I agree with Mr T.

If you're just using it for everyday tasks, listening to music, watching videos or whatever, go with Ubuntu (or one of the other friendly Linux distros).

However, if you want the familiarity of Windows and want to indulge in gaming - Windows 7 all the way.

:-k Well for the longest time I used my computer for gaming, surfing, music, etc.

Gaming - 70%
Surfing & music, etc - 30%

But as of late that has now switched to:

Gaming - 30%
Surfing & music, etc - 70%

This has happened because I haven't liked many new games. I find myself having to fall back on older titles.

So would a dual boot be a viable option? This way I can play games when I wanted, then switch back later.

What would be the top 5 user friend Linux distros? Easy to install, updates often, plug n play friendly, etc??
