Right, we should fight Windows 8 because Steam is not a walled garden at all and represent freedom am I right folks? LOL. There's much irony in this.

No one is forcing you to download and use Steam. Windows 8 is stripping away freedom, choice, and power, in more ways than just one.

I don't understand why all the people who love Windows 8 don't just go out and buy themselves a tablet. What makes Windows 8 so much more compelling than Windows 7. "It boots faster". Okay, get a tablet. They boot even faster. "Its more secure". Ok, get a tablet. Its more secure than Windows 7. There is virtually no compelling reason for Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 8. Yet there are many reasons to avoid this catastrophe. The stripping away of choice, freedom, flexibility, and power are many of the reasons I will not even look at Windows 8 lest I begin puking.

"It boots faster." You keep saying that. Is that really the only advantage you're aware of? Hell, even in this cess pool of comments there are a few more called out.

All I'm saying in tone down your tantrum until you've educated yourself a little or you're going to end up looking as bad as ASeven.

Its supposed to work with touch devices. Specifically designed for them, they say so proudly. I was excited when I heard that, since I am using a car pc. I tried it and guess what? MINIMUM RESOLUTION 1024x768. Useless for any car pc, unless its in a huge van or truck with like a 10" screen. 800x480 is standard there, because everything bigger doesnt make sense.

Also I was excited about the new UVC standard. Yay, finally no more CPU usage when recording from a webcam that uses an internal encoder.
Tried it. Doesnt work. Black picture as soon as you start recording. Guess some fucking retarded way of DRM.

I also hoped they would learn from their mistakes in Vista and 7, by going back to the sound system in XP, or at least to something that had the features of it, like playing the same source simultaneously over 2 outputs, since so many people complain about it. Nope. Nothing. Still the shitty system they used before. Not even sound quality has improved, you still need to use ASIO or similar if you want proper quality.

I could care less about a little better multi monitor support (actually worse in some aspects) or better virtualization, and you know VERY WELL that most people dont either.

Waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
