The only reason I built my HTPC using Windows was because I couldn't stream Netflix on Linux. Besides access to my Steam library, of course. I hate Silverlight for holding me captive... Blehim honestly trying to think of something linux cant do that windows can besides games atm.
I agree with you 100%. This type of news could de-value Windows quite a bit.I'm so happy for this, I actually laughed out loud when I read Gabe's thoughts on 8...
Finally the time might come when Windows gets a real beating from Linux!
Just think if all games sold on steam would support it, then there would be a real alternative!
Guess it's a good thing you aren't in charge of technology in our world. There would never be any innovation or new products, since, you know, it's stupid to even think about trying anything new or giving people options outside of what is already being done.Wow... A handful of games? Year of the Linx Desktop is now assured! Oh wait.... Why would anyone switch to play a handful of games that have already been available for Windows for years? Again, what a dumb idea.
