Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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.

"The games that were keeping me from using Linux at home were
World of Warcraft and EVE Online, two very popular MMORPG games.

realize that there were MUCH better games out there."
