But it is a mixed bag. Also, who are we kidding, there are no replacements for some stuff. When is a good dos machine (Non negotiable for bash for many reasons), voice recognition, autohotkey replacement, coming?
PlayOnLinux is a piece of sofware which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.

Preferences are tough, you prefer games someone else wants to be free of clutter, who is right who is wrong?
Also, on distro there should be a gui way of reinstalling grub on desktop.
Grub GUIs that is an upstream issue. The folks who develop and maintain that project have never produced GUI tools but they are still the best folks to approach.
also, wine install icon should be with every new install. Yes, I like taking the car, but walking is sometimes needed and fun. Just cause you drive a car, that doesn't antiquate walking.

To fit on a CD due to size restrictions, Ubuntu comes with games, but not the multimedia codecs. Solution: install the multimedia codecs. Click.
To fit on a CD due to size restrictions, Mint comes with multimedia codecs, but no games. Solution: install the gnome-games package. Click.
For those few who may need Wine in Ubuntu and Mint, install it. However, many of us have no use for Wine, so that bloatware is unnecessary.
If you want games, multimedia, and Wine all in one nifty distro, why not try Super OS? It is basically Ubuntu+codecs+Wine+a few more extras all on one DVD.
If you actually want everything and the kitchen sink, give Ultimate Edition a spin. It really does have almost everything all on one very large DVD.
