Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

Games are not well represented, but desktop machines are for desktop applications, most people play games on games consoles.


Actually they don't.

Even if you don't count, WoW and Steam as Werecatf pointed out. Is most likely bigger than consoles.

A lot of these are flash/html5 and/or games made for gambling. A lot of these games are played by women ... Bingo is massively popular.
