My favorite part of the article:
And though almost every new indie game seems to launch with a Linux release, we are still left without a way to play many Triple-A titles.
I think that's a selling point to switch to Linux.
In today's day and age there are way too many Triple-A games which basically have inherently flawed game design in order to convince you you need to pay even more to skip portions of the game. This is just an advanced money saving method!
