On PCs, everyone has long been accustomed to using Microsoft Windows. Another major system, Linux, has also developed for more than 30 years. There are many people who support it. Can the Linux system replace the Win system? The answer given by the big V after trying it is that there is no problem in daily life, but playing games will not work.

How the Linux system replaces the Win system in the desktop computer is an old topic. Linus TechTips, the anchor of the YouTube technology channel, has also made such an attempt. He wants to use the Linux system for a month to complete his usual daily work and play on the Win system. Tasks such as gaming and streaming.

In the end, he concluded that the Linux desktop system is fine for daily work, but the gaming experience is terrible. Although some games can use Valve's Windows compatibility layer software Proton to run well, many games still have issues, and even some games play The single player version is fine, but the multiplayer version is not.

He believes that the reason for the failure of the Linux desktop version is the fragmentation of the Linux system. Different distributions have different libraries, drivers and software. Although these problems are being solved to some extent, they are still not perfect.

Of course, the conclusion drawn by Linus TechTips is not surprising at all. The fragmentation of the Linux system even makes Linus Torvalds, the father of the Linux system, helpless. He also pointed out that different distributions are independent, and even modify the bottom layer of Linux at will, which has led to The Linux platform program compatibility is too bad, and developers will only feel tired when facing different distributions.
