    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    Mac --> Great!
    Building one's own PC --> Great!
    Installing Linux instead of Windows --> Great!

    I'd like to try Linux but I'm a gamer and that requires Windows. So I'm out of luck.

    Yeah, that's a good point.

    I'm not a gamer myself (except for the online game Travian), but many Linux users' biggest complaint is that all the good games are for Windows.

    Because of that, a lot of Linux users dual-boot. They install Windows on a second hard disk or partition and most of the time they boot into Linux, but into Windows if they are in a gaming mood.

    Many wish that the game manufacturers would make a version for Linux, but that seems unlikely to happen anytime soon.

    Bingo. That's why I use dual boot and just partition my drives. Gotta have my games. Though, Linux does have some pretty good time-killer games (like frozed bubbles, my gosh!)

    There have been some games which are supposed to run in Linux, but most require a fair amount of tweaking. But if people could get Unreal Tournament 4 (that's what number we're on now, right? lol...) to run on Linux with relative ease, then maybe we'll see some flexability in the future.

    I've done some playing with WINE, and I've gotten a couple of games to work pretty well, but since I last tried, there's generally been one or two things that I couldn't tweak to make the game run perfect. Furthermore, IIRC, ATI is getting better with Linux drivers, and I believe that Nvidia is pretty on top of it, as well.

    FreeBSD user here.
    The only thing I still have windows around for is AutoCad.
    If you have a Mac why would anyone want to ruin it by putting windoze on it?
    Sincerely,
    Brendhan
