That does make more sense, and I do admit I didn't know about this
centralized distribution business for different lynux systems. It's just
that whenever I've seen a game (rocks and diamonds is just one example),
running under lynux, it has similarlr complex instructions, hence my
However, I stil would find myself a litle worried if using lynux, sinse it
seems from your description not only do you have to worry about whether a
given game or piece of software will run on your os, but also for someone
like me who's technical skills are average at best, even if there is a lynux
distribution I'd be utterly sunk if nobody had compiled it for whatever
brand of lynux I was using, sinse it's doubtful I could do this myself, and
I don't really like the idea of being at the mercy of whether something is
popular enough for someone to have compiled it yet, particularly when it
comes to new versions, sinse I'd probably need to wait for someone to
compile a new version of a piece of sofware I wanted for whatever lynux
distribution I used, rather than just being able to grab it myself.
I'm sorry if this sounds negative, it's not intended to be, I'm just trying
to considder the system in terms of bennifits for a reasonably average user.
Beware the grue!
