Linux The advertisement wars are really heating up, with Microsoft going on the full assault against Apple with several TV advertisements, after Apple had been pounding the Redmond company with its "I'm a PC" campaign. Just as Microsoft published the third Laptop Hunters commercial, the Linux Foundation announced the winner of the "We're Linux" contest.

For the last 5 years or so, it seems that computer gaming (be it PC or Mac) has been steadily dwindling & losing out to consoles - and I say that as someone who hasn't owned a console since the Genesis. It seems that the only big names left in PC gaming are Valve and Blizzard.

Don't forget EA, Epic, Vivendi, ID Software, 3D Realms, and Microsoft. Those are all still pretty big names when it comes to gaming.

I should have been more specific: I meant companies that still focus primarily on PC games.

With id, I haven't seen anything from them since Doom 3 (other than a few mentions of "Rage"). 3D Realms - have they put out anything since Prey - back in 2006?

As for Microsoft, the only PC games I've from them lately are effectively ports of games - 2 or 3 years after they were released for the XBox.
