"Linux gaming is kind of a black sheep of the open-source world,
a thoroughly under-appreciated and under-advertised part of the
Linux sphere. Which is a shame, because most computer users,
especially younger people, are quite interested in computer games
and would do a lot for these games, including mastering a whole new
operating system, if it promised them free, high-quality games.
"Today, Linux gaming lags far behind Windows and keeps many
people from trying out Linux for just this reason. A few years ago,
the main obstacle was the choice of software, the hardware
compatibility and the difficulty of installation. Now that these
issues are slowly and successfully being solved, a new major issue
arises - the gaming.
"Personally, I have no problem with playing games on both
Windows and Linux, as I believe that users should be able to enjoy
the best of both worlds, but the gaming is currently highly
unbalanced, in favor of Windows. A part of this inequality can also
be blamed on public relations."
