On serious note, Just like bearclaw and six I did tried linux on several occasions, longest I went on linux was for about a week. I got tired of trying to fix the OS, and getting programs/games to work, WINE was (and probably still is) useless. Re-formated and was done with it.

Scanner wouldn't work correctly, linux changed my 4800 x 4800 dpi scanner to max 200dpi, couldn't get it any higher.
EOS Utility would not work, couldn't get the Teethered Capture to work in either EOS Utility or Lightroom.
Photoshop was slower(barely worked), probably because of lack and or Problem with video acceleration.
Linux didn't know what to do with my High End Canopus HD Video Capture card
Office 2007 had issues under WINE, and Open Office is a joke.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
