that's what i've been saying all along about android, it should have followed the package model of normal linux distro's and it would have been just fine. now they created this windows-monolithic version of linux and it sux. people who say it can't be done because reasons, why does it work with chromebooks then? they have intel and arm versions, different vendors, etc.

And i don't get it, where does this 'every man for himself' culture come from?
Looking at any american war movie, it's never about one guy, but a team, leaving nobody behind, caring for the other even to your own demise etc.
Seems this view is only valid in the army or something, and in the real life you're left to die alone...

one of the best things about a steam machine is that it is as expensive as you want it to be.
you can build one, cheap as dirt and it will be just fine for a lot of games. certainly if you are into indie gaming, for example.
or you could go nuts and spend a few thousand €/$ on one.
the choice is yours.

I wanted a computer so bad, but it was expensive at the time and my parents couldn't afford one. they did inlist me in a programming class, i joined as a the only kid amongst adults. this was during the boom of the 8bit home computers, so they teached basic. i started writing programs with pencil & paper because i still didn't have a computer. after a year or so, with some funding from other family members a computer was bough (a typical 8 bit, Amstrad CPC464, awesome) and i finally could type in all those programs i made! other computers followed, programming languanges changed, i evolved along.

If you have no other choice, then upgrade to windows 10 and install the linux runtime thing.
Seriously, why are people asking these questions? Upgrade to the latest thing, it's better and more future proof.
Do you expect the next windows release to be better and remove the things you don't like about win10? Who are you kidding?
If win10 is so horrible you can't/won't use it, then it's time to move to another OS (which you probably should have done a long time ago).
