I save time every day on my Windows system with AHK, cutting keystrokes and saving mouse clicks here and there. You can check it out here: ⠀http://www.ironahk.net/ And you should check out the original AHK as IronAHK doesn't market ...

Yes you can install Ubuntu. For your "high-end games" install Wine: sudo apt-get install wine. If you're not too savvy with Wine install Playonlinux: sudo apt-get install playonlinux. Works with most Windows based games like World of Warcraft and others. You have to have the installation CDs still. Hope that helps.

You will need an Ubuntu installation disk. If you have another computer you can download Ubuntu and burn it to a DVD or an USB. You can do that from any operating system. How you do that from anything other than Ubuntu I leave up to the reader. Ubuntu has an option called "startup disk creator" so we have it pretty easy. Problem arise if this is the only ...

As it's a gaming rig, the key questions are "Will my games run under Linux, or do I need Windows?" and "Does Linux support my hardware (especially my graphics card)?" If you need Windows and have only one HDD in your system it's much easier to instal Windows first and then put Ubuntu on afterwards. There is plenty of help and advice about how to do this in ...

Open source drivers don't use the hardware to its fullest capacity, therefore your games are going to run slower. You should use the proprietary drivers for your GPU. They're maintained by AMD themselves; only they can write a driver that uses the GPU to its fullest potential. Additionally, Wine provides rather rough compatibility for Windows applications. ...

My favorite method to do that would be to install Playonlinux: sudo apt-get install playonlinux Tho you can use a gui software installer if you like. From ...

The reason of the poor performance The problem will be this: GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on AMD KABINI GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.1.3 Unfortunately the KABINI APUs still have quite poor open source driver support, so I suggest installing the proprietry fglrxdriver, which yields better 3D support. Gallium is the open source radeon driver, if this was not ...
