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.

Don't like metro (I admit, it's hard to love it with so few decent apps) - don't use it.

But I like Modern UI. Just not when it comes to mouse and keyboard(with exceptions to "showcase" apps, like gallery)

Treat the start screen as you would the start menu, and work mainly in desktop.


It's exactly why Gabe is criticizing Win8.
