This will probably start a fight, but who are these people who want to game in Linux and why? I've personally fooled with Linux going back to the old 3.5" floppy "Red Hat" days and was never impressed. I even went as far as to install Mint on my big gamer and ran some games under Wine. After I did all of that I wondered to myself why in the H--- I even bothered, as performance was atrocious. And here's where the fight starts: Linux is hard to use. I'll bet a nickel to a hole in a doughnut that the average user keeps a "cheat sheet" near by just to get their word processor up and running. But, Linux users take heart, as Microsoft is here to the rescue. No more Debian woes as the boys in Redmond have your backside now. (LOL) and more (LOL).
