Microsoft Fails PC Gamers?

Microsoft Fails PC Gamers on Daily Game (thanks Voodoo Extreme) offers some harsh criticism of Microsoft's Games for Windows initiative. Taking MS to task for Vista-only games, the shortcomings of the PC editions of Halo 2 and Shadowrun, and premium functionality that's free in existing applications, the article asks, with tongue-in-cheek, whether Redmond is trying to kill off PC gaming altogether. Turning to constructive criticism, the piece then offers several suggestions on how to address their complaints.

Um how many microsoft products do I have on my PC... 1) the OS, nothing else. This is a gaming computer and I keep it that way. Microsoft of course makes more money from PC Software sales, with the hefty pricetag attached to their software. But you bypass the topic. Microsoft PC Games and Game sales in general for MS.
MS makes crap off their PC Game sales. With a few exceptions like the Flight Simulator Franchise, and Ages of franchise, there isn't a whole hell of alot MS offers PC wise.

As for the Xbox/360, they had Gears of War, Forza 1 and 2, Halo 1 and 2, Mech Assault, etc. And then ya throw in Xbox Live subscriptions, and the Marketplace, and they are making a good chunk of change for the console. Plus you have Halo 3 and GTA 4 coming in the fall.
