In your opinion of course.
I used Linux as my primary desktop OS for around 7 years and returned
to Windows a few years ago. I've recently taken some live Linux CDs for
a spin and was happy to see a great improvement in hardware detection
though it's still lacking for bleeding edge hardware which will likely
always be the case unless Linux eventually able to go mainstream. This
fall, when the weather starts turning to crap an when time permits, I
plan on setting Linux up on my sons 64 bit specifically built for gaming
platform to do some benchmarking. We've heard that Linux will run most
games better than Windows and want to test for ourselves. I recall us
talking about that not long ago here on COLA.
Now? I'm pretty much OS agnostic and don't have any passion towards any
particular OS and prefer to just select the tools I think are best suited
for the task at hand. These days, OpenBSD is serving me very well as
firewall / gateway, FreeBSD is doing server duty, and Windows is doing
well on the desktops. Maybe this fall Linux will re-find its place here
as a killer game platform. We'll see, I'm kind of looking forward to the
the absent minded nurse who made the patient without disturbing
