I think I am the person who asked for this topic to be moved to the Off Topic forum. I would have reported the original post as off-topic for the ReactOS forums and recommended that it be deleted altogether but somebody had already replied to the original post. So, I asked for this topic to be moved here. Now I regret my choice.

No reason to regret it. I moved it and thus it's my problem/fault ^^
Anyways... back to topic

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

I am willing to accept full responsibility even though it is not my fault.

PS. My favourite linux distribution was Slax.

After searching through web page after page, it appears that the two best options for me are Ubuntu or Fedora.

I am looking for:

1 - Plays newer windows-based RPGs, MMORPGs, FPS, and Strategy games. Not Steam. Perhaps WINE might be the solution for this?

2 - Is secure regarding privacy as well as viruses

3 - Is stable and free

I will be choosing shortly. Any suggestions would be welome. :D

I haven't tried many Linux distros, but at work I use CentOS myself. Kinda surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet.
