Just wanted to give a compliment
« on: February 10, 2017, 12:27:00 PM »
I'm rather new in the world of Linux, I forced myself to stop using Windows 10 about three weeks ago and jumped ship to Lubuntu on both systems.

I found out about MicroWatt with i3 last week and tried it out on my older Dell system and works like a train. I never knew things could be so easy and yet so awesome.

So a big thank you to the creator(s)!

PS:
Just a question on the side. Does Wine and gaming work on the i3 file manager?
Say Automobile ten times and it loses its meaning.
Say Coffee ten times and it continues to make me drool.

Hi CharlieK, welcome. Wine should work, as long as the game requirements are met. I have found playonlinux lets me choose the best version of wine to run the game. Just look your game up on the wineHQ application list and see which version of wine to  use.

Hi, thanks for the welcome.

In the meantime I've installed Wine and already played Red Alert II Yuri and Diablo II LoD... where on my Lubuntu system I get screen tearing (must be ATI Radeon HD5800 issue in wine), I get a very good crystal clear experience. Must say I am very impressed. Mplayer also works like a charm.

I am loving commandline more and more. I intend on staying here. ^_^
