What are your thoughts about gaming on Linux? Ever given it a try?
Linux? Not really. Been using Windows 7 since it came out, and I am going to be using it until its support dies. Quite frankly, Windows 10 looks like a train wreck.
I'm on Linux Mint 19 right now. Thanks to Steam and so many of its games supporting Linux, it can run an impressive selection of games natively. And then I have a Windows XP VM for playing some older titles. I have never been a Windows user, so I'm always looking at alternatives to it, and will tolerate using it in a VM. It can't get in my way or cause too much damage that way
The Yankee Factory system was designed for the wealthy.
The weaving mills of New England were renown for child labor
because their little hands could work in the active, machine looms.
And as they got sleepy over long hours, they might lose a finger.
So superior to "slavery"
Well the idea of "wage slave" hadn't occurred to the abolitionist nor bloody Lincoln.
This would be 30-40 years later. Well known for its' depiction of Yankee factory workers.
Then there is the chicken processing factory portrayed in "Far and Away" and the living conditions. Probably softened from reality.
What does our Norge member have to say about that, ja.
Vikings had slaves.
What would his Viking ancestors have thought to a "peaceful"
dissolution of any Union of Nordics without one battle?
What would the Viking word for "wus" be?
Nothin' wus about the CSA
Me too. After a couple of months, I learned how to disable the "upgrade to Windows 10 free" pop-ups.
Welcome to PF, you seal beating salmon fisher.
Beautiful country, I was TDY to Bodo Norway in the early 90s. It was always strange coming out of the bar at 3am and it was still light out.
Had fun fishing in the fjords, even got to see a pod of killer whales up close.
People were friendly, but I will never get used to fish for breakfast. Also had my first whale burger there, it was good.
Except for the part about coming out of the bar 6 months later
at 1 PM and it's pitch black out there.
Ref.: Nordic Noir. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Muslims observing Ramadan with hardly an hour out of 24 to eat.
It was recently at the Summer Solstice
It may be Alaska but the original was Nordic.
Good flick too.
Convinced me to stay in Southern California.
Even the northern part of the State has more drastic day time/night time variations over the year.
Y'want the Lutefisk? <Yum>
If steam can make linux compatible with their whole back catalogue it'll be a game changer.
You 'speak' excellent English for a foreigner. I was called 'a foreigner' in another thread just now, but I'm not one. I can't be, because I'm English.
As a Russian agent I can call you a foreigner, I thought I was English but apparently I work for Russia so I was told on here. Just wondering how I get my paycheck?
Oh are you 'a Russian troll' too now, LM? Welcome to the club - our numbers are growing by the day!
There's actually more of us than Russian's
