This is exactly what I was gonna post. Even if we do get an os for gaming only, we still need windows to do any serious work. Its a windows world commercially except for a few specialized graphic design/ animation fields.

Linux doesn't totally suck, but the quality and selection of the software is pathetic compared to windows.

I was hoping MS would push minwin so we can have a barebones os with very little overhead and system resources used for the os, with low level access for devs to take advantage, and a revamped API. Imagine having a small SSD for this os and a few games that would boot instantly, and be optimized as hell like consoles are.

I agree, the only reason I still use windows is for games. Everything else I can do amazing on a mac like my music production, video editing, word documents, coding etc... and its just great

im pretty sure win 8 will have an extemely barebones mode, or full screen mode like a tablet, but i think this will likely be an overlay and not a bootable mode good for gaming.

Maybe someone could nudge MIT into looking at something like this...
You may be able to appeal to Richard Stallman about it. He hates corporate software.

The avatars are as ugly now as they were when first launched. I can't stand them.

Microsofts big PC gaming revolution will be bringing avatar customisation to PC users so they can buy useless clothes junk.

They should be doing the following.

1. Start selling all MS Game Studio games on Steam
2. Port Gears 2, Alan Wake and Halo 3/ODST/Reach correctly to the PC
