Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

Hey, your Windows counter parts are still playing ET, HL1/HL2 WOW which are the most popular online games, yet we in linux can play them.

Linux has the superior framework for gaming in regards to OS X and nvidia support linux, we have ports of ETQW and UT3 coming and dont need to pay extra. BTW Farcry in WINE run awesome.

Gaming is really the last obstacle left for me and totally switching to a distro. Now that the video driver situation has all but been put to bed, solid applications are all that's left between me and the Penguin.

Here's to hoping everyone gets off the DirectX bandwagon.
