Uh, well, yes this is awesome and certainly great and interesting news but it is still a fact that a Linux desktop cannot compare to a Windows box as a full-fledged, fully-featured gaming computer. Same as a Mac can't--less robust and/or limited driver support (especially for AMD), no D3D which means many fewer titles especially AAA, etc etc.
This 27" iMac at work has a sick display (as Catleap owners know) plus a 6970M 2GB and I launch Steam to chat but never to game cause, what, I can play TF2 or Counter-Strike? Who the F cares.
Again, cool news and a step in the right direction but anyone who now thinks they can suddenly ditch Windows now apparently isn't the same type of "PC gamer" as me.
