    bitorrent will work in lindows.

    still it is meant to be pretty bad ( from what i have heard) still if you wanna give it a try dont let us stop you.

    i doubt the games will work in it. but why not try it out? just create another partition on your hard drive and install to that, then dualboot.

    pros : something new to play with, get you used to linux (maybe)

    cons : windows software probably wont run or will run badly, no games and hard to use until you get used to it. can be a pain in the arse to dual boot.

    If your looking for a replacement for your windows desktop sorry to say all linux desktops are far from ready.

    osnews normally give a good review of operating systems.
