Well except that Windows 7 still likes to try to control your environment far too much for my likes.

I really can't stand using Windows for much more than launching games.

If they ported Steam and all the games under it for Linux, I can pretty much guarantee a lot of people would switch. The only reason that hasn't happened with the Mac OS X port, is that the initial purchase price of Macs are still WAY too high for the hardware you get.
