"1. But I use windows for gaming! Steam has more than 200 titles that run just fine in Linux. Popular indie games and mainstream shoot-em-ups alike. they even offer steam machines as a platform if youd rather not fuss with Ubuntu."

I think your numbers are a bit out of date there, it's now 1652.

Hopefully with Vulkan supplementing OpenGL the increase in Linux games will continue to accelerate.

"I live in zero fear. Do you "live in fear" because you buckle a seatbelt in a car? No, you do so just as a precaution."

Very few people are killed by criminals carrying seatbelts.

I don't carry a gun around with me because I don't live in some fantasy wild-west world where having a shoot out is going to have any kind of good outcome.

"You already live in that world. The only question left is if every sane and law abiding citizen should also be able to get a gun to protect themselves."

Maybe you do.

If you live in so much fear you feel the need to protect yourself with a gun you may want to consider moving to a more civilized part of the world.

To many people guns are things you see on television, or occasionally carried by specially trained armed response police.
