I have some ancient machines I run various flavors of Linux on for various reasons but when we're talking about newer machines with newer hardware why would you run Linux?

because some people (like me) would like the machine to run at full capacity (if it's got 4 gb of ram, and dual core processors, Then I'd like to see at least 3.8 gb free, and 1 and 3/4 processors available), and not with a half buggy OS going 'chomp chomp chomp'.

It's so much more responsive in every aspect but I suspect x128 will be the same way, people will assume compatibility problems without ever actually trying.
