I plan on getting two computers here soon, a cruddy old 1.7ghz celeron for a workstation, and an amd3200+ system for gaming.
it's really simple, put linux on the 1.7ghz, get a big hard drive for it, use it as your storage system for files you care about, then put WinXP on the 3200+ and use it for gaming.
if the 3200+ gets a virus, I just format and reinstall my games, no biggie. (windows systems that do nothing but play games are less prone to viruses anyway.)
I wont bend a finger towards playing games on linux, just not worth my time, i'd rather have two computers than go through that crap.
Bad compatibility is all that I don't like about linux, but as a workstation, it's god.
