I played Neverwinter Nights too. :cool:
Linux provides security, stability, and the ability to customize to your heart's content. Currently using Fedora 9. Used OpenSUSE before that, to be honest, I really haven't chosen. I like them both. :nuts:
I set aside a partition for a highly modified Vista, and just use that to play a couple old fav games that don't work in Wine. I have a system capable of running Crysis at max. I mess around with code and graphics (Photoshop and Blender), and see video editing in my future.
I wasted too much time trying to fix Windows, move to Linux and enjoying everything about it. :wiggle:
