Ubuntu - good for minecraft?

Post by MikeC »

I've recently installed the latest Ubuntu release on my Samsung Ultrabook, and it flies! I love it.

Does anyone have any insights on whether Minecraft has issues running on this OS?

I hadnt had any issues with it when I was running Ubuntu 12.04. It does fly too. I had to get rid of the Unity Desktop Environment though, it was causing lag for me.

You should also get rid of Unity because's it's awful. :P KDE FTW. Heck, I'd just drop Debian-based Linux altogether. >_>


Minecraft on Linux works fine. Just don't try to be clever on a Unix environment unless you know what you're doing.

Yeah I very much enjoyed using Gnome. Ubuntu was my first taste of linux as a computer user, but Ive since tried other distros. I havent tried minecraft on the others though.

Sorry. I'm sure you got answers from others already. ^^
Maybe one day I should try it too. :?:
