You do have a point on the installation and availability of software. Yes, Linux does have a lot more software available, but it's not necessarily the same software people want. For instance, my wife wants certain software that isn't available on Linux so I can't fully migrate my home systems over to Linux - I have to have at least one Windows system. Fortunately, Win2k does the job so I don't have to spend the outrageous amounts Microsoft wants for the OS's now-a-days.

As to Quake3 - why are trying to virtualize it?! It's available for Linux natively.

So is Quake2 and Quake, and a number of their variants, along with Decent and its variants, and Doom and its variants. Id software is pretty good with Linux. :->
