well for one thing, think about where you posted this. hardware problem? i think not. steam can be run via wine with some tweaks. ventrilo will also run in wine.

Why would you wonna switch to Linux from Windows? I know a lot of people don't like windows but if you are a Linux noob, then it is going to be a long hard dark road for ya.

Good Luck
