Living The PC-BSD Lifestyle

Aug 28, 2009, 14:33 (0 Talkback[s])

"First things first, can I play my favorite games? The answer (for me) is absolutely! I am a huge fan of Valve and their Steam client because I tend to scratch or lose CD’s. I created my Steam account in 2004 when I purchased Half-Life 2, although I never finished the game because my computer could not handle it. 45 minute loading screens do not work for me...

"So, I forgot about Valve for awhile and moved on to other hobbies, namely music and web design. When I was away from my drumset, I was on my PC hacking away at local band websites, doing photomanipulation in Photoshop, or creating Classic Nintendo remixes in Sony Music Studio (formerly Acid Pro). I was also dual-booting random Linux distros (with much displeasure), because I got tired of the constant degredation of performance on my Windows box. I found that I couldn’t enjoy most of my computer related hobbies on Linux, and worse yet, most of the websites I was developing or visiting didn’t work or look the same. So I forgot about Linux for awhile, too."
