I'll at least throw it in a VM...to play with. Can't say I'd ever completely run a system with it though...

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Voted No. I'm perfectly fine with Windows because I use my computer (and laptop) for more than just gaming....and I see no benefit to dual-booting.

The argument against running Linux is usually the opposite; using Windows soley because of gaming. In fact, gaming is what has held me back from switching to Linux entirely. There is nothing I need from Windows except the 100% PC game-title compatibility.

Nope, as long as steam is Linux based, i don't see a future in it to support all released games.

I honestly see no advantage to using it. I mean the huge library on Steam becomes meaningless.

I'd like to try it but likely it wouldn't be for a while or honestly at all unless I have some time on my hands

I was running ubuntu at work but now I have a win 7 comp here. when I was using ubuntu I install steam on it and it had a few of my games so I had something to do when I stayed late baby sitting the ladies that do payroll. Now with this OS I may try it on an older rig just for kicks but who knows lol.
