Games The Verge got to interview Valve's CEO, Gabe Newell, and the priceless quotes are just flying left and right. "We'll come out with our own and we'll sell it to consumers by ourselves. That'll be a Linux box, [and] if you want to install Windows you can. We're not going to make it hard. This is not some locked box by any stretch of the imagination." Others will be making Steambox devices too. Also: "Windows 8 was like this giant sadness. It just hurts everybody in the PC business. [...] When I started using it I was like 'oh my god...' I find [Windows 8] unusable." This last point is something I agree with vehemently. Can't comment on Windows 8 on tablets, but on regular PCs it's a schizophrenic, unusable clusterduck. It got me to switch back to Mac and use KDE (on my laptop). Let that sink in for a while.

Nelson, whenever I read your comment I get a feeling of you being some PR guy paid for participating in forums and answering criticism of any product by some major brand.

Some of us just don't think the criticisms of Windows 8 on the desktop is that valid.

Follow me on Twitter sometimes. Its not all roses when it comes to Microsoft and I criticize them, rather harshly at times.

There is just a tendency here on OSNews to argue the same things over and over, so you get thoughts of mine that haven't really changed because some people here are fixated on the same arguments.
