Title: What do you think about Windows 8
Post by: moyack on October 27, 2012, 08:50:22 AM
Hmmm... Windows 8 is out and now I have the feeling that it will be a failure. It looks more for entertaining then working. And about gaming, there's a lot of dissatisfaction, one example is Valve planning to port their games into linux.

So what do you think???

I hate it, too much gayness. And about Valve porting to Linux, I'm getting Linux soon.

Rage about Win8 and gaming is everywhere.

Here's my favorite article today: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-pavley/windows-8-game-over-man_b_2031123.html ()

Quote
Windows 8, Microsoft's attempt to be more Apple than Apple, is about to shake up my world and the world of serious gamers everywhere.

Valve, the people behind the Steam online gaming store and DOTA 2, is really mad. Gabe Newell, Valve's founder, has said, "Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space."

Blizzard's Rob Pardo, VP of Game Design for Diablo 3, is also extremely unimpressed: He agrees with Newell and adds that Windows 8 is "not awesome for Blizzard either."

Even Notch, super nice Swedish developer of Minecraft thinks unkindly of Windows 8 and tweeted his unhappiness: "Got an email from Microsoft, wanting to help 'certify' Minecraft for Win 8. I told them to stop trying to ruin the PC as an open platform."

Lol I love what Notch said. Win 8 is really a disaster. I'm seriously looking forward to get Linux soon.

Theyre removing the Windows from Windows and adding Apple in it.
It seems they wanted a more smartphone oriented theme, but, HELL NO.

Windows now means tablet OS. Now people is tending to move games to the tablet platform. I personally hate tablets, I consider them the culprit in created necessities.

IF we need a game platform for tablets, I think we should use android and not windows. Android guarantees more security, support and open standards. Windows adds restrictions, controls and a lot of shit to get money.

Damn!!! I'm becoming into a free software anarchist :D
