I run several flavors of *nix and indeed do have a few games that will run and are installed on some of them. So yeah, I suppose you could say I game on Linux.

I'll game wherever has the most PC game support. Right now and for the foreseeable future that's windows. I'm not going to shoot myself in the foot and switch to linux gaming.

Oh I'm not switching anywhere for any reason. That's just silly, why would I, or anyone really, reduce my available options when I don't have to? I will however be happier if I can reboot less.

The only thing holding me back is game support. Once steam gets most developers to start programming to linux, I will happily switch and never look back.

No I don't plan to, but I'm not a "Windows 4 life" person either.

I go where the support is. Right now it's Windows and probably will stay that way.

Shouldn't the second option be steamOS not steambox. I won't be getting a steambox but I will give steamOS a shot.

Once everything is up to par, I'm probably gonna throw SteamOS on my older PC and use that as my "steam/stream box"...i'll probably still mainly game on my windows PC though.
