For servers and programming, I'll probably use Linux,
For gaming, office, school, and beyond, I'll use windows cause most games are ported for Windows

Windows however, has much better compatability for most of the things I do and the Linux alternatives just don't cut it (eg GIMP is nowhere near as good as Photoshop)
For the average computer owner Linux is also not user friendly enough and installing it can be quite a challenge for someone new to it.
Anyone wanting to try out linux for the first time should download Knoppix. It can just run off the CD-ROM and is pretty easy to use

However, for gaming in all forms it's pretty much useless.
Anything network and file oriented running Linux, beats the hell outta Windows, but Windows rules in every other aspect.
It's just a matter of what your needs are.
