I'm still confused why Freesync got brought up. Linux + AMD isn't even a discussion. Freesync is also not a discussion if you want a guaranteed 30Hz floor, windowed mode, borderless windowed mode, or even Rec. 2020 support (Freesync doesn't support HDR).

The gamplay is nothing like the original Dooms expect IP content.

Really? No one talking about Doom yet?
I'm enjoying it so far. Playing hurt me plenty seems more difficult already than I remember with hurt me plenty. Maybe I just have no skills. Actually I'm fairly sure I have no skills.

So far, I'm enjoying it.

Re: Win10: My thoughts

Flickering has returned. I would blame AMD/ATI for not having good drivers ready but after spending just the past 30ish minutes on this OS, I blame MS.

Edit: Had to revert to 8.1. Flickering came back about every 15 minutes and was very annoying.

I guess it's a good thing it wasn't for your position. :)
That'd be a sad way to find out you were being terminated.
