|PaulO||The English translation seems cumbersome. How about|
"Even as a gaming OS, Linux is advancing."
|CrayonShin||I think the meaning can also be: 'even as'|
|Wes||This entry is confused.|
CrayonShin's Toshite is entirely different for our purposes here and should be separated from this grammar point。
人間として - as a human
人間としても - even as a human
these are different than
人間だとしても - even if I were human
Also, Verbs need TA form, unlike としたら。
消えたとしても誰も気づかない気がする - I feel like even If I were to disappear nobody would notice.
る ＋ としても has a completely different meaning than たとしても and is used very very rarely.
here is an example
地球温暖化が行われてるとしても気分がかなりいいです。Despite global warming, i feel ok.
one is EVEN IF IT WERE, one is EVEN IF IT IS OR MAY BE.
