News Comments > Windows 10 Outperforms SteamOS

Does Steam OS also hang like Windows 10 for up to a minute at times for no apparent reason while opening just about anything/everything?

I don't have a Steam Machine so all I can comment on is 10. I regret trying out the free upgrade. It is better than Windows 8 but is not really ready for prime time. My up to date Nvidia drives are constantly crashing in aps and while using the edge browser. YouTube videos are also going black screen with only audio. I think this weekend is rollback time.

You've got something else going on and not necessarily a Window 10 thing. I've been building my own gaming rigs for years, and Win10 flies on my 4 year old machine. I haven't had one crash and I play a lot of games. And I really push this thing hard with gaming, programming, music recording, etc, and it just feels like the most stable OS they've ever made. I even have apps that were released 10 years ago that still work. Even my audio interface that's 8 years old still works even with the old drivers! Does anyone have that kind of backwards compatibilty with OS X or Linux? No freakin' way! Hate MS all you want, but the alternatives aren't that great either.

Wow, Tim Cook making desperate comments. That kind of thing is just showing everyone that Apple's greatness is getting trimmed down day after day without Steve Jobs. It's inevitable that this company can't sustain without him. Just a matter of time. Also, the iPad is generally an output device, meaning, you mostly read than input anything that leads to productivity. It's just not a productivity computer. And I know for the past 10 years or so, it has been cool to hate Microsoft (and some of the hate they deserve), but with their new leadership, they've turned things around pretty darn fast. They fixed all the things everyone hated about 8.1 (which was nit-picky in my opinion), they've got some pretty amazing devices (Surface Book, HoloLens, etc), they're on the right track for a unified OS, they're top contenders in the cloud hosting wars, etc, etc. At the end of the day, businesses still need to be productive and you just can't do that very well with Apple products.

Even with all the hate and mistrust towards the developer, I'm still kind of getting excited about his game. All the gameplay vids I've seen doesn't remind me of anything else, and that's a good thing! I really hope they succeed because this game could be a "game changer" by making the genre fairly popular. It would be really cool if lots of people played this game. The possibilities are endless!

The physics in this game sucks. Way too unrealistic (and seems like lazy programming).

kinect didn't take off because of 2 reasons. Most people don't have a big enough space for two people to play at the same time, and most gamers don't want to get off of their asses.

Don't know anyone that has a problem with 10.

The biggest problem is that Microsoft has gone full Facebook with this release. They control what patches you get, when you get them (because Microsoft updates are 100% reliable and NEVER EVER tank systems...), they take all sorts of data off you without your knowledge (you give consent in the EULA) and even if you turn off the various privacy invasions, they get turned back on automatically...

I don't mind paying a full price for a product, but this whole "get the upgrade free and sign over your rights for life" bullshit... No thanks.

Please explain to us what information they take from you.

So after that barrage of news for the past several years about how much money their kickstarter generated, now we're going to hear how much they're giving back for the next several years?

This is their big game announcement? Yawn. Now that they've abandoned the Tribes franchise, they're irrelevant.

I'm absolutely upgrading. I like win8.1 much better than win7, and win10 is just a better, more polished version of it. Bring it on!
