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.

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.
