Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

A multibillion dollar industry that wouldn't pee on your OS if it were on fire because you don't allow any DRM? Dude bringing up Linux in a talk about gaming is like saying Tux Racer can compete with Gran Turismo or that Gimp is a replacement for photoshop.

On their absolute BEST month the indie Linux games don't make what someone like EA makes in a single day. heck you might as well comment on an article about TV "All I do is read books!" for how relevant your comment is. You might as well say we should all go back to the NES for all the point Linux has with regards to gaming, heck even Moz disabled graphics acceleration because the drivers stink.

So I'm sorry but while you might be able to claim that Linux makes a good office box claiming those fifty bazillion Q3 Arena clones is in the same league as the latest AAA titles isn't even funny, its just delusional.
