Yes, I have tried several different flavors of Linux. I liked all of them, but I need something that can run games developed for windows.

The thing with linux, it needs to fully move away from the command prompt, compaines like dell need to offer a linux PC on their home page, and its needs to be able to run programs developed for windows. I think that is the main thing that is holding linux back.

Actually no it does not, If you have used linux you would know that everything you can do in cli can be done in a Desktop Environment like KDE or Gnome. You never really try linux until you experience CLI.

That does not even make sense. If normal people used linux then it to would be plagued with viri and spyware, And as for terrorist its obvious that they use windows otherwise there would probably not be anything to drive them to terrorism. If i had to work on Windows all day i to would be a terrorist.

I have nothing more to say, Just good words.

And what program is that, I am sure that if you were to use Google a little better you would find that there is a equal or better solution, And you probably would not have to worry about a virus crashing your system and loosing registration or license information because you had to PAY for the program that runs on windows. Linux is open source so the programs are open source.

Sorry to hear that you lost interest in linux, but Microsoft is far from the man. More like a corporate entity that does not care about any of the people that have to buy his software. When you purchase you should at least get quality tech support not some guy reading a generalized manual in some mid eastern country that can hardly speak English let alone have any possibility of being understood by any American citizen or a citizen of any other country for that matter.

And at the end of all this i hope that no one has taken this personal, These are simply generalized answers or comments aimed at the quote not you as a person. Just because you use windows does not make you a bad person. And i leave you with this a quote that i have quoted from my SIG

As an operating system I prefer Windows over Linux on my desktop computer - allthough Linux is renowned for being more stable. When running webservers I always prefer Linux!

The main "advantage" or distinction of Windows servers is that they can run Microsoft software such as Access and MS SQL databases. Windows servers also offer web developers the use of Microsoft's programming environments such as Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic Scripts, MS Index Server.
