    Does a large percentage of the personal computer using population use Linux or are Windows and Mac OS more popular?

    But, Linux can play Linux games.

    If you ever go out to bars (in the USA), you see a few coin-operated game consoles. They are table-top games, not the sit-down-console type, like Pack Man, or the really big consoles like Galaticia (spelling) was. They are not much bigger than a laptop, but the display is quite a bit thicker than the laptop display of today.

    Or, it used to be that way. I haven't been to a bar in quite some time (cough..cough), so I don't know if they are still there. I watched them being played and they seemed to have amazing graphics/pictures for the time period. I know they were Linux based, as I was sitting by one when the bar had a momentary power flicker. The power reset and came back on, and you could see the Linux bootup process on the screen.

    I don't know if these types of games are still around though, and of course home-based games are a different matter.
