To me, device drivers really troubled me a lot. Windows for games is okay. But Solaris doesn't work well either in my laptop or my desktop. FreeBSD is only happy with my laptop, which now I work on. So I install Linux in my desktop, which is my main OS. LVM2 on top of raid works perfectly. And I like the portage system in Gentoo, which resembles FreeBSD's ports system. Sorry for this OT, but I really think Solaris is not ready yet for my crapy hardware.
