I am very glad that I am not the only one who uses Linux.

Seriously, it's not cool to use the word 'gay' as an insult. Think about it for a second. -G

Run a Virtual Machine or WINE. Alternatively, just dual boot. Besides, saying "Linux is good" is far too general, as distros can vary wildly between versions, let alone distros from different groups.

Including crashing and being slow. Especially with the macs in college... they are just sore to use

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Ok then debian and Unbuntu at the moment. But I am looking in to Damn Small linux and knoppix. There are game emulators that you can get to run games on linux.
