still cant get my head around this silly steambox.
typical pc gamer use mouse, keyboard or gamepad depending on game.
I have never heard of a pc gamer saying they want to play on the sofa in a big living room.
windows 8 is not a walled garden, it still has desktop apps.
windows 8 doesnt even have 10% of the market.
windows 7 is not end of life for nearly a decade.
in short citing a walled windows 8 as a reason to make the steamos and steambox isnt valid, there is another reason I am sure of it.
Are steam sales dropping, is steam struggling on the pc, why arent they happy selling to windows pc customers?
PC hardware sales arent relevant, they dropping due to casual users not needing to have a pc to use twitter, email anymore. Gamers arent selling pc's just that a certian part of the market (non gamers) no longer need a pc, or their existing pc doesnt need upgrading as now days modern pcs are too powerful for basic tasks.
So I am confused as to why gabe/valve are putting all their effort into this and we know the what they want the end result to be, games native run on linux meaning those of us invested in windows pc's are screwed over when we were lotal customers to steam.
He trashing what was a unique good point of pc's very long BC, but now the underlying OS is been changed.
