Do you want more Linux support?

After having my fair share of Ubuntu I really don't see why people love it so much and really want to get rid of Windows. I troubleshoot in Ubuntu more than actually use the OS since I spent at least 2 hours trying to figure out how to download the right drivers for my printer and get it to work until I just gave up. I could care less if Linux starts getting more games just as long as Windows gets the same support. Hopefully the next version of Windows is a success.

Couldn't care less, the only use I have for linux are firewall distros.

If Linux got more support, you wouldn't have that many problems.

Sure. Why not?

Doesn't matter to me, but, yeah, the more the merrier.

I'd like it if Linux became a highly-polished piece of OSS like Firefox. But I don't think that will happen, as an OS is far more complex than a browser. The OSS community can't even get an office suite or photoshop clone to be good, so I think an OS is definitely out of the question.

Still, I'd like to at least try SteamOS to see if Valve has the skills to backup their talk.

I've used it extensively for development and it was the main OS I used on my laptop when I was in school. It's definitely nice for that. As a general purpose OS though I think it's terrible.

Indifferent. I don't use Linux but if I do; it'll be cool if it had some support.

One of the main things you forsake by going with free software is professional support. That's one of the biggest reasons why closed source software costs so much to license. If you don't want to troubleshoot your own problems, don't install Linux. I don't really know what you want to hear, except maybe that you can find out how to fix most issues by using Google.

Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.
