Re: I love psychology.
It's the worst thing ever. Except for all the rest of them.
The tone of your post is fairly off-base. The condescending attitude toward those of us that like a GUI isn't helpful, and honestly your depictions are closer to the manner used by Apple. Microsoft are just being high-handed wankers that think they're fooling someone by saying they listen to user feedback.
Actually, the rest is fairly rubbish too. The Linux is trying to get there, still isn't there yet on gaming. It's partway there, some stuff runs. More widespread support of Vulkan may help with that. More stuff like Play on Linux, maybe the SteamOS. Businesses are the only ones really locked into things, and honestly if MS goes too far I expect legal action from them, to the tune of multiples of the $10k the one woman got.
I've been trying to get some flavor of Linux on a spare HD in a hot-swap enclosure. It's not happening yet, because Mint keeps breaking mid-install. I'm going to keep trying, but there it is.
