Re: Vista vs Fedora (on terms of hacking)

You can always dual-boot. Linux doesn't have many games but there are some awesome ones for it. Many are in the repositories. My favorite game lately is BoS Wars.

Re: Why Ubuntu is a Terrible Distro

Ubuntu disables the root account by default for security purposes. Ubuntu attracts a large amount of new Linux users, therefore to keep their box from getting hijacked they disable the root account.

If so, then yes, your box is vulnerable. First things first, be sure to install a firewall. At least one to suppl...
