    What IDE is more intuitive?
    Visual Studio hands down beats everything.
    Eclipse, NetBeans, etc cant measure up to Visual Studio.


    Yeah you can load/unload kernel modules with modprobe, but that doesn't matter, you still cant reload the graphics driver without reload X.org.

    If you use software on Linux that isn't supported anymore, then you're still stuck with Linux 2.4 and old drivers from 1998.

    With Windows XP at least you use the latest GeForce drivers from 2012 despite it being from 2001. You can't do that with Linux.


    DirectX is a whole stack solution that covers all your needs with great documentation and support. It is easy to learn and you can develop using one coherent API instead learning and using a dozen incoherent ones.



    The drivers suck too. Most audio drivers implement only the bare minimum needed for playback, none of the advanced features are supported.
    Visual studio is rather uninteresting if you aren't happy limiting yourself to developing on the worst desktop os and targeting one desktop/console platform and a mobile platform that nobody cares about. For a good ide that isn't so limited see intellij idea for a simpler non heavyweight solution please see gvim or sublime text 2.

    direct x is supposed to be easy to use but it's only a complete solution if you are happy to only target ms platforms. The smart solution would be not to leave money on the table and choose to be as portable as possible from the start.

    Somewhere in some big company's basement is a computer running kernel 2.4 because they forgot it exists. Everyone else has upgraded. People still run xp because windows costs money, their computer isn't good enough or they hate something about new versions of Windows.

    Linux is free, can be configured for low spec machines and can be customized to your liking. The issues mentioned above just don't exist in Linux.

    • i read coherent api on windows.... i felt from my chair. this can only say somebody that only looked very superficially upon windows/MS apis. if it wasn't paid so well i would have never ever used them again.

        System still throws the VM at Swap when idle for too long, resulting in the machine being locked until its done rereading the swap file for several times. Its still crap.

          gvim and SublimeText might be good for scripting small stuff like scripts.
          But its not anything that can be compared to Visual Studio.
          Visual Studio is hands down the best IDE available on any platform ever!

          Worst desktop OS?
          You're a Linux fanboy.
          Windows is in no way the worst desktop OS.

          I use Linux at home and Windows at work. There are things that Linux is better at, then there are things Windows are better at. Then there are systems that are better than both Windows and Linux at some stuff.

          Only targeting Microsoft platforms means targeting most users anyways since most users run on Microsoft platforms so if you miss out on Mac or Linux users, then you're not losing out on much anyway. Not to mention there is a strong sentiment among Linux users not to pay for software.

          If you have a choice of a complete solution that targets most users or use OpenGL together with bunch of other random libraries to get a stack to target all platforms then most business would go for the DirectX approach which has better documentation, commercial support, and faster development time.

          Many people still run XP because they don't care to upgrade. Maybe nerds care about having the latest software, but normal people don't.

          When you refer to free here, do you refer to money or freedom?
          Either case, many people don't care.
          If you refer to price, then Windows is dead cheap, it doesn't cost much.

          Windows can be customized more than most people would care to customize too.
          If you want to run Linux on a low-spec machines it means running with some light desktop environment that only appeals to geeks. For normal desktop usage, Linux requires modern hardware.
