Apple use to recommend anti-virus for OS X till 6 years ago when they removed it when it became public. No OS is virus free and it is false advertising.
OS X has a better over all security structure, but it is not remotely secure as Windows 7 is right now.

I also thought a all mid map in League of Legends would be awesome.

Only Valve can remake a 10 year old game and people think it is new.

Seriously was looking forward to DoTA2 after playing League of Legends. The game just feels like old DoTA with awesome graphics. I prefer League of Legends to my great surprise!

Reason why Linux is a flop? Well M$ under cutting the cost of Windows. Aggressively dominated by corporations that have billions of dollars.

I am ok with Linux being 2% and part of the reason why I love it so. Plus most people don't want a flexable OS they want a cage that is OS X and told what to do and see.

Now Steam and Source being ported to Linux could really help the numbers.
Humble Indie Bundle!
Great proprietary apps coming out:
Aftershot Pro (RAW Work Flow) cost $60
Lighworks!!!! (Beats Final Cut Pro) and cost $60 a year out this year!

Long live Linux and KDE

Never going to happen sorry.
Closest you will get is things like cross platform stuff like java, or emulators.

Exactly we are moving into higher languages and operators. Java works now. Emulators are inherently more secure do to the "Sand Boxing." But everyone making programs with "Cross Platform" in mind makes me happy.

If everyone just stayed with OpenGL and moved away from Windows centrism DirectX we would be 3/4 of the way there.

Linux already runs Steam Source well with Wine and it is easier but cost $$$ for CrossOver to run them.

Linux does everything well and somethings WAY better. Being able to play Steam Source and Linux games through Steam makes me smile. Valve being able to make a box would be awesome for them but me a hard nose geek makes my day.

Right now I use Arch Linux and I can get League of Legends working till a patch breaks something. Would be great to not have to use CrossOver games or Wine to run Valve games now. Looking forward to the day of OS parity where it doesn't matter what OS you chose, everything will run.

Yeah glad Google is backing up Linux since it uses Linux for everything at Google and they give the two choices of wither OS X or Ubuntu to employees but now this???

Corel AfterShot is my go to program now. Just purchased it.

Not pay to win. It is soooo much better then I thought it would be.

It's like saying League of Legends is pay to win. Most of the stuff is just pay for convenience and flashy things.

Well this is good for everyone. Steam needs to have some serious competition or else we will get screwed. Also DRM Free is extremely important!

Well I am seeding it on my FIOS connection now at 300 kbs so hope to get this out. So far my ratio is 5:1 I am hoping for a 100:1 by tomorrow

Wing Commander was orginally written on an Amiga computer but it never came out on that machine

Great why do I feel like lives will be lost in the future. Seems to me there has to be a better way of protecting privacy and protecting the public rather then OK all off now. How about a review and no actions till the cases have been reviewed for 30 days or review on all new ones????

Free to Play only "really" works when it is made with that in mind. This tact on F2P well feels tacked on.

Good Example: League of Legends. They had a model in mind since the beginning and it just works. I spend some, one of my nephews spends allot, $15 a month and another nephew has spent zero. We all like it and enjoy the game the same way.
