My games run better on GNU/Linux than on Windows - I love it

When I made the switch I had never expected this, but all of the games I'm playing (Baldur's Gate 3, Horizon: Forbidden West, ...) run consistently faster (higher FPS) and smoother in ZorinOS than they ever did in Windows. I'm running an AMD Radeon 7900 XT on 4k screens, and the performance on Windows never felt exactly 'bad' - until I now saw the difference. Whatever they're doing with their Windows driver, it's holding performance back a LOT! One more reason I'm glad I saw the light. :slight_smile:

My experience shows similar results: Minecraft was nearly unplayable on windows on my laptop even when using optimization mods, but on linux it runs fine even without said mods. Big difference.
