In a bit biased story, this user compares running games with Wine on Linux with the Vista compatibility, with surprising results. Read the story:
what's the point in making a claim like this when you know linux it is impossible to be true
I want to install a linux on my ps3, but its so hard...
its easy m8 just google ubuntu ps3 read the instructions and dl the free os
b4 i was trying to install fedora core 5, but it didnt work, i think i did wrong when burning the stuff on the dvd.... which linux is the one where i can use a flash drive to install on my ps3.
Yellow Dog Linux is designed specifically for the Playstation 3. All you need to do is burn the .iso file to a DVD, then pop it in your PS3. Here's the download link, it's absolutely free: http://mirror.anl.gov/yello...
Thanks man bubbles for you.
Iv never had any compatablty issues. Idk why every one else is baiching. Even if there were one. i could just set it to run in XP SP2 mode
I dont know what this guy is talking about, i just downloaded soldat, using windows vista premium, and works perfectly.
it's usually the Microsoft products that don't work on Windows ;-)
lol, how ironic...
I got Age of Empires (MS published) Could not get it working on XP! Got it working on Wine with Linux...
Worked when I used XP, also works with Vista. The only game I had that didn't work with Vista right off the bat was Sacrifice which took some tweaking to get it to work.
Aoe and Aoe 2 worked great for me on xp. Installed and booted right up. I never had any problems with XP with any games. But to each his own I guess
Does not work with newer graphics cards on XP. Google and check out the forums. Common problem.
I don't play games on PCs anymore. The game consoles are pretty good with compatibility. I mean. When you buy a Wii, 360 or a PS3 when you stick in that disk and if your system is in working order it just RUNS! The inconvenience of PC gaming figuring out drivers, video memory motherboard soundcard etc. These things just get i the way. I say IMHO unless you like fiddling with settings and have the money stick with console gaming. Too much stuff to deal with on PC's.
agreed, although i like to play some games on both :p i do nearly all my gaming on consoles, but still there are some pretty fun games on PC and most of them you dont have to have a high end PC to run :)
