First of all, the Linux userbase is really small to begin with. Within that small userbase, you have two relatively large groups:

1. The ideologues, who really believe in RMS's idea that proprietary software is unethical. 2. The cheapskates, who aren't going to pay for software.

Who's left to sell to?

Well. Apparently I don't exist! Good to know.

Now, look at the release dates for most of those games. It's great that you're getting yesterday's games today, but some of us want to play today's games today.

A year ago? (AC2, CoP, SC2) You know, I'm fine with that. :p There simply haven't been that many interesting games released lately.

You were saying?

Moore's law is ok. I prefer that law, forget the name right now, that says that as computational power increases, windows will require ALL of it to run, greatly increasing demand for CPU and RAM, and lowering the cost of hardware just behind the curve for the rest of us.

As Intel giveth, Microsoft taketh away.

If you're not careful, you're going to catch something.
