Thanks to the years of video game console lock-in with certain titles like "Gears of War", and "Halo" This Microsoft customer is looking for a much better platform that is OPEN. (Cant make a windows version?!?!? Is windows not a Microsoft product?)
Microsoft has been poison to the internet with their unpatched browsers for years. They have killed industry in the united states, and the simple fact that their controllers will not work WITH THEIR OWN BROWSER, makes me want to hit the cap-locks key and yell: "HELL NO!" The way web developers had to cater to internet explorer 6 by not using .PNG, and using the .GIF format, is completely absurd. (Seriously?!?!? this is crap from CompuServe before they reformed into America Online (AOL) in the 1980's)
I look forward to our new lord and saviors for gaming on the PC: Valve and Gabn!
After they break the Direct X lock-in with Vulcan, there will be absolutely no reason to pay the "Micro$oft tax". PC vendors will be able to offer their gaming computers at a $100 discount in the USA. SteamOS needs a lot of work, but it is totally worth it to see this dinosaur, and menace to computing finally extinguished.
Burn Microsoft, burn.
Guy who has been booting Microsoft garbage on his computers since the days of D.O.S. 3.5 on a floppy disk.
@ashley we need another voting option under no: "f#$%# NO!", I would much rather develop for Sony.
