I just started useing linux about a month ago. I used to use it when i was younger but it was to confusing for me. I'm beginning to usae it more and more as a regular operating system I must say I'm glad to hear that they are starting to do more programming for it though.

Paid/DRM games and app stores not for everyone
I'm not opposed to the folks behind these things offering them for Linux, simply because that can reduce the market share of a paid/DRM operating system, namely Windoze. On the other hand, I'm not going to use them on my own systems. I have true FOSS games like the excellent 0ad RTS game and Scorched3d, but absolutely no paid software. I also remove Ubuntu Software center, etc to remove support for paid software entirely. I also make a point of keeping out support for DRM, but again, I don't want Netflix or Steam users going whole-hog to Windows and using a DRM operating system to go with their DRM media.

Foss games? what kind of games does Foss support any first game shooters? I did a quick search and i saw a couple games but they were more like flash games by the looks

No, I am not playing any FPS titles
I thought some of the OpenArena/Xonotic type games commonly benchmarked here were shooters, but I've never played them. All these games are very large downloads if nothing else.
