Well, in response I would just say that I run a small business and I don't pay people to play games.

My IT decisions are final with regard to the platform used within our company, and my decision was to run GNU/Linux.

Moreover, few of our employees are gamers on their own time, and of the handful that are, none are decision makers within our business.

Now then, I wasn't saying that gaming plays no role in maintaining the dominance of Windows on the desktop. But gaming is not preventing GNU/Linux from establishing something on the order of 20~50% of the desktop market share.

That it has not is a consequence of Microsoft's illegal and predatory business practices and NOT a lack of gaming support for GNU/Linux by ISVs, nor the "less than optimal" broadcom wifi support in the laptop I'm using right now. .
