LXer: Why everyone should be using an Open Source operating system

Published at LXer:

gaming theory I have thought for some time that having games on windows was what kept me from using Linux. I've been a gamer for a good part of my life and it was one of the reasons i didn't know what to do with Linux. I had a console (still do, and a PSP for that matter) but the greatest games were made for PC's. A lot of people nowadays are saying "if we just had the windows games in Linux we would have a lot more users". But it's not the games that made windows big. It's the windows user base that made the windows gaming industry big! If you would develop a game and you wanted to make money, what platform would you be developing for? The platform with a small percentage of the market or the platform with the rest of the market. Difficult choice eh?
