2. Re: Windows 8 Oct 31, 2012, 08:22 DanteUK
 
Oh, sorry Gabe, I just wanted to play the 40 game I just bought, maybe I should wait till you're less busy and it's more convenient to you.

Steams sucks always has. I don't want it on my Linux machine, but then installing Linux has just gone from dead simple to a nightmare thanks to Secure-boot.
Every single laptop and PC in PC World today was installed with Windows 8 and the staff have no idea which if any of the laptops can have secure boot turned off. If it's not Microsoft they know nothing.
Microsoft have killed the PC. I remember when the P stood for personal. It was mine to install whatever OS I wanted, whatever software I owned whenever I wanted. Not today. Today we have MSC's (MicroSoft Computers) or AC ( Apple Computers ) all locked down and restricted.
The PC is almost dead. only legacy hardware remains open now.
