Well there you have it... the two largest PC video game makers speaking out against Win8. Both companies already simultaneously develop for MacOS and Windows, and Valve is expressing sincere interest in Linux. Something is going to give... either Microsoft will realize it's shitty decisions with Win8 and make more desktop oriented SKUs, instead of forcing clunky and terrible tablet interfaces, or desktop gaming will move to another platform. In case of the latter I would prefer Linux over MacOS, though.

I dunno, Vista was horrible, and that didn't drive developers and customers to Linux. And no one stopped developing for Dx9c just b/c of Vista/W7 either. In fact, only one game ever has been built from the ground up for DX10: BF3. Anyone who hates W8 will just stay with/buy W7 instead.

Personally, I'd love it of all the games were developed for Linux so I can stop giving MS $100 every few years, but I don't see that happening. And W7 is a pretty excellent OS, IMO. So, they screw up W8, no one buys it, and W9 is a vast improvement. Sounds good to me.

Vista isn't horrible, lack of support of drivers and turning off UAC would have done wonders for it.

There have been other games built from the ground up for DX10.

Gabe's a bit of a drama queen to. Didn't he go off on the Ps3 and one point and now Steam is on the PS3? Makes him look a bit silly there.
