    Well duh!!!!!!!!

    But yeah...since I've been using Linux exclusively, I've seen the number of Linux ports start to rise. A lot of gaming developers are realizing that it's worth the extra effort to port their games to Linux. It doesn't take that much extra work (if you do it while developing the first time), and the number of Linux gamers is increasing greatly.

    Well, there's only really 1 true reason as to why i still use windows, and that's cos there's not a huge amount of games that have been ported yet. tho if i get me new motherboard/ram etc, i think i will start running pure linux, and just run windows in a VMware session. then when games do become widely available for linux, i can just get rid of vmware! After copying any saved games of course!!
