I am a low level xhtml/html, c#, and C++ programmer and have always loved building computers as my biggest hobby. I've used Windows since my first computer which was my moms old desktop almost 15 years ago. I have had my eye on lunix and it seems recently to really catch my attention. I never really like ubuntu the UI never felt right but then i stumbled upon mint, I instantly felt like this could be my new OS for everything. The only catch is that i game,..... quite a bit. Triple monitor eyfinity BF3 and Need for speed are my fix of choice atm. So im hoping you guys can give me a little more insight on either mint can work for me, ive read about humble bundle and others that have lunix games but since everything seems to be gone all most 90% DirectX is there ever a chance for bug releases to go back to something cross platform that will work for lunix? I guess what im trying to get at is as a programmer but an advid gamer should i make the switch? i know you can run mint or dual boot but i like to have just one OS for everything.
