I see, where did I get to bashing, the poster asked if he could survive without Windows and I just mentioned that he has to gradually wean himself and his family members out of it. Unless you hold a share at M$, why would that hurt you. This thread is about Linux anyways, so if you so don't like Linux, why even bother to hang out here. The original discussion was about the pros and cons of Ubuntu over other Linux distros.
Since you mention games, there are separate gaming modules which incidentally run on sucky Linux like SONY's PSP etc which run circles around any Windows or PC for that matter. So if I were into gaming, I would be looking there and not the PC. Anyways, to each his own.
LOLZzzzzzzzzzzz to you.
I wouldn't worry about the Windows gaming thing. Windows users use it as a leverage for their argument, when PC gaming is dying as a platform and why most game developers are switching away from it as their primary platform.
The Windows market is shrinking, Linux is growing.
