How is that percentage calculated? I use both Windows and Linux, am I included to that 4%? How does GOG know which I am using?
Yeshu: Comment after comment about how the OS that is less than 4% of GOG user base is being so tragically ignored.
Yeshu: However I'm willing to listen to these peoples advice. So I ask this to any Linux enthusiasts on the Forum. How am I supposed to get into using Linux as my primary OS?
First decide which Linux to try. For a gamer/home-user, I propose Linux Mint (or Ubuntu). So google where you can download e.g. Linux Mint 64bit XFCE, installing it is not any harder than installing Windows.
If you want to do or achieve some thing in Linux, then just google how to do it. It is advisable to include also the Linux distro name (and version) in the google search because many things are done differently in different distros, starting from basic things like "how to set a static IP address" (probably not needed for home-users who generally use DHCP) or "how to change the hostname" or "how to add sudo (=administrator) privileges to a user".
While you can do lots (most) on the graphical user-interface, it may still come as a surprise to a Windows user that in Linux many things are easier to do on the command prompt. When you google for advice, usually the instructions tell how to do it in the command prompt because it is more straightforward and universal. Just copy&paste the commands to your command prompt and you are done, instead of trying to follow dozens of pictures or a Youtube-video how to do it on your chosen graphical user-interface.
