< report >I try to run this VN in linux mint, there a few app in linux can be use for run VN direct from linux but I getting error message in computer language I don't understand.
So I decided to install window 10 it run very fast in window 10. I think window 10 not that's bad like linux fanboy say & about microsoft privacy it can be remove using this sofware warning (after you using this sofware you cannot longer using app from window store & update your window) linkLast modified on 2017-02-11 at 19:31

< report >Running Linux games on (correct) version of Linux is as easy as running Windows game on Windows.

Running Windows games on Linux is sometimes possible, but it is generally somewhat difficult and requires people trying to do it to at least understand the "computer language". Dealing with gory tech details is often needed.

Edit: Running Linux games on Windows is not easy as well.Last modified on 2017-02-11 at 21:17

< report >No shit linux can't run windows games. Out of the box anyway.

However, with Wine, PlayOnLinux, and a bit of googling you can get lucky with a VN if it's simple enough.

Hell some games run with just wine if you remember to set it in japanese locale first.

When I first got linux I went through the hassle of trying to figure out every steup for each game, but the overall setup time per game grated on me.

Now I just run win10 in a virtual machine to make it easier on myself.

< report >I just installed virtual Win XP to play VNs on my Linux laptop, easier to deal with than Wine for the most part.
Of course newer VNs might not run on XP, but I can play those on desktop with Windows, the laptop is just for when I'm on the road.

< report >@7 Don't really see how that's useful, you can say 'native' but it's closer to the exact opposite of Wine, except far less compatibility with linux programs. What's the point?

Also win10 is still kind of shit. I skimmed over the first post last time i was here but you are turning off ALL updates to get rid of the snooping stuff???

thats a bad idea... especially considering the average VN players tendency of downloading random files from torrents.

Try Spybot Anti Beacon, it probably doesn't turn off all the snooping stuff (because you cant) but it allows you to keep your system updated at least.

< report >Weren't updates impossible to turn off in Windows 10?
I have no experience with Win 10 but from what I've heard you can't even tamper with updates in the Home edition and can only "delay" them in Pro (and probably higher), whatever "delay" actually means. But I have no idea if that's true, false, or formerly true and out-of-date now. But it's one of the reasons I've been avoiding Win 10 besides all the spyware features that are already there.

That's a bad idea... especially considering the average VN player's tendency of downloading random files from torrents.
Isn't that what anti-virus (potentially multiple) and sandbox (if really in doubt) is for?Last modified on 2017-02-13 at 13:20

< report >I not window fanboy or linux fanboy , it really useful features in my opinion because You might want to run Bash on Ubuntu on Windows because you want or need to use Windows otherwise, and don't want to have to reboot into Ubuntu or spin up a virtual machine.

Why not Cygwin? Because Cygwin is not native Linux. It's Unix tools ported to and recompiled for Windows. Bash on Ubuntu on Windows allows you to run regular user-mode Ubuntu binaries natively on Windows. They aren't special Windows versions of the binaries, and they aren't running in a virtual machine.

but a lot of web developers/designers switch to Mac because they need photoshop and bash without dealing with VMs, dual boot or wine

this feature makes windows a viable option for thoseLast modified on 2017-02-13 at 13:31

< report >@9 Yea, those things help, but running unupdated windows versions for long periods of time is just asking to be infected really.

Antivirus usually aren't that much help anyway.

@10 Looked it up a bit, seems it useful for command line programs as long as they aren't doing anything too complicated. And a few lucky graphical ones.
Seems like it would actually be useful after more time.

< report >Well I'm not against Win updates in general, I just like to have control over what updates actually get downloaded and installed. Don't want Microsoft sneaking in additional spyware.

Security updates are usually a must, but I filter the rest.

And I wouldn't write AVs off entirely. Sure most won't protect you from the super latest threats, but you can regulate that simply by being careful. If you download/torrent stuff that has been around for a while (not uploaded recently) it's not likely to infect you with cutting-edge malware and a decent AV can detect the rest.
