Yeah, ccase2k ...
... never take whatever you hear on a forum personally!
Takes a little getting used-to at first but just remember that the person who's writing
to you is doing so as if he were casually talking
to you. Unfortunately, written speech has an entirely different impact .. that is, if you let it .. than actual talk. Pretend to be a duck and let it roll off your back. "He/she really didn't mean it that way."
Anyhow: what I would do is to buy a second drive for your machine. Put Linux on that; keep Windows as-is on the main one. You can now use either
environment, just by updating the boot-drive sequence in your BIOS setup. Or, you can boot from the Linux drive and put the option of booting Windows on to its boot-loader menu.
A game that you like to play, that runs best on Windows, is a justifiable reason for having Windows available. Disk-drives are cheap, and there are quite a few cast-offs out there. It's very, very easy to put one in. Just look for the easiest
way to "get the job done," which in this case is (I think) a second drive.
