    Lubuntu with nothing changed. Works pretty well. Some system stuff, like the Software center and everything that has anything to do with managing packets and so on, are brutally slow for some reason, but otherwise it works very well. It's even snappy! :laugh:

    And my wireless Logitec M305 which I thought was dead because windows doesn't recognize it? Works too. As well as the printer, just like that. I had to install some additional stuff to make the WLAN work though.

    Yeah it is a bit weird that.. I was on Xubuntu (6.10 I think so it was a while ago) full time for at least 6 months. Nothing really worked they way it was supposed to, but most things I wanted I eventually got going. I wouldn't use it as my main system actually, but sometimes I get into the tinkering spirit and then Linux is awesome.

    This machine will essentially be a typewriter though so I'm shouldn't have to mess about with it too much but anything can happen. :)

    Also, now mouse gestures on the trackpad works.

    Linux are excellent work machines. It's hard to take Microsoft serious after they launched 2012 with the metro interface. Seriously.

    Not great looking UIs, I save those for my home machines.

    I found this screenshot on Distrowatch - it's not mine, but I think it's the sexiest screenshot of a desktop I've ever seen in my life:

    Now if only they'd put a comma after "fast" my life would be complete.

    That is not a full Desktop Environment, but a WM (normally part of a DE) which is in this case one that can be used autonomously (as a minimal desktop). I assume it is Openbox, Blackbox or IceWM.

    since its stickied to the front page, i guess its ok to revive that thread? huuuu step on!

    standard Ubuntu 13.04 RR atm on my 3rd rig wich act also as a steambox
    and hardware recognition is weird ... my R.A.T.7 wasnt fully functional while under win7 no probs ... so i use a OEM HP crap mouse atm ... doh!
    [​IMG]
    strange 3.9gio ram and i have 8gb the 13.04 is also 64bits... i wonder why only 3.9gio is recognised and 8gb in the bios

    mainly steambox but mostly emulator and linux test rig, i pick several different distro per month to try them and see what differ between them.

    well PCSX on linux lacks some resolution sharpening and filter that the windows counterpart has but still its emulated near flawlessly and smooth

    FFVIII is from where come my forum name here and my nickname that i bear since 2000 ... Squall :D

    update Unigine Heaven 4.0

    Looks much more like TES IV: Oblivion icon, not Skyrim's (which has an icon with that dragon it has on the box cover)
    And yeah, probably Wine. Oblivion runs perfectly well on it.

    Yeah it's based on Arch. And I'm in fact using Wine, it works pretty well with oblivion, and classic game emulators. I've been trying to spread the word about Manjaro, I find it far better, and easier to use than Mint and Ubuntu, with stability on par with Debian. And Pacman is a dream to use. Also driver management is so much less of a hassle, and there is a far smaller chance of anything breaking. I had a proprietary display driver completely destroy my Mint install in a flash. I highly recommend Manjaro to pretty much anyone, it would have a much better first impression to noobies than Ubuntu I think. I notice that alot of people think Ubuntu is the easiest, and best distro that Linux has, they end up hating it, and get driven them away from Linux because Ubuntu is a really sub par distro, atleast in my opinion.

    Using this install of Xubuntu 13.10 for gaming on the desktop. Everything runs great with Kerbal Space Program and hopefully Metro: Last Light will too.
