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?"

Game trend now is mmorpg (WoW, EverQuest, Ragnarok, etc). Never before I heard mmorpg client for linux. "If you want to play game, buy a console" excuse is lame.

The game must be release in GPL. Sure, you can a make commercial game in linux, but no one will use it because it's not GPL. Some people who are interested will make a petition to make it GPL, and some people with coding ability will start a GPL'd clone. How can you make money from that?
