Games I'm not 100% sure this is actually word-for-word, but alas. "In a presentation at Ubuntu Developer Summit currently going on in Denmark, Drew Bliss from Valve said that Linux is more viable than Windows 8 for gaming. Windows 8 ships with its own app store and it is moving away from an open platform model." I feel like a broken record by now but here we go again: keep an eye on Valve, even if you're not into games. This is the company pushing NVIDIA and AMD to improve their Linux support, with enough clout and name to actually get stuff done. Valve doesn't mess around.

In any case, let's see how many serious games will be available through Metro one year from now. Hint: it'll be very little.


Well, why would games need to be Metro? It doesn't provide anything useful to the developers, plus going Metro would mean the game wouldn't work on earlier Windows versions.
