If you are lucky enough to have a game you can play online that has a linux port and runs natively in linux, chances are it will run very well and have good connection speeds, as linux has a good TCP/IP platform.
Hope this helps.
PS It would be better to start a new thread rather than open a real old one to ask your question.I don't like sigs on forums like this.

Lynix is more powerful. It acually lets you controll the program, and such as windows 98/200/xp pro/vista, they are not a realy good program to run for video game, movie, and graphic arts disigning kind of programs. Windows is a good child computer program. Lynix is a type of hard core program. Lynix is a powerful computer program to make programs and ext. I'll say Lynix is better, and is good for people who want to do web disgning and video game program.
Lynix is also a fast program. I have it.

due to its higher technical knowledge requirements, usually, its sort of a turn off for many who are not knowledgeable in those areas, especially when it comes to using the console or any sort of command line interface...
reason windows & versions of Mac OS are so popular is ease of use, with the very easy to use Graphical User Interfaces they provide.
cuno is right about Linux & a gaming machine, but Multimedia, it depends on the version of Linux one is running, there are Some versions of Linux dedicated to running Multimedia Apps, but in general Windows is easier to use & get used to than many Linux OS's.

Professor's logic is broken
Okay, I am a computer professional. I have been in the field over 18 years. I have used UNIX, LINUX, windows, etc... I work in both so let me give you a non-biased view.
I believe you will find pros and cons for both.
1. Windows does have a command prompt. In fact, it has two of them that I can think of from initial memory here: Powershell (powershell) and regular windows command prompt (cmd). You can pretty much do anything in powershell (i.e. .NET programming, etc...).
For OLTP databases, I use windows as SQL server owns the TCP-E rating on OLTP and connections/speed and cost. Oracle is too expensive and I have yet to get an ORACLE DB to behave as nicely as SQL server with large scale OLTP systems.
For smaller databases, you could entertain Postgres. For small systems where transactional acid is not that big of a deal - MYSQL.
For warehouse systems... I am not sure Micosoft SQL server has completely caught up with UNIX/Linix world, but they did put their first Warehouse database release out. I am not sure what to go with here. The trend for cost is some new third party databases (see tpc.org). Netezza makes for a good warehouse, but that is a whole different argument.
Windows - home use ... good for games. Games do exist for Linix and it is ever so picking up steam.
Windows - mainsteam office applications run Microsoft Office. All others are just running comptabiltiy against them, but if you want to roll up your sleave, there is LibreOffice. Not too bad plus it could save you a bundle.
General mainsteam applications: Better check to make sure they are supported by Linux first. Not everything will run on Linux. BUT... Linux is gaining VERY VERY quickly
2. LINIX... nice for web servers running apache, tomcat, jboss, etc... CHEAP compared to mainsteam companies with bloated prices.
Soem of the myths and lies: Linux is cheaper - no, not always, you need the same hardware purchased for both if you need some serious IO. It depends upon the application and need.
Windows is unstable. Not since they stole the unix memory kernal some time back. I have more problems on MYSQL on linux then MSSQL.
Windows is suspectable to more viruses: true only because the number of people able to program under windows, but soon Linix will have its issues. I remember clearly that Oracle running on UNIX was the first database to have SQL injection problems. Major hack route.
Non-windows browsers are faster: Not true as it depends upon the release at the time. Microsoft will usually rule the speed at the initial release of their OS until chrome comes out with something faster, then Firefox will produce something faster, then windows. It has a tendency to jump around.
So what do I run: Both. I have multiple windows terminal servers (Remote desktops), linux shells. I would not have it any other way.

In his defence. It was a nicely written comparison for an updated OS world.The Beatings Will Stop When Morale Improves
