That image sums it all up. Especially the amount of choice. You just do not get that with Windows OS.

There are a lot of great games on Linux. For example, Xonotic, Red Eclipse, Warsaw, Urban Terror, NAEV, etc., not to mention all the games that run perfectly through Wine. The selection isn't as good as Windows, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any games.

Am I missing something? Are those screens showing significant differences, cause they all just look like similar GUI's with different backgrounds. Eye-candy has never really been what linux was about though, so I'm not sure why they would try that tactic in the ad; to the lay person it is a bunch of desktops that look similiar to windows. I must be missing the point; someone help me understand...

I like the idea of linux, but I like gaming more, to be honest.

If I have to run wine or some windows emulation-whatever, I'd rather run windows.

When/if linux get full gaming catalogue (meaning same games/same launchdate as windows) I'll be more than willing to give it a try.

Why would you ever need to have that many screens though? Kind of a niche thing really.
