    I'm not entirely sure they're comparable. They fulfil different roles in the tech youtuber community.

    You're getting a paid product for free, of course it's illegal.
    Not all activators are made equal. Some do what they say they are made for and just that. While others can install a trojan/keylogger and/or backdoor so deep in the OS that it's near impossible to detect or remove without formatting.
    Your Operating System is the single most important piece of software on your computer, by using an activator that you have no clue where it comes from, who made it, what's the underlying code of it and what exactly it changes on your computer, you've decided to compromise it and the safety of your personal information right from the get go because you didn't feel like buying Windows. It's literally $5 on a grey market website. Heck, if you're a gamer, Linux is a perfectly viable OS these days as well.

    Let me break this down further:
    sudo means "Super User DO" and is equivalent to selecting "run as administrator" on Windows, it allows executing programs as privileged user with the ability to modify anything on the system.. Be careful when any using it as you can do some serious damage to your machine sudo'ing things willy nilly <pm> install. On linux, you don't (typically) install software by hunting down programs from the bowels of the internet. Instead, you'll use a package manager, which handles dependency resolution, downloading, and installing software (called packages). Of course just like on Windows, installing software is a privileged action, so using sudo is required. Another note, not all package managers will use "install": pacman, the arch linux package manger, uses pacman -S (for Sync) to install a package. Common package managers are apt (Ubuntu, and derivatives like Mint, Pop!_OS), dnf (Red Hat family of distributions like RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS). rm removes files and directories. Be careful when combining with sudo as you can delete critical system files. ssh stands for Secure SHell, really quick lesson the shell: When you open up a terminal in Linux, you're interacting with the shell, it's essentially a "glue" that takes your input and finds the associated program. ssh allows for starting a shell on a remote system, so any commands you type in will be run on that box instead. ls - LiSt - lists files and directories in a directory. This comand also accepts a path, so if you want to see the files in a directory other than the one you're working you would do ls /path/to/directory  
    cd - Change Directory - change the directory to a specified path. this command accepts relative paths, or paths based on the directory the shell is working in at the moment. For example, if you're in the home directory (/home/user) and  you want to change to your pictures folder you could do cd Pictures or
    cd /home/user/Pictures from an entirely separate directory.
    man <command> - MANual - presents the manual page on a command or topic if it exists. Unfortunately, documentation on Linux is not a strong point compared to other unix (like)s, and, while they may be technically comprehensive,are often too impractical for quickly finding information on specific practical uses.
    A "directory" is the same thing as a folder, a folder merely makes a good analogy for browsing them graphically. If you want brief information on a command, many respond to the -h or --help switch. for example:
     
    ls --help brings up information on how to use ls and available switches.

    Yummychickenblue got a reaction from orbitalbuzzsaw in Valve Removes Steam Machine Store Page   
    Earlier this month Valve removed the Steam store page for Steam Machines, prebuilt computers running SteamOS, a Linux distribution built for gaming.
     
    This removal symbolizes the death of Steam Machines, which failed to ever really be relevant due to their lack of media attention, and the fact that many times they were underpowered.  Though steam machines are no more, they did gve a nice platform to market SteamOS, a product that Valve is continuing to develop today,  and will continue to support in the future. Over the last few years, Valve has been a large supporter of Linux gaming, to the point that AMD now has excellent open source drivers,  and companies like Aspyr Media and Feral interactive have begun porting AAA titles like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to Linux. It's because of their past dedication that I don't believe Valve has any intention on giving up on Linux gaming, especially with the direction Microsoft is going with Windows for the last several years.

    I don't think that was the actual reason. I think what killed Steam machines is the lack of games available on Linux, and the lack of communication around this issue. I think that the Steam Controller was a weird thing too. I would have marketed it differently: rather than trying to make "a console for everybody" (and failing to do it because that's a market already owned by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo), I would have invested in the couch gaming thing and given more incentives to game developers, or even invested a lot in virtualization technologies because at first you want to have an attractive library.

    Only two companies made Steam Machines worth caring about: Alienware and Syber.
     
    Both of which had hardware ready for the planned initial launch of SteamOS. When Valve delayed it, both of them sold the machines with Windows.
    And when SteamOS was finally ready, the Steam Machine counterparts only cost $50 less, and the Windows versions were never taken off market.
     
    But at no point was SteamOS ever good enough to make up for the then lack of game selection.
