I'm not that big a fan of the new Ubuntu scheme honestly. I'm running it on my merrybirthdaymas rig as a partition currently. Like Hex said, I play too many games to not keep Windows, the sorta necessary evil. I know wine runs a great deal of stuff but more advanced games still bog it down too much. I plan to get a SSD to run games in Win7 and then my main hard drive will get a full install of either Mint or Ubuntu and my windows drive will never see the internet again. I may try a few other versions out before settling though.
