    Games. The simple reason why I still have windows installed. I really hope SteamOS can bring about a change in this over the next ten or so years.

    That's one of the big things for me too.

    I may be able to use Minecraft on Linux if I can get it to not drop to 3 or 5fps! I have to look at what can I do with the video drivers.

    Then I can attempt World of Tanks through PlayOnLinux, but until then... I have to use Windows (on the same machine, so I know it COULD work).

    Well, I don't play games. I do like to experiment with Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) and Python. But I will say, Linux can't run AutoCAD and I don't see any substitute that is affordable or that is not difficult to learn after working with Acad.

    Indeed, but correct thing to say would be that; Auto-CAD developers aren't interested in Linux platforms. Though, I've seen some semi decent 2D operating softwares on Linux, 3D is really a very big question mark.

    Why not try FreeCAD?

    Bluray playback direct from the disc would be nice.

    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Music composing is a weakness of linux--- I can not find anything comparable to Sibelius on linux with the incredible Sibelius Sounds library that comes with Sibelius; MuseScore is interesting but nothing close to Sibelius. I and many others have expensive libraries of composing sounds/instruments (sampled, not virtual/synth) like Symphobia, Cinematic Strings, EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, and there is not way to use these in linux, thus I and others need to use Windows/Mac for music composing and sequencing if we want real orchestral sounds. Linux has DAWs but without access to what I have described, the DAWs are not able to be used with the professional sampled instrument libraries.
