Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

The only reason I stick with the Windows platform is for the games. I dislike Console games due to the limited interface and Mac/Linux/BSD do not offer a a very wide or compelling variety.

Quite frankly I am surprised someone is not specifically trying to develop games for the Unix/Linux platform since you can easily ship the OS with the game itself.
