Anyway, I recently moved from Windows COMPLETELY to Linux, and i must say, best decision ever! Super fast, sleek, elegant, you name it. I'm running PeppermintOS 3, if you wondered.
One problem most ex-Windows users face is gaming, but luckily there is Wine!
I'm not a hardcore gamer, I only like playing some classics with my friends, Age of Empires II and Battlefield 2. I got AOE working with LAN, but I'm having some problems with BF2.
I'm proud that I installed BF2 mostly myself, reading some tutorials here and there. I'm installing games through PlayOnLinux. I noticed that in BF2, my performance was greatly reduced. I can clearly see the difference between running on windows and Linux. I remember to fix one of the problems, I had to disable glsl, to fix some terrain issues. So my main question is, how can I improve the speed? Here is my graphics card information:
