I don't like the Xbox branding on my PC...

Well, then use another service if you want to avoid just because of the name.

Thing is The people who own xbox own windows. So If they wanted to call the start menu xbox start they could. I hope steam on linux is a success. Just like they calling pc games xbox windows games.

Thing is linux has an abysmal marketshare and will continue to do so among consumers and gamers. That isn't going to change.
Apple and Microsoft will continue to dominate in the os industry.

^Isn't going to change? Are you a moron? When you can get 20% more performance for each game that has a Linux version over a Windows version, PC gamers will eat it up and Linux will gain lots of relevance in the PC world. I'm on Ubuntu right now and have switched MANY people over to it from Windows who LOVE it. Also a few to Linux Mint. I mean I dual boot windows too, that's #1 for sure, but if you don't need Windows only software, you should probably work away from it as there's much better software on Linux compared to Windows. LibreOffice Suite>Microsoft Office Suite. Better VLC player. Better Audacious. Better everything. It's the main platform if you want stable, free, new, always updated software.

Expect to see Linux shares SOAR when Steam makes it way to Linux based OS's. It's inevitable.

lol, okay. I'll keep you to your prediction.
Let's see how it pans out.
Of course, by then, you probably won't reply.

calling others morons doesn't makes u any smarter.

3GenGames3206d ago

Never said he was a moron, I implied it by asking.

And well, Linux based OS's are everywhere but on personal computers. This is the time where things change. I won't reply here, but in 10 years when we're in a world completely build on linux kernels, remember me.
