        Genius and Insanity is very close together.

        Example: Donatien Alphonse François de Sade forced into a madhouse because the other humans think he was Insane but 200 years later we know he was a Genius who imagine the modern world 200 years in advance.

          the bottom deer is all of you

          and the top deer is valve.



          let's troll some more:

          if you think linux steam will make ANY DIFFERENCE you are an idiot.

          No windows user is gonna switch to linux just because some 14 year old games are now available for linux.



          What was really needed in Linux and everyone knows this (besides a much better development model and better distros) was a professional tool like adobe creative suite 6 and/or microsoft office



          You can bitch all you want but gimp can't even reach 10% of what photoshop is


          video editing in linux? well, there's lightworks, kinda, alpha ish

          and that's about it, all the others are amateur as shit so


          wide linux adoption would only happen with more professional distro (ubuntu is getting there but at a really slow pace) and the availability of a tool like premiere or photoshop



          fuck games

            • do you think I'm the middle one?

              let me check:


              did I purchase a 14 year old game (that should be free by now) for 10€ ?

              nope, looks not

              so I guess I didn't get butt fucked by valve

                      Right but do you think its better to wait for photoshop instead of improving gimp?

                      i don't care about the 10% i use gimp for my work.

                      but yes i really want the 32bit color stuff instead of 8bit per color in gimp3.0+ but yes i can wait.

                      • I am still quite the newbie but if open source software is so great, why aren't GIMP and the AMD drivers kicking ass compared to their proprietary counterparts?

                          I use the open-source driver and gimp and my work always kick ass!

                            Not sure if trolling or serious (it's hard to tell on these forums so please take no offense) but it's really not as black and white as that.

                              I use Inkscape, Gimp, MyPaint, Krita, and Blender professionally. I used to use Illustrator/Photoshop/Maya/etc, but those don't run on Linux (well), so I embraced the Open-Source alternatives and guess what? In a lot of ways, for what I do, they work better. Don't get me wrong, they have their rough edges, and they don't have near as much industry support, so you'll always be able to find fancy plugins for the standards, etc.

                              The reason no one wants to use them is they have to fight an uphill battle, and just haven't won on every front yet. Adobe & Autodesk pay for the spot-light position. No one is dumping millions of dollars into getting the OpenSource tools into schools, and internet ad campaigns, etc. But, just like Linux, they can't be stopped, and will continue gaining features and support support until the commercial competitors are dumping millions into their products for only a few unique features. At that point, it simply isn't profitable trying to compete, and new development (even commercial) will be put into expanding the "open standard" tools.

                              Much of the example work on my resume (http://reign-studios.com/philipwitte/) is made using open-source tools on Linux (Arch, GnomeShell).
                              Also, a few things I've made with open tools which aren't on my resume:

                              - Nimrod Language - New Web Design (Inkscape, Gimp)
                              - Paper Tanks (Inkscape, Gimp, MyPaint)
                              - Space Pizza Delivery (Blender, Inkscape, Gimp, MyPaint)

Let the client appraise the quality of game and make his choice if he wants to support you or not. Let him judge if the price you ask is fair or not.
                                Steam does this all the time. They haven't had a free weekend for Linux title yet, but I'd say it's only a matter of time till we see one.

                                As for the pirates... Idiots that deserve to get their box pwnt.

                                If you want to pirate a game pirate a Windows only title. As has been stated many times 90% of the Linux titles have or still are available DRM free either from their developer's sites or where part of a HIB.

                                Sure I pirate music all the time as well, but I actually go see most bands in concert which makes them far more then buying the album anyways and if their music is available through a site like Bandcamp I buy it in FLAC.
