I've been playing around with Linux for years, and recently I've been playing around a lot more with Ubuntu and I like it quite a bit. However, my
problem in switching to Linux has always been two-fold. Firstly, there hasn't been up until the last few years, any game support for games (and the
driver support specifically, has been horrible). Secondly, as a professional graphic designer I use Adobe's creative suite, which has never been
officially supported by Linux.
I'm very happy and enthusiastic about Valve and GOG putting more weight behind Linux, and I'm hopeful that more game developers will start to
support Linux at launch. However, I'm very skeptical that Adobe will ever support Linux, and to prove that point, they've recently killed all
support for Flash on Linux.
So at the very least I will be stuck with a dual boot situation, if not two computers. I would very much like to tell Micro$haft to take a hike, but
without Adobe's support of Linux that won't be possible for me.
