I'll leave for linux the second it catches up to windows for gaming. Until then its just a novelty to me.

That's why i said keep a partition around for your games, because it's harmless enough anyways, but don't let them spy on the rest of your life because of it?

On any decent, modern computer it takes ~3 minutes to reboot from one OS to another.

Or less if you jump on the SSD bandwagon.

Still too much trouble to switch to be honest. Also, I browse while gaming sometimes too.

Until game makers start building for Linux it's just not going to catch on.

I can understand not wanting to make the switch because you're a gamer, however, Linux is not a "novelty". Frankly, that's insulting to the people who spent years of their lives developing it. Not to mention 95% of the internet runs on linux machines.

I said it a novelty to ME. As in I don't currently get much use out of it personally because of the lack of game support. I understand why Linux is important it just doesn't fit my current PC needs

There are around ~2500 games for Linux on Steam at this point, and it’s growing fast.

It’s already happening.

Unfortunately that's nowhere near what it needs to be for me to make a full switch.

Pretty much until all games get releases for Linux I'm gonna be dependent on Windows
