Eh that's kinda true.
Recently I installed a new SSD in my computer. I installed Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Getting my NVidia video card to work on Ubuntu was actually easier. The installation process was faster and less cumbersome than it was on Windows.
I remember how difficult it was getting video drivers to work on Linux a couple of years ago. A thing I dreaded. Now it's the other way around. Every time I have to install video drivers on Windows I get an uneasy feeling as if I'm expecting it to go wrong any minute.
On ubuntu it's just "go to package manager, install NVidia drivers". Done.

Everything else just works out of the box. With Linux even more so than with Windows.
And thanks to steam getting to play a few, cool games is also easier than before. It's in no way more difficult than on Windows. Even with games that don't necessarily have native ports.

On the other hand every iteration of Windows just gets worse and worse. The menus etc. become more counter-intuitive to use, Linux is actually more user-friendly now than Windows. I'm not sure what exactly they are thinking at Microsoft but I'd wager it's not a lot.

Eh Linux is not without its problems, mind you. Some things are still a pain in the ass to use but it's gotten to a point where you can configure a lot of the system through GUIs, just like in Windows. But, unlike in Windows, you can still revert to the shell for more gritty, difficult stuff. The PowerShell on the other hand is a joke. Seriously, the first thing I do when I get a new Windows machine is install cygwin. I cannot fathom how one could hope to be productive just using cmd/PowerShell.

Visual Studio's debugger is still nice, though, and easier to use than Eclipse. In general I am not too happy with Eclipse. But that's probably because Eclipse is written in Java which I swear is the eleventh plague visited upon mankind.
Windows installs nVidia/AMD/Intel/Realtek/etc. drivers by itself to get you going. They're not the latest ones but they work just fine for games.

I bought Minecraft during the beta in 2010. I have at least 1000 hours in it over the years both on PC and on mobile. In fact, just bought a new phone and started a new world on it. I bought Terraria in 2012. I've started a dozen games over the years, and never got past the first hour. Not sure why it doesn't grab me.
Because you're a "block" head.

What I don't understand is why we haven't figured this out yet.

Did I miss something? Confused

As far as any CoD bans go, they release titles yearly and have done so for a long time. I would imagine that basically makes their bans meaningless for the type of people who hack. They were just going to move on to the new game soon enough anyway.

I mean, it's 2020. We've had cheats in online games for over two decades. How have we not figured out how to stop this yet?
Because we need cheaters to be blamed for our lack of skills.

Devs won't even bother with Dx12 on the PC (well, only a few do).
I hope the new DLC will cause a migration once next-gen console games are made.

I sucked the big one at the normal BR mode with a friend.
Can't imagine going solo...

For the ones that still want to know, compared to PUBG, it's much more arcadey and faster. Also, has more cheaters (spotted a couple during a gameplay).

Oh thanks for that, man. Yet Another Game Launcher installing now..... We'll see how long before it's uninstalled again.
That's right. I'll give the game a few weeks to get stuff fixed and then I'll see if I'll keep Battle.net installed.

Looks pretty.

Really? From the video, I thought it looked extremely dated, like it should have come out 8 years ago or something.
Well, the video shows me graphics prettier than BFV or PUBG. Perhaps it's the editing?
Since I'm on a 280x, I'll take anything that runs on this old supernova.

I love how the servers are completely overrun so now you can't even download it. I was willing to check it out for free. A huge map with 150 simultaneous players could explain the low-fidelity graphics, but what explains the low-fidelity servers when referencing a billion dollar company?

Just look at that lovely error page, as if they never expected anyone to ever see it. >_<

How about player run servers - not rented ones - or at least ones that aren't laggy AF. I have 300Mbps and was always 200-250ms on their shitty servers when I wasn't lagging out completely. It's like gaming online 20+ years ago.
Did you really tried to play that train wreck?
Bethesda is probably envy of Star Citizen PU performance.

The Ryzen 7 1700x ain't good enough but an i7-6700K is? What the hell? Optimised for max. 4 cores/8 threads maybe? And the 1700x's other 4 cores can take a break and go shopping during Doom 2020?
More power to your multitasking needs...
Anyway, the 1800x is listed as the recommended CPU, so it'll all good.
