Linux is awful for gaming...i tried going that way but as you mentioned...Steam...look under the linux and mac os tabs...I looked the other day and couldn't believe how many games were under there...sure it wasn't all the games I wanted but there are definitely enough to keep you busy. And I think in several years you will see that gap shrink...steam is awesome!

I love linux but like you mention and I mentioned before its not ready for prime time AS A DESKTOP replacement for most users.
Windows and android give the majority of users more bang for their buck and extreme flexibility not provided by the fruit. For this reason the Apple tends to be more reliable.
I hope M$ 10 shifts attention to virtualization of its apps within a confined memory space to combat the security issues it has including with non MS native ones such as java. This would be a great advantage in the Enterprise especially with client side api dependencies.

I heard they bought Minecraft so that they could learn how to make Windows 10 really "blocky" with 16 bit graphics and take advantage of the "Creeper" code so that whenever your using your mouse random spots of the program your using just explode across the screen leaving gaping holes in your work....

I run Windows 7 natively and use VMware to host XP and Ubuntu all on the same box. Now if I could only find a legitimate way to get OS X on a VM I'd have it all.

Laptops will become extinct, desktops will become more expensive due to them no longer being mass produced and only media producers and the NSA will have a need for them. Of course I'm just guessin!
