According to Gabe Newell, Windows 8 is a catastrophe for PC game makers.

I'm itching to see how poorly it does in sales. I doubt I'll be upgrading, but who knows I'll wait and see how it does first. :wink:

Windows 8.. Still... seems a little crap because you NEED a touch screen PC for it to work correctly, Witch no one owns and people love a mouse and keyboard, hence games.. I expect Microsoft is going to bring out another OS like Windows 8 for Normal PCs.. "Windows 8 X" or something, do people agree with me?
Thanks,
Chris
