so ive been convinced to switch to linux from vista (i know... it came on my laptop)
how good does cedega and wine run windows apps and games?
windows eats too much ram and all i use the laptop for is gaming so i was wondering if there were better alternatives to windows for gaming.
im talking about games like FEAR hl2 nad oblivion
Cedega works pretty well, but game performance will generally suffer quite a bit. Also, it can take them a while to support the latest stuff.
If all you use the laptop for is gaming you'd definitely be best off sticking with Windows.
Vista uses RAM better than XP did. Read this: http://www.anandtech.com/systems/sho...spx?i=2917&p=2
Just because it shows RAM being used, doesn't mean it won't give up RAM for higher priority processes.
okay thx, the 500mb of ram on idle just kinda scared me
