MAC based operating System or OS that can support Steam games or Games installed from Disk?

currently using Windows 7 Ultimate, looking at getting into a newer OS, similar to Ubuntu or Linux Mint that can support Games from the Steam Service (Maker: Valve) and .exe files from game CDs and such

so long as it works with my games im happy, i find the windows copying and pasting recovery to be something of a joke (>+20GB data results in a freeze up and a 2 hour shutdown if i try to cancel it, absolutely NO issue like this in Ubuntu (Live CD)

been having issues with windows for a while now since i got it its been nothing but a hassle

so now i looking for something else, i dont want to see any attempt to fix my windows "problem" i just want the question answered

those who dont answer the question as asked will be flagged!

preferably Freeware OS

so whats the best Linux/mac based OS that can do what i want it to do?


not to mention that the hardware is running much smoother in ubuntu compared to windows (bloody compatability issues, i swear that companies are forciing you to spend money :P)

Update 2:

Where can i get the MAC OS? if thats the best OS for what i want?

Update 3:

i spend more time trying to fix the bloody thing when using windows than actually playing

    Stick to Windows, you will regret switching to Linux or Mac if you are a gamer.

    Your games on CD are for Windows. So that's all.

    Steam works on Mac fine.

    Well you could try and run them with wine in linux. Other than that your only other option is to get windows.
