Right, we should fight Windows 8 because Steam is not a walled garden at all and represent freedom am I right folks? LOL. There's much irony in this.
No one is forcing you to download and use Steam. Windows 8 is stripping away freedom, choice, and power, in more ways than just one.
I don't understand why all the people who love Windows 8 don't just go out and buy themselves a tablet. How about a lovely(**cough cough**) Windows 8 Surface tablet? What makes Windows 8 so much more compelling than Windows 7. "It boots faster". Okay, get a tablet. They boot even faster. "Its more secure". Ok, get a tablet. Its more secure than Windows 7. There is virtually no compelling reason for Windows 7 users to upgrade to Windows 8. Yet there are many reasons to avoid this catastrophe. The stripping away of choice, freedom, flexibility, and power are many of the reasons I will not even look at Windows 8 lest I begin puking.This comment was edited on Nov 18, 2012, 11:15.
