Aren't Windows people getting tired of constantly babysitting their OS? One of my computers is a dedicated gaming box, and yes, running Windows. I'm constantly upgrading packages and rebooting. Sometimes it just feels slow and and rebooting seems to fix it for whatever voodoo reason. And what's the crap with having to re-install one per year? If I don't re-install everything, the system gets slower and slower until I'm pulling my hair out. And then when I re-install, it's like I have a new fast system. I've been running a gnome desktop since the 90s as my dedicated desktop and never had that issue.
But, we're almost there. And what I mean by that is more and more popular games are coming out for linux via steam these days. It won't be long until Windows is no longer needed and I can finally kick it to the curb.
