"Hackers, are nothing more than angry inadequate programmers,.."
Please do not reffer to cyber criminals as "Hackers"; the proper name is "Cracker". real hackers do not associate themselves with them, nor do they intentionally break in to a system to do harm, but instead for the challenge of the attemp.

Linux doesn't run games all that well. this is due mostly because most all games are only ported to windows. Granted Linux does have a nice collection of games, but you can only find those in the repositories, and most aren't that good. as far as gaming goes for the most part the games people want to play are the ones found in stores(most of which are windows only). Before someone starts ranting about cedega(a premium version of wine,meaning you have to pay for it), i've tried it; and it doesn't work any better then WINE(which is free,mind you). in any case, people don't want to run their apps with emulation. so as long as the linux/mac gaming community is ignored by the maker's and publishers; windows is still the better choice for games(with very few exceptions Neverwinter nights would be one of those..a shame NWN2 went windows only..atari got greedy, and lost money because of it). For everything else however, Linux is just fine. I have been a linux user for about 2 years(im typing this under PClinuxOS, i don't care for this one, but Ubuntu, and its counter parts are nice)
and im not going back to windows, but in the mean time i can't completely abandon it just yet either. not until game makers and publishers acknowledge the Linux, and Mac communities by making more games for ported cross platform.
