I’m thinking of switching from Windows to Linux - specifically, Ubuntu. I have Ubuntu installed on an older computer, and I’m playing around with it to see how it feels, and whether I can find apps on the OS to replace everything I regularly use on Windows.
I have a few questions around the subject, if anybody can help: -
Has anybody written any CS games on Linux? Is the process any different to writing on Windows?
Notepad++ isn’t available on Ubuntu. Can anybody recommend a good Linux text editor?
In terms of playing games on Ubuntu, I see that Steam is available. Is the full range of CoG/Hosted Games available on Ubuntu-based Steam? Any notable differences across the two platforms?
Any other thoughts / ideas / tips / warnings?
Any and all feedback much appreciated. Thanks.
