Fixed.

Personally, I'd rather fight for a while to get it working in linux than use windows.

What distro are you running Ray? What's your computers specs?

Developers can just as easily make their games for other OSs.

I dunno I might be stupid but I think I get a little bit of an improvement with a DX9 card.

Not as much as i would though.

either way the game still runs better for me in XP than Vista :P

(that is, I can play a game, not a slideshow)

I think he meant more of the fact that MS has a monopoly on the OS market, so why would developers waste time making games for others OS's.

I call shenanigans. What was the computers specs with XP and what's the computers specs with Vista? Because I know that XP started for me in half the time it started vista on my laptop. Yes, even after removing the bloatware on Vista and installing everything I use on XP.

And no, I don't particularly love the fact that I have to jump through 9 f***ing hoops to play CS:S on linux. However, until more developers like id Software and Epic decide, "Hey, lets support linux also." we have to do that. Yes it sucks, however, when I can get just as good a framerate on Linux with a game as I do on windows (which by comparison is slower and less secure with less customization), I'm happy. Am I happy that it took 3 days of troubleshooting to work? No. But until more developers support linux, that's what we gotta do.

How old was the xp install? Was it time for a format?

Prettier icons and eye candy aren't worth a DRM infested bloated OS.

It was, however, the result of a "no fight just out of the box" installation.

ITT butthurt Vista users attempt to justify paying over 9000x more for a broken OS.

Nothing justifies paying OVER 9000 for a broken OS, not even Doom music.

While I appreciate you pointing that out, I despise you for saying 'not even doom music".

I'd better keep my head down, before this thread, too, becomes a festering spawn-hole for lolcats.
