there isn't much more can be done..... But on a serious note. Games still live in a 2D space. I'm not talking about 3D type games but the environment. It isn't real. Our minds know it and there is little anyone can do to get past the fact that it's not real.
With Windows Office 2010, I believe it now supports

On the email front, I think there is a very good email program for Linux that will talk to exchange, but most exchange servers do IMAP anyway, so that shouldn't be a problem to keep Exchange around for email purposes. A couple of plugin's for Thunderbird and it can handle the exchange calendering features as well. Thunderbird also talks to Google Calendar so either email/calender system.
It will be interesting to see what changes are coming to Ubuntu. Today I would recommend it over Fedora or CentOS for desktop use, but they are changing how the GUI works and that could either be a great thing or a really bad thing.
