I want to switch to UBUNTU having first learned on the APPLE II with BASIC and being a Web Designer transitioning to Developer I want a shell based system geared for programming BUT, I STILL WANT TO GAME with Steam and Origin mostly is it possible? or will I not get all the games and same high graphical content of the 3D environment???
No, there is no guarantee that you will be able to get the same exact gaming experience. Many games aren't available for Linux natively, and some are not capable of being run (even through PlayOnLinux or Wine-driven Steam) without a performance hit.
So, no, there's no guarantee you will be able to switch over directly and have the same exact experience.
