Don�t let gaming be an excuse to not use Linux

"I've used Linux almost exclusively at every job I've had. During those years I looked for excuses to not run Linux at home and one of those excuses was that I couldn't play the games I liked on Linux. The truth is, Linux isn't a gaming machine and isn't designed to run games, although there are some popular titles with Linux support such as Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Another truth is that game makers are slowly moving away from PC development as game Consoles like the XBox 360 and Playstation 3 gain more popularity. I realized it was time for a change.

"The games that were keeping me from using Linux at home were World of Warcraft and EVE Online, two very popular MMORPG games. After being stuck in a virtual world of gnomes and elves I came to realize that there were MUCH better games out there."
