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."

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.

Good for you ... but I like playing COD and Capcom vs SNK.

That must make you feel really superior. We all know that only stupid people and children play games and buy software.

I never said that... if you feel that I meant that I was superior to you it says more about your own self-worth then it says about me.
