I don't know, I appreciate alternatives and Microsoft has been an extremely neglectful and at times hostile parent to gaming on the PC. I am glad someone is offering an alternative as customization and choice has always been the strength of the PC.

What Vern said.

I disagree completely. Building a lite gaming OS would be one thing but creating a heavily restricted environment designed to push a digital store and DRM technology is not the same. This is more akin to a console, and I'd rather have my Windows PC connect to an HDTV, where Steam, Origin, Uplay, and more importantly GoG, Kickstarter and HumbleBundle acquired games all work on even grounds.
