Gaming support could definitly be greatly improved, but that's something that i think is out of the hands of linux developers. If you look at Linux's performance in gaming, they are way better then in Windows. Need an example? Compare Quake3 in Windows with that in Linux.... the performance is wayyy better.

But, i understand what you mean, there needs to be more games. Cedega is a start, hopefully when Cedega 5 gets released within the next few days, we'll see how far we can actually go. I for one can't wait to try out how well HL2 will perform under it. Still no info on what it will support, but rumors suggest it will have better dx9 support as well as 2.6 scheduling support which will hopefully improve speed and reliability.

I selected "Hardware support", which is something I wouldn't have selected 2 months ago. But, since receiving my new laptop, I have really began to notice the headache when it comes to Laptops. Almost every distribution craps out on my laptop, weather ACPI breaks, display doesn't work, or the wifi doesn't work. However, under Ubuntu it worked, for some reason they're different.
