    I did not get the laptop to game on. There is a point where there are diminishing returns when it comes to GPU performance.
    If it is good enough to do what I need it to do, I don't care how great it could be.

    If it wasn't better than Linux on the desktop for my needs, trust me, I'd switch. Now that I thinking about it, I am not ever going to install Linux on my new server, I am going FreeBSD. Linux is becoming a jack of all trades, master of none. Sorry if that offends someone. There is more to a good desktop experience than just great gaming performance.
    bpetty you provide zero arguments.
    If I switch the words OSX and Linux in your post, the new post will mean exactly the opposite but will still have zero value.

    OSX always was slow as mollases. I remember it since 2008 I started read this site. And always will be.

    Hmm... Graphics regression makes me want to go with Mavericks, which to me looks nicer compared to Yosemite, but I do like them both.

    But I do miss having a quad core CPU when it comes to buying a 2014-model Mac Mini to go with my 39" TV-as-a-monitor for using Blender, making music, and play games that take advantage of Intel's latest generation graphics. But with Apple having to make two different logic boards for dual-core and quad-core processors, I can understand why Apple wants to go with dual-core processors for even a high-end Mac Mini.

    But I'm happy running Arch Linux with GNOME Shell 3.14. Ubuntu Unity is cool which features HUD (yeah, I just hit ALT and type "export" in GIMP; very cool with not a menu bar below the title bar), but it does not natively support GTK 3.14 (see images in my LinuxMusician thread), so I've moved on to GNOME 3.14.

    Maybe one of the advantages he enjoys is the ability to offer an opinion about what kind of software he prefers for his own personal use without immediately being jumped by multiple linux users with insinuations (or in your case spoken out right) that they are an uninformed zealot. Seriously, you guys should be ashamed of yourselves and if you love linux so much you should probably try to avoid making linux users look like a bunch of petulant children who cannot abide a different opinion.
