Welcome to the Linux Gamers group. This group is governed by people interested in using the Linux operating system for gaming or game creation. Since quite some time Linux is no more a niche product hostile to advanced and demanding games. With big companies like IDSoftware releasing their games also for Linux the interest and acceptance of this system has grown over time. In comparison to other systems Linux offers a couple of unique features as well as particularities and troubles when it gets down to gaming. It's the goal of this club to promote and support Linux gaming.


Let the games begin :D

I only use Xubuntu (Ubuntu + Xfce) because of all the documentation.

I've tried Xfce on occasion in the past, but I could never get past the fact that the Thunar devs not only refuse to implement tabbed file management, but seem to take pride in it.

...so I got used to LXDE instead. Even lighter and PCManFM has tabs. It still has rough edges, but it serves me well.

The XFCE/Thunar devs are minimalists. They're terrified of one day becoming something like KDE.

U can install gnome still on the new ubuntu's. I find gnome3 more annoying than unity though. I personally just set it to classic gnome. KDE is eh. rather keep it on gnome.
