I have had troubles with my laptop running trinity (normal graphics content) since the patch, and I am considering installing a unix variant to learn anyway and prehaps get better eve performance.

The laptop is a acer aspire 3610, with 2Gb of memory, but a Intel 910GML mobile chip set.

From reading this forum, I belive the graphics card is too low a spec, but I want reliability rather than frame rate (or the regular BSOD's I am getting now on XP).

So, is it worth my time to set up a unix to play eve with on? If so, what is the recomeded unix to try out - ubunto ?

Many thanks,


Autumn

Ubunto eh? I guess you like mudkips? :p

Ok, being serious, no it won't work on your laptop... actually a lot of 3D stuff won't work in Linux due to those Intel drivers, good enough for eye candy stuff like Compiz-Fusion though. Gaming on Linux is pretty much the fortay of Nvidia... with ATi causing lots of.... issues.

Thanks for confirming. I will look for another laptop in the January sales.
