Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

By the way, even Microsoft is privileging consoles over PC for gaming. They make more money with Xbox360 games (around 10% of retail price, I believe) than with Windows games (a big fat 0% of retail price). They can also control the quality of games better.

Your characterization that consoles are for casual gamers and PCs are for hardcore gamers hasn't been valid for at least a good three years, the watershed moment being the release of Halo 2. How long did PC gamers have to wait until they could play this? Yeah, I thought so.
