skinink: He should worry less about NVidia and should say something about the numerous distros out there, many looking very unpolished, lacking basic documentation and a biatch to configure.

But enough about Windows 8.

No matter. I personally prefer AMD and ATI. With them I can do more things- like cook my lunch using just the surface of the processors while I play high-end, resource-intensive games like Super Mario Brothers.

Gonz: Dr. Mojo PhD: Still, the reality is the market share for Linux is at 1.03%, while the marketshare across XP/Vista/7/OS X 10.4-10.7 is 90.61%. It's little surprise where and why Nvidia sees its money and time best spent.

No, the reality is that the future trend seems to be more towards tablets and mobile devices, and in that market, an OS running the Linux kernel (Android) is in a solid second place, only behind BSD.

Windows has towers and laptops locked up fairly well. Phones and tablets, though? BSD and Linux run those.

Actually android (linux) is in first place at around 45+%, apple's OS (BSD to you...) is 30%+.

Who knew making an OS and letting all phone companies use them would get you more market share.

wildcardjack: Sooo... Is ATI farking Linux friendly?

I only ask because... I used to give a fark.

I'm just about to buy a new Win7 machine with biatch'in graphics to avoid Win8. I really don't need a new machine but the fan is rattling in my 20 month old HP DV7.

/I can afford a $2k Alienware rig

I've got to be missing something because:
1. Buy new fan
2. Open case
3. Replace fan
