Linux is cool.

It's nice for people who do not game. That's about it. Not good for anyone who is not good with computers.

Great potential but it is meaningless without support. I am no master programmer to fix things myself. I wish I was.

I may be out of the loop because I'm just lucky... but what kinda of driver support issues really exist for Linux still? I'm sure there's a lot of stuff for Network Cards still, and the video card drivers aren't necessarily on par with Windows, but it's been a while since I've really had some major driver issues on Linux.

Mostly video drivers and wireless adapter drivers

Gotcha.

Welp, driver support is already night and day from what it was not that long ago. I'm probably just feeling spoiled from that :)

I basically used Linux for a solid 8 month period during my senior year and I can honestly say that I really prefer Windows. I always get **** from Linux users for saying I don't like Linux, and even when I tell them that I've used it a good amount and tried a few different distros, they still insist that I just haven't given it enough time or don't know what I'm talking about.

I generally have had bad experiences with Linux users. Some of them, not all but some, act so superior just because they use Linux.

Idiots exist for all platforms.

If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

Needs better driver support. My sound card sounds loads better in Windows, for example. With hardware not being utilized to its potential in Linux, it's kind of a waste, so that's a major reason I switched back.

Most of the time, those are Linux n00bs. Not all the time, unfortunately, but in my experience at least it usually is some 14-20 year old kid that just started using it and truly thinks he's superior to a windows user because of it.
