I had not heard of that, I shall look into this further, but for me Windows 8 is just an upgrade of their Windows smart phone OS, cant stand the tiles stuff, looks ugly and a bit rectro for me... To make windows look like windows you gotta do bit a of tweaking, just to even find windows explorer, terrible lol... I'll stay with win7 untill im forced to change because of DX12 only being on windows 8 or something bs like that
They'll never be able to compete with steam because steam has such an established user-base now, thats like thinking you can take on WoW, which is impossible because it has millions of an established user base you just cant heh... Microsoft is way to restrictive on anything, even more so then that god awful EA origin..
