Thinking of starting with Linux.

Writing on behalf of my husband, he's very fed up with our current operating system, and wants to try something less invasive wink (hopefully)  We're considering Linux - is it hard to get to grips with?  And is there any hope that he can at some point use his Farming Simulator 2015 on it, along with Giants Editor?

I know I am a bit late replying, but here is an answer anyhow.

 

Is linux hard?  Not really.  I would give a resounding NO, but there are a few edge cases I will warn you about.  Usage in and of itself is quite easy.  Determining what is the replacement application for what you are used to with Mac/Windows is not always an easy one.  The two markets that are a bit iffy are the financial and gaming ones.  Basic and extremely focused are where linux sits with the financial side -- not so much in between.  I had a client that ran a stock brokerage and his firm could run everything on linux except one app, so most desktops were therefore Windows.

Gaming is alot better now than a few years ago even.  Most games are either native or work well in Wine.  For your game :
