Valve: Τα Windows 8 είναι ‛καταστροφή’

Νταξ σίγουρα η εμφάνιση του MS Market (το οποίο ζητά 30% από κάθε εφαρμογή που θα πωλείται μέσω αυτού) είναι λόγος για να ανησυχεί η εναλλακτική πλατφόρμα online πωλήσεων της Valve,
Αλλά φαίνεται ότι έχουν και ένα δυο επιχειρήματα πέραν του market
Ενώ έχουν ξεκινήσει και οι προσπάθειες τα παίγνια που κατεβαίνουν από τη Valve να παίζουν και κάτω από linux

Τώρα για το εάν θα είναι καταστροφή για διαφόρους OEMs IHVs κ.ο.κ. η αλήθεια είναι ότι αντίστοιχες γνώμες έχουν εκφράσει και άλλα business sectors.

"Gabe Newell wants to support Linux because he think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in PC space. He wants to move away from a closed ecosystem of Microsoft Windows 8. He recently made a rare appearance at Casual Connect, an annual videogame conference in Seattle. From the allthingsd article: 'The big problem that is holding back Linux is games. People don't realize how critical games are in driving consumer purchasing behavior. We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2,500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It's a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we'll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that's true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality.' Some Linux users think that this is a win-win situation for Linux users as it will brings good game titles on the Linux system that haven't been there and it will protect steam business model from both Apple and Microsoft."
