Mostly yay, there's an increasing number of games for linux (mostly low to mid-tier indies, but also some AAAs) and many non-natively supported games run well on Proton. Check out www.protondb.com.So who uses Linux for vidya? what are your experiences so far, yay or nay?
re: Gentoo sperging
I attest that it's not that of a high-maintenance system that many seem to paint it as such. Though it's quite likely that any first-time linux user will stumble around for some time due to information overload, until they settle themselves and feel comfortable. Then it's ez as pie and very amenable to non-standard shit for which the binary distros are less friendly.
Adding to what was already said in this thread, systemd is a complex piece of software in a critical space (e.g. init system) for the whole OS. You want your software in such places to be as simple as possible and easy to inspect because bugs will be fatal. Systemd has a bad track record on OS-killing bugs due to its init handling responsibilities.Why is systemd shit? I've read a lot of arguments on both sides, but I still don't really follow them.
Old-school init systems of Unix are dumb as a box of rocks and That's A Good Thing™. They basically spawn processes with fork() and wait until any child process dies and than wait()s for it to clean up system resources.
I had never, ever heard that one. How many other secret man pages that don't correspond to a program are lurking out there?
Manpages are divided into sections. Check out "man man", notice the difference between "man printf" and "man 3 printf". Dive into /usr/share/manSection 3 manpages provide documentation for C, does that count?
