Linux on the desktop

Recently I performed some upgrades on my laptop and the sound broke once again. Sound has been flaky for a while now and I've had to use windows to use skype. This was a pretty useful tutorial which helped me sort out the issues -

But it got me thinking more about experience on Linux once again. Applications like OpenOffice, Gimp are inferior in usability to MS Office and Photoshop. Its painful when I need a newer version of software but the distro is older and so only an older version is available in the repo. Maybe its time to move back to Windows...
