steam for linux, without any windows, but i installed a 90 day windows 8 demo alongside ubuntu 12.04(so i can atleast play a bit till then :P),
but the ui is kinda horrible, unity is MUCH better than this windows 8 crap. granted unity still requires some polish here and there,
especialy, it should allow users to easily make thier own launchers/shortcuts to programms/scripts/games, but other then that, it's ok, i already got used to the always at the top toolbar.
as long as amd is making their linux driver better, i'm ready. i had perfomance drop compared to windows 8, while running the unigine heaven benchmark.
windows 8: 412 points directx
ubuntu 12.04: 193 points opengl
CPU:Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GH
GPU:MSI HD7750 OC
MB:ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8H61-M LE B3 Revision
btw:i have a problem concerning enemy territory quake wars, the sound is extremly delayed/lagging behind with the latest patch, so i deinstalled it.
any solution to this?
^ Load and use Unity 2D.
and update your ATI driver. New driver just released.
ALSO, make sure the the system is actually using the Latest version of the driver.
I have seen that, even if you download and install latest version of nvidia/ati, the app or the games use the old native drivers. GOOGLE about how to clean+uninstall+delete old drivers and install the latest driver.
