You don't have to sell Linux to me, I've been onboard since 95. :-)

All I'm saying is: if I needed to run Windows apps with zero hassle, I'd use Windows. I don't, so I won't.

Can you run non native binaries on Linux? Sure, Linux is the Swiss army chainsaw of the OS world. There are multiple ways to achieve that.

Is it complicated? A bit. You're interfacing a binary created for a completely different and alien environment. You'd get the same answer if you asked "why can't l just run Mac apps in Windows like any other .exe?"

The best way to run .exe files is Windows. You have wonderful tools to help you run Windows apps on Linux, but the experience will probably never be as seamless as you want.

I read the first paragraph and saw your prerequisites included working with nvidia.

That is a non-starter, right there. You can blame Linux for a whole lot of little flaws, but most of the blame should go to your hardware vendor for providing shitty support for Linux.

After a while you'll realise that it's just healthy competition, not wars.

I use a bunch of distros, just like I have a lot of different tools in my toolbox. Each serves a slightly different function.

Keep in mind that the motto is "World domination," not "Internal quarrelling".

The Windows experience was worse, but at least your raindrops were rendered correctly.

It feels like you used a detail that you could not resolve to go back to the cozy arms of what you are familiar with.

And that's OK. I also went back to Windows a few times until I felt at home in Linux.

Try it again sometime in the future and see if it fells more comfortable.

Hello gentlemen. It seems I've already have this in my collection, so maybe one of you want it?

Finally, my life is complete. We have achieved feature parity with Windows.

Seriously, the BSOD QR-code is a great way to have a more inclusive system. Hardened geeks can still sift through the boot log to find problems and newbies can just get help online. Win-win.

Xfce is rock solid.

Nice. This is why I only buy AMD gear. Support those who support you, people!

Download a widely supported Linux distribution like Ubuntu and put it on a USB stick.

Now boot from that stick. It will load (slowly) but it will not touch your disk.

You can have a look around and kick the tires. Check out the default apps. Install some more apps.

You can reboot and remove the USB pen to get back home to Windows.

Now download something else and repeat.

Do this until you feel that Windows is not your home anymore.

That was my journey, maybe it is yours too.

I keep seeing this question pop up. "Why doesn't [closed/proprietary technology] work well in Linux?"

This question should be asked at whoever makes said technology. You are their client, why don't they support your operating system?

That responsibility should not fall on the shoulders of the thankless volunteers that do their best to create an awesome OS.

Alternatively you can buy one of the commercial distributions and become a client. Then you can ask your supplier why don't they support that technology.

Brilliant game, isn't it? It's one of my favourites.

Unfortunately there is only one DLC for it, but it is worth it.

The Talos Principle II is scheduled to be released this year, so you're in luck.
