If you have never used Linux before (namely Ubuntu) and never used Windows 8 before, how likely is the average joe going to switch to it just for gaming? [/quote:

IMO once you get even a little under the hood, Linux is vastly different from Windows. Grandma might not notice much difference but most people will. If you run into any issues, and you will if you are a regular gamer, you'll be diagnosing and fixing annoying issues and problems for hours or days. It can be a good gaming platform, but I've never used a Linux distribution that 'just worked' for gaming.
