why to install windows when linux exists?

@eeveelover64 first of all you don't have to deal with kind of source code to run linux...!!!

you can just install any software or (package) using linux package manager. Like: sudo apt install chromium in debian or antix linux.

or with archlinux's pacman: pacman -S geany

Even a 5 year old kid could do it. LoL.

MINIMUM:1.7 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM, DirectX® 8.1 level Graphics Card (Requires support for SSE), Windows® 7 (32/64-bit)/Vista/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

RECOMMENDED:Pentium 4 processor (3.0GHz, or better), 1GB RAM, DirectX® 9 level Graphics Card, Windows® 7 (32/64-bit)/Vista/XP, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

In other words, you should have at least an Intel i7, and a decent graphics card. My computer has none of that. :-(

@The Derpy Girl

There are literally million's of software available for linux, just search for it.

And you can use Wine windows emulator for small application's like: LunarMagic, Irfan's View or HxD hex editor.

I simply can't solve all problems for you. Portal runs on Windows. If you like linux, use this. Don't complain that Portal can't run on Windows, because most people use Windows today. I'm sorry Anonymous hates Windows.

Don't use windows 10, is the worst operating system ever made, (why do u like windows 10?) Windows 7 is better than 10

Also both windws 8.1 and 8 are basically the same

Windows vista is a good Os, JUST INSTALL PROGRAMS IN PORTABLE VERSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
