Comment Re:Sure, but why no Linux build? (Score 1) 542

This is purely anecdotal, however I usually play games in Linux, but several months in the row I get the survey just as I reboot into windows to play some windows only game.

It would be much better if it reported OS as "hours played", not just the OS that happens to run when the survey hits.

the proprietary driver is a pain in the a**

Not sure how, at least for arch linux, pacman -S nvidia nvidia-libgl is a pain in the ass.
I suspect it's about as simple as this for most other distributions.

This is actually the main reason for me buying nvidia cards, they "just work" in linux and provide stellar performance.

Comment Re:Legislate 50% less consumption? Good fucking lu (Score 1) 484

My Miele combo washing machine from our apartment days just broke down.
Good thing we have 5 years off warranty mandated by law in Norway.
They tried to fix it twice, now they have to replace it and they are actually replacing it (on our request) with a separate washer and a dryer.

But 4 years is a far cry from the "20 years of operation" promised in the commercial.

i7 4770K, 16 gb ram, gtx 670, 3x ssd, 3x spinning rust platters, DVD-RW drive, 24" dell screen (very old model but excellent).
It's for games and programming.
2 of the ssds are for windows only games and the last is for arch linux where i spend most of the time.
The rust platters are hardly in use anymore as most of my stuff is on a synology box.
