Games Valve's Gabe Newall on Linux and Windows 8: "We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It's a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we'll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that's true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality."

This is not a comment, this is your fact. If you want to make a true comment, then elaborate a bit about why you never play games and buy softwares. Are you Stallman ?

No, it is my comment.

I don't see you complaining at every one why just posts "+1" or "I agree".

I don't play games because I have other things I want to do, and people to talk to. Most of the people i know have children, so do I, the last thing you do when you have children is sit in front of a computer screen 8 hours at a time playing WoW.

Most people I know are sozialarbeiterinnen und sozialpädagoginnen. None of them have games consoles or use computers just for fun. Neither do I. Fun for me is something else - like talking to real people, sitting by the river with friends, talking, laughing, having a picknick. Why would anyone play games on a hot day when they could be doing that?

As for apps, I have no need to buy apps. The ones that I use are either free or they came with my computer.

You think you are pointing out free speech. What you are actually doing is trying to get attention for doing stupid things.

It decreases signal to noise ratio (but then, mostly
twitter-like nothing-telling comments get upvoted through the roof...)
