Depends on what subject you're bringing in to the table... if we're talking about gaming, no matter how much evolution does the Linux kernel suffers, KMS, GNOME 3, KDE4, PulseAudio, you name it... means (unfortunately) nothing as practically all games are for Windows, unless you're a quake3 addict, in that case you'll find your heaven there
It's quite sad, because I would prefer to use Linux rather than Windows, but... reality is reality
