We seem a little off topic but I guess it's ok since I already got the information that I needed.
I only use windows on the rare days I have time for gaming. I prefer using an OS that actually allows my computers to work. There is a saying something like, 'computers are like air conditioners. They work fine until you open windows.'
Same here, since I haven't been doing much gaming recently I don't think I remember the last time I opened windows. The way linux is nowadays though it really doesn't leave anything to be desired('cept maybe some games), whereas windows does.. at least for me. I'd have to say Gentoo is probably my favorite, just a little too much work for everyday use, forever compiling.. So I'm generally on Ubuntu as well.
