    In my experience Windows tends to have better performance consistency. On Linux I'll be getting 170fps one day and the next day I come back and I can barely hold 40fps. It's like, "What just happened here? Did a setting get flipped somewhere?"

    If your distro's performance is that inconsistent I would consider a switch.

    And pretty much everything else, music, video etc.

    In any other market Linux just owns it
    Servers (LAMP), supercomputers.

    In the end, the best driver for video games are the binary of nVidia?
    Would you recommend buying a GeForce 770 then?
    AMD binaries seems not optimized for GNU/Linux...
    Thx

    The latest Catalyst beta (V6) improves OpenGL performance quite massively. I'm playing Team Fortress 2 on Xubuntu 13.10 x86_64 with the latest beta on an HD6450 1GB DDR3 and my performance is pretty much same as was on Windows.

    Since a month or two ago, Serious Same 3 runs as good on Linux as on Windows.
    Maybe even a bit better.

    W7 vs openSUSE 12.3 HD5750

    Yes, and they work fine, but not LFD2.

    Half life, half life 2, portal. TF2

    And doom 3 ( which I had to compile myself )
