Oh, so you have the determination of what a gamer is and is not? LOL! Welcome to the biggest reason Linux will not take over on the desktop. They have had 25 years and still have not succeeded in gaining any meaningful market penetration on the desktop. Oh well, this is not for lack of trying and they should just keep plugging away, regardless.
Linux doesn't need market penetration.
In fact, it is better if it doesn't get market penetration.
If it goes to a place of broad market appeal it is inevitably going to lose much of what those of us who love Linux love about it, as it is dumbed down to the lowest common denominator level.
Please, keep Linux by the geekiest of geeks, for the geekiest of geeks.
Just like the Internet used to be like, back when it was good.
