If you think those are the only reasons why we hate Windows 8 then you have your head firmly planted up Microsoft's ass in the sand. I really don't have the time to list all of our gripes, but you could just Bing it.
Ah so, my arguement is so weak that I must rely on the opinions of others to justify my hate of it. Got it...and that whole Bing thing? Irony.

Just because you like your Prius, doesn't mean the rest of us want to give up our gas guzzling muscle cars.
So...you're saying that Win7 is heavy with the overhead compared to Win8? Let's be realistic, the big hate in Win8 comes from two things: UEFI and MS bootlock mixing, the bootlock is trivial to bypass and ignore. The second was the playskool UI, which was also trivial to replace. Are there really any other serious issues? None that I can find, once you replace the UI with say anything else, you get Win7 SP2, with better stability.

To be haunted by XP in 2013/2014 is a horrible thing. I feel for you there... it's long past it's sell-by date.
What gets me is the number of corp and government users still in XP land. I'm out in Northern Alberta doing a infastructure upgrade, and all of their laptops are still WinXP, half of their machines that can access the internet are still XP. Their upgrade path...is "July 2014" yep. And those machines *have* to have access to the intranet and internet to function and talk to other government agencies. And this is after they had a serious breakin that resulted in the theft of data.

is there a list of supported OS's though ? if steamos wants to take of then linux support for engines is vital.
Only thing I can see is "cross-platform support" with OGL support, and native MacOS and IOS support as well. Which means it should support 'nix since MacOS is a nix/bsd mix. With OGL support as well everything else should be trivial.

Their continued trek is this direction makes me more and more interested in buying a mac.
Considering Apple already does this, can't see why you'd want to switch from a "system incoming" to a "system already does it." If anything, I'd just slap on steamOS or whatever flavor of 'nix strikes my fancy. The real problem is the lack of support from developers moving off the DX platform.

"The incompetence of the Xbone UI" that's simple guys, they shuffed the team that screwed up Windows8 to the Xbone and let them do the same thing. Enjoy that locked down machine that you can't change, or even fix the UI...suckers!

I always though a Fallout "prequel" would be cool, with it taking place 20 or so years after the Great War.
Yep, though a lot of people myself included would like to see other parts of the world besides just the US. Such as Ronto aka Toronto, or Vancouver(can't remember what the name is in lore).

Buy Mafia 2 if you haven't already.
I loved Mafia, one of my favorite games. Mafia 2 had something lacking, but I picked it up last yearish on some GMG super sale. I do agree that there's "lots of empty space" but really the first one had that too, it just made you ignore it with the story line...well that and out running the cops while your car was leaking gas.

As enjoyable as most Bethesda games are (I'm currently playing through both Skyrim and Fallout 3), they're usually fairly buggy. Best option might be to wait 6 to 12 months for patches and mod maturity.

But that's not going to happen.
Getting the fix packs(like USKP or UFOP) do a great job of cleaning up all of the nasty bugs for the most part. If you're looking to take care of stability, clean your masters, and esp's. There's plenty of tutorials on that, and you'll seriously fix a lot of problems.

heh. It could hit 9.4 by next year! Whoo?

What's funny is it actually has a higher market share than vista over the same time period. Besides the fundamental UI problem, the guts are better in 8/8.1 as long as nothing you either use, or make has a problem with it. Sadly my dev copy of gamemaker pro has some serious issues, especially with the way the sound drivers were fsked around with, causing it to crash. Sadly I'm not the only one with that problem, lot of JP blogs report the same issue, and there's no fix down the pipe.

Obamacare. Doesn't work on the web worth a crap, and won't work in execution. You think 7.5 million healthy young are going to choose to get covered? hilarious, Obama knew that answer too.

Next step single payer MORE govt or repeal.
Don't worry a lot of the public are going to lose the insurance they had in the first place. Last count was 80-100m people, seems like a brilliant idea. My buddy in Alaska saw his premium jump 680%, and his sister in Flordia along with her hubby saw theirs jump 1240%. Yep, brillllllllliant!

If healthcare.gov is fixed(for the vast majority), then I'm sure it's alllllll true. Never mind that every story, report, and article since it was "fixed" still screams "it's broken."

Saw that - came close to pulling the trigger, but I have no idea when I'd get around to playing it. Too much other stuff right now...

Yeah same here, I think I'll wait for the christmas type sales, got 30 odd games in the backlog to play, and a bunch from last year I haven't yet finished.

By shaking their fist at it? Remember Chicago banned private gun ownership...and see how that turned out.

Derp. I am running them. Are you implying AMD/ATI does not have driver issues? Now that is a laugh.

The only one who's implied that AMD/ATI doesn't have driver issues so far is you. So feel free to laugh on that, much like your post of nonsense about "no recent drivers" which was also incorrect.

But hey, you want to run to nvidia that's your own choice. I bailed 2ish months ago from nvidia to amd because of horrendous driver issues that have been on-going since 293. My personal favorite was the 310's I believe it was causing hardlocks across all 400, 500, and 600 series cards.

Are you using a US address, Mash? That's what I'm doing.
Yeah, I'm using my address for my place in Florida(Zephyrhills) and it won't work. Gives me a "unable to purchase" type nonsense. Which is fsked up, because when I'm in the US and I want something shipped there, it works just fine.

Got a first and second generation OCZ drive, and both are still working along just fine. Apparently anything after about 2nd gen could be iffy as anything. So I guess I lucked out in two areas, one where I got them cheap(paid $0.88/gb) and second I haven't had any problems.
