Linux, And Why People Won't Use It
Set up a server for Minecraft on a Netbook copy of Linux. I dare you. There's a lot of shit you have to wade through. Linux is a balance of convenience and utter self-mutilation. So make sure you know what the hell you're doing before you format and reinstall with Linux. Maybe just boot it in a virtual machine. Or just over an old laptop like I did. I'd go so far as to say that using Linux is rewarding. But it's not easy. And I can't game on it. Linux is useful for about one thing (to me): running a Minecraft server. And I have to jump through some goddamn hoops to do it.
