Despite the rocky road that Microsoft has taken in the post Windows 8 era, the company is very confident in their coming product, Windows 10, claiming the OS as the best ever for PC gaming.
Or so they say. But really, are you going to deal with constant driver issues with Linux or lack-luster support for Macs? Of course your gaming PC will run Windows. Unless you get a delicious Steam Box
Dat steam box :-) Not really the same but I actually saw walmart carries the alienware console I wonder if they will carry the steam box also?
Is there an official Steam box, really? I figured that was just a general expression for these like Alienware made.
Well yeah but if they screw it up like with Windows 8, gamers are just going to stick to Windows 7.
Lets hope so.
The only PC OS you mean? Don't come around here with that Mac talk. I guess when the Steam box picks up steam, we can revisit this discussion.
“Best OS Ever for PC Gaming” eh??? I'll be the judge of that.
Obviously, it's gonna be best! I'm not gonna play video games on mac or linux. They're not just built for games and stuff. It just doesn't feel right playing games on a mac.
i think windows is the best OS for gaming. from windows 98 right through to 8.1, windows was always best for games.
Best OS is still Windows 7 lol
Not in terms of framerate in games, no.
Why, what are they removing to achieve a negligible boost this time?
They made the exact same word for word quote with Windows Vista. ..Until hackers worked out that it was actually hidden in-built code within the OS & DX that allowed/disallowed these features & publicly released the info & explained how to manually override it yourself. Forcing Microsoft to fold & release an update to unblock the features. I'll wait it out & see for myself this time before I believe it.
Of course they will say that. Would they really come out and say "yeah we are ok not the best but ok at gaming, so buy our product yeah?"
Your spot on but that said Microsoft are going through a big change at the moment and see gaming as a big £ earner and with new types of pc's coming out like the Surface pro 3 etc tables/gaming could be a big win for Microsoft if done right. My fried is not a massive gamer but loves football manage and got an IPad to play it on as he wanted a device just to check his mail, watch videos and brows the web and because it also had football manager on top he saw no need to update his laptop. But after getting one and seeing how cut down the version of football manager was on ios he took ot back and got a new laptop. I went to his hour the other day with my pro 3 and was playing football manager against him a and he has said he wished it was out when he got his laptop as he would of got one and will look to get something like this next time. I know the pro 3 is not a gaming machine but so far the bits I have thrown at mine have worked very well and this is what a lot of none core gamers do so like I said it could be interesting to see what happens with windows 10, tablets and gaming in general.
