Same as GoCorinthians. Typical end-of-the-month scenario. Though, will purchase once the next payment arrives.

It looks astonishingly good! Finally, an excellent sorting system for Steam... and Linux seems to be a class A passenger. I love it!

With DX10/11 in mind, I guess no WINE "emulation" as well. Dire news indeed... at least I'll be keeping my coins in my pocket in that case.

Feral Interactive Wish To Know Why You Game On Linux

For me, it's about the freedom of choice. I chose to have a lightning-fast system which is stable and with customizable eye-candy beyond what Windows would ever be able to provide.
Should I grow tired of one desktop or OS, I can always just install another one without paying anything. (except sometimes for the devs as a tip) And the good thing about this is that nearly anything runs on anything. Sure, sometimes you need to sit down, think a bit, read, learn and tweak but in the long run, once it gets running, it's solid and easy to configure next time.

Additionally, the security. You don't have your system reporting data constantly to some unknown server, and if it does, you can easily switch it off. You have full control over your OS, and nowadays, you don't need to have in-depth knowledge of terminal commands to get things done, so it is also suitable for those who don't really wish to go there. For me, I find terminal to be more handy than the GUI in some occasions but not always.

Got a bit off the track there... but the bottom line is that I just love the way Linux is and the only thing that stopped me from going over from Windows earlier was gaming. But now, I'm able to run some very good games on my Ubuntu and finally was able to erase Windows from my SSD for good.

Big thumbs up for every developer supporting Linux gaming!
