I believe that this is where the opensource comunity in general looses to windows. I dont know about you guys but computer games is how i got in touch with IT and i see that is still hapening with kids nowadays. The only reason i still install windows on my desktop is to play games. I would gladly give up the microsoft products and most of my friends would do so too if it wasn't for the reason mentioned above.
You may say that games are not important but i must disagree. How can one claim to make an OS for workstations if you can not play games in that OS. Games are the peak of multimedia aplications. Just take a look at the slashdot.org site and you will see that every day the GAMES section has the most new news.
If we want an alternative to windows (we wants it) than maybe we should concentrate our energies on making a desktop. But these are just the rambling words of a guy that is frustrated of having to use microsoft operating systems, having to pay a lot of money for them and then getting the quality that we all know. whatever _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
Problem is not quality of fbsd. Problem is that you have to emulate proprietary Windoz (with proprietary DirectX) to run games, because that game wasnt released for *nix. This is about number of installations and about attitude of game developers. And to be honest, would you develop some game for fbsd/linux if u know there will be maybe 10k copies sold ?
Fortunately I'm playing Enemy Territory now and it is available under FreeBSD :-).
