    It's alright, its a work in progress at its peak, i mean every update they do makes it more and more user friendly but if you strip it down its not very good for anything other than business and programming.

    Yes, but that's completely unrelated to my post, and why not just use Windows if you want to run Windows software? Although, I do run my games in Wine perfectly, but that's not the point of this post.

    Did you partition your hard drive or is it all ubuntu now? Personally I like ubuntu a lot, it's progressing very nicely and has helped popularize linux a great deal. My only real complaint is the sound, with every new release I find myself reprogramming it to recognize my usb headset. But I suppose sound has always been a bit of a mess with linux, pulse audio is a step forward but it needs to be developed more.

    When it's native (<1% of majorly released games), yeah, but WINE sucks.

    It's a shame, too, but I suppose greedy people will always follow the money. Then again, I'm not having any problems with Wine.

    Yes. The kernel, Linux, has vastly better deallocation speeds and SMP support (multiple cores). The development libraries available, including SDL, GLU, GLUT, ODE, OGRE, Irrlicht, Bullet, etc. (some of which also work on Windows), make the process of creating games much easier.

    If you wanna play games, don't go ubuntu. Don't use anything else but Windows. If you just wanna do shit like programming and surfing the web, it's pretty much one of the best OS's around.
