    what windows can do that linux can't? well, linux can't make money out of its users and can't give you a BSOD.
    typically, linux systems can do what windows systems can with more access to tons of open source softwares. in some cases, due to sheer number of developers in one open source project, it is more reliable with a number of support readily available on their respective community.
    about having proprietary apps, there are ways to make them run in linux, however, there are open source alternatives too! from the perspective of commercial third party apps developers, they favoured windows and mac support because of its number of users, notably the windows users. linux, as an operating system is not a mainstream at the typical personal computer arena.
    with much support, the open source alternatives, including linux, can outperform the commercial ones someday. the commercial ones can do innovations because they have financial support coming in through their revenues. however, it is different in open source projects.
    hope you can join the movement and be a part of a project.
    (i am not being biased because this is a linux based community but just pointing out that there two sides of a coin, it is a matter of the person's capacity to acquire the alternate coin in a legal manner.)

    Really good CD rippers. K3b is great but EAC on windows is miles better. It sucks because EAC doesn't work well in wine.

    Steam is moving to Linux, but please don't assume that it's moving to Linux because Gabe sees Windows 8 as being horrible to gamers and that he just wants to help us. Windows 8 has something that competes with Steam, or at least has a potential to. Imagine if Microsoft started to give the same deals that Steam did, but you can now have them on any Windows 8 or above machine without having to install Steam.

    It might not go anywhere, but Gabe is a smart guy. He knows a (potential) threat when he sees one. He also knows he can make money on Linux, because there is a dedicated group of people who will use it.

    There are a lot of things bad with Windows 8 right now, but gaming isn't one of them.

    about gaming on linux/ubuntu: all top-titles (call of duty, assassins creed, FIFA, need for speed, etc) are only available on windows. yes, recently steam released their linux version, but there are still not much games available there.

    a few other things i miss are adobe photoshop and after effects. gimp isn't as far as good as photoshop (from my point of view) and i dont know any linux replacement for after effects.

    Photoshop costs as much as some computers. Gimp is free what exactly do you expect? I wonder how many people who complain about no photoshop for linux has actually ever bought a copy or who actually would if they released it.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    That's because Photoshop really didn't try to go after pirates early on. They let all these people pirate it, get used to it, and subsequently become hooked on it.

    People used it in their professional and home life. Cornered the market.
