Notice how I don't capitalize windows 10. Because, it's a shit operating system. Damn thing won't even save my microphone settings. Won't even save in skype. Soon as I get my new hard drive, I'm popping back over to Windows 7 Pro. At least it worked!!

microscrap is not the same company that seemed to care about it's customers 30 years ago. And I thought gates was running that place into the ground. This nutella guy is doing a fine job at that actually.

I no longer buy anything microjunk. They could give two shits less about you or me. Why even support them?? All they care about is money.

Linux all the way. Personally I think you'll never look back. Onky use that other 馃挬 when working for most companies who are too thick to see the disadvantages of their system running on flaky OS like Windoze, in my opinion.

[@1044765,HatterM] Do you play Steam games on your Linux OS? I had Linux Mint 20.1, and I got Steam installed. Apparently Cities Skylines can install and run natively in Linux. Well, once I got to playing the game, I kept running into a problem where the simulation would be running at normal speed one second, and then it would get really, really slow, for no reason at all.

The game doesn't do that in windows, but I have heard there are other things you need installed as well so games and such can run more efficiently, but I forget what those things are. And another thing is that I wasn't able to install all Steam games I own, but I heard when you install this other thing, then you can install more Steam games from your library.

[@1201479,twiigss] I'm not a gamer but I believe installing Proton (a specialised version of Wine, the Windows compatibility layer) helps. Also I think there is a system called Lutris which is specialised for games. The problem you had is probably because the game was for Windows and running under some kind of compatibility mode in Linux.
