My handful of favorite games keep me on Windows (all I use my PC for is gaming). Hopefully Vulkan API will encourage more devs to design for Linux too going forward. I already tried PCI passthrough, got it working, had bug after bug after bug so I nuked it.

The important part is Microsoft as an OS provider beyond workstations and gaming computers is a joke. No one is using their stuff to stand up large scale distributed systems. Server 2016 is a pile of garbage if your doing anything for real and not playing footsy with unicorn servers. They cant make containers work reliably on their enterprise platform and they've been at it for years. They have a path to rebuild windows on a linux kernel but are probably too inept to see it.

It's less likely they will design for Linux and more likely Vulkan wrappers like DXVK and D12VK will make it easy for them to push out a version that will run on Linux.

Not as good as developers learning how to operate without DirectX but, on the other hand, access to more games.

I knew a guy who had a gnarly set up with a Windows 7 Xen VM with PCI passthrough, holy shit it was impressive. I think you need a few years and autism to do what he did though.

Just as i prefer linux, but you should know the serfs are fully locked into that winshit OS, and MS is going to enforce their preference on the user. Which means Bing is going to grow and their window store as well. It's going to be making them allot of money.

I don't care what anyone says. Microsoft is a crappy company run by an equally crappy CEO. Microsoft only became dominant because it had a first mover's advantage, and they stole all of their ideas. I mean, goddamnit, how come they can't get their operating system right? Windows 10 is garbage. Absolute garbage.

After I'm done with my laptop, I will never use another Microsoft product, or service ever again. Apple, Nintendo, and Google can easily replace them.

I think the technology that Alphabet provides, is more valuable than what Microsoft provides.

Can you please elaborate? I think Google has best AI technology, and search technology and their cloud services is growing very fast. They also have the best web-browser, also they own most popular mobile software (Android) and best video distribution (YouTube).

Alphabet is controlled by the Alphabet letter agencies like NSA and CIA and so is Microsoft. Money is a tool for control.
