    Nice article Pedigo!
    Thank you sir!

    Linux always for the win!! Cool
    I feel like gaming is one of the last hurdles for Linux. If you group Chromebooks with the rest of Linux, we can safely say Linux is already mainstream. Personally, video and photo editing is the only thing I’m missing from going Linux full time.

    I don't know much about video editing, but what about GIMP?
    I'm slowly getting better at GIMP. I've used Photoshop for a very long time so my challenge is mostly relearning how to do things in a new system that is VERY different from what I'm used to. Believe it or not, most video editing software operates much the same way. And I edited on about everything under the sun professionally so as long as I can find Linux software that handles the codex and formats I shoot, I can figure it out. I've been meaning to try Davinci Resolve.

    The times that there were many reasons not to use Linux for gaming were over long ago. The remaining reasons are few and mostly deal with niche games and rare situations. Both the graphics card manufacturers have a decent driver for their cards and with proton the user experience is so easy that a child can literally get gaming in little time.
    The benefits of using Linux are numerous for the home consumer and the only thing that is keeping Linux from annihilating Windows on the Desktop is that companies are still not switching to Linux, due to ignorance of the higher management levels and the issue of liability. Not only is Linux open source, with no company behind it to hold responsible, but the employees working with it need to be certified and so on. Add to that that "the competion is also still on Windows" and the branche specific software might not be available on linux and you'll understand that there is sill a hurdle in commercial situations that holds linux back. And if you work daily with windows at work, you're likely to choose it at home as well.
