Windows8 is fine, perhaps the best MS OS ever on release. I have been waiting for a tablet, which could also run Windows Media Center, and stream live TV through the digital tuners I have on my network. A tablet, where I can plug in a Logitech controller through the USB port and play Trackmania Nations or Dirt2, or where I can run DOSBox and any number of classic games from GoG and run those in tablet mode.

I can't wait for Surface Pro or its Lenovo/Acer/Dell counterparts.

I have all my desktops upgraded to Windows8 at home.

As for Windows Store, there will always be desktop applications that can be purchased through traditional methods. I am not sure why Croteam considers the Windows store exclusivity as such a big surprise. Pretty much everyone knows it and those running digital download stores like Gabe Newell have voiced their complaints. For some reason Croteam didn't have any concerns attaching Serious Sam 3 tightly to Steamworks DRM, and limiting customer's choice.

In any case, no one has taken their ability to choose Steamworks, Windows Store, Origin or any other similar DRM method.

Yeah and I am waiting for a tablet that I can hook up my portable microwave and blender to when I go on road trips. Crossing my fingers and hoping that Windows 9 will allow me to do that. Windows 8 is da bomb. Can't wait for Windows 9.

Every thought about just selling all your desktop computers and buying a PlayStation 3 for your home gaming needs and a PSP for your portable gaming needs? Im not sure why someone like you even needs a computer.

You say that Steam limits people's choices in the same breath that you claim Windows 8 as the "finest MS OS release ever". If you don't get help at Charter, please, get help somewhere.

Just because you aren't afraid of something doesn't it mean it can't hurt you...
