Then you have to quit gaming

It is quite hard for gaming industry and developers to consider as main branch for a game a Linux distribution. And this is for a single basic reason that is almost impossible to control kernel versioning so that the game can be always stable... is hard even on windows but is 5 times harder to control this on Linux.

The hope die last anyway .
As for me, I will keep up with Windows roadmap.

Win 10 is the best, better than any other Microsoft OS so far for me!

I just switched over to windows 10 because my old PC got all kinds of mangled up. So I upgraded. Bit wonky, but seems nice.

Personally, a year ago I had to switch back from Windows 8.1 to Windows 7 and my DCS worked better on 8.1 at that time. Not gravely different, but a bit better.
Don't ask, here's the answer: 95% of my posts are edited because I have OCD.
