Changing OS to Ubuntu

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Well, i´m going to change my OS to Ubuntu bcz W7 has dead(BSoD), so i have some questions for that issue. Will allow Steam on that OS and playing all games or i will have problems? And about all programs that it runs in W7, will run with Ubuntu too?(I refer SDK, PS...) (Yes, my english is horrible because i am a bit d...ed)

    Steam will still work, here is a list of games on Steam that have Linux compatability. As for programs, you'll have to check one by one. If they don't you can always try to use WINE to run the programs without linux compatibility. Just curious, do you know what is causing the BSoDs? Changing OS doesn't guarantee a fix to your problem.

Changing OS doesn't guarantee a fix to your problem. The BSoD has been deleted days ago(I forget to quote that). Now, my computer needs an OS bcs W7 has been deleted. About the issue of the BSoD, it was a driver(I think don´t remember what they told me)

Did they fully remove the entire OS? If the issue was just a driver, which is now fixed, I don't understand why you don't have W7 anymore? EDIT: Also who is 'they'.

Good question Mini, my first assumption would be that he brought it to a computer store or something but well if they would remove the OS for a corrupted driver then they're idiots :p But like Mini said check your programs if they work on Ubuntu, not everything works properly yet or has native Linux compatibility but once more like Mini said you could use Wine(skin) to get some of those programs working again. See if Ubuntu is really something for you and if not then you could always revert to windows or so.
