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?"

# apt-get doom3...
Nope, didn't work.

I don't know about apt-get, but you can emerge doom3 and all it's patches and mods on gentoo (you obviously still need to own the game in order to install the data files).

Same with UT200x, postal2, serious sam...
