News Comments > ReCore for Windows 10 Revealed

The exclusives thing is stupid.

But why is everyone bashing Windows 10?

I upgraded from 7 and have felt it to be an improvement. Rock stable. The windows file explorer has actually seen real improvements. It handles 4k and multi-monitor setups well.

The only thing I find bad is the start menu. But that was easily solved with a third party app.

Yeah it has a lot of security issues, But I guess some feel that 4k and multi-monitor setup and other features negates the many security issues. For example Windows 10 has a built on keylogger that transmits to Microsoft, and other tracking features that can't be shut off without hacks.

I tried, I really tried, to switch to Linux for gaming. After a crash last year I installed Mint on my main gaming PC, updated drivers, installed Steam, and got sad at framerates that would make an Apple IIe blush with shame.

It's not the fault of Linux directly; it's a problem with the drivers. Until AMD and NVIDIA put as much effort into optimizing their Linux drivers and OpenGL as they do for Windows the situation will never improve.

I stopped dual booting about 7 years ago and been straight up Linux and PS3/4 for gaming. I've been done giving Microsoft money for some time now. Honestly I have never seen performance so low the game isn't playable. My end goal isn't fantastic FPS, just to game on a Windows free environment.

Steam for Linux Now Has 1700 Games, with Less than 1% Marketshare.
I guess for once I can claim to be the snobby 1%.

I'm hoping at least one of the stretch goals is funded... It's great it made it, but more episodes the better.

I know you are trolling, but I don't try to play games on Linux, I DO play games on Linux. My goal is not to directly give money to Microsoft anymore, If a game is out on Linux great I play it there, if not I get it for the PS4... that's all there is to it. It's no longer a struggle like you think it is, performance despite marginally slower than windows is still acceptable. Most people's hangups on Linux is just familiarity with the OS.

Edit: Also, I think SteamOS itself and dedicated consoles do suck. I do however like the fact that I can pick my choice in a Linux Distribution and regular Steam compiled for Linux just works on it as well as titles that are labeled "SteamOS" as if it wasn't just Debian Wheezy with a crappy veneer over it.

I tend to only stick to single player games on Steam. Multiplayer games I seem to go where my friends are and that is PS4.

Glad they had the open beta, this game went off my list to consider buying in the first five minutes of play. It's pretty hard to miss anything with the weapons, even halfway across the map. It's FPS whack-a-mole.

This one's dead on arrival.
And I was thinking hey this is cool I can hit things across the map! It's just like Wack-A-Mole.

Yeah nothing to do with BR, just that the tech can move that type of capacity that quickly... in labs... in 2030.

Actually in a lab today..., however I doubt we'll see anything commercial anytime soon. IBM has sold their semiconductor manufacturing capability so now they just do research and design and sit on the patents.

How so? There were tons of NPCs walking around and doing ambient activities. You could hack into each one's phone, learning their identity, hobbies, medical history, etc, and eavesdrop on their conversations. The NPCs in WD were more interesting than the NPCs in any other open-world game.

Yeah all that is great, but does knowing personal details of random NPCs actually make for a fun and engaging game? I just see it a flavor and that's fine, but that alone won't make up for the rest of the flaws in the game..

I am a long time daily lurker myself, still am for the most part as I don't post often. I also didn't create an account until 2003. I believe I started hitting Bluesnews in 1997 when I got my Voodoo 1 card and I used to hit other sites like Operation 3DFX and VoodooExtreme and they were always linking to articles posted on Bluesnews. Now only one remains.
