Will Linux ever replace Windows as a viable alternative? Can it be done?
Microsoft has a practical and a realistic monopoly on the Operating System of every desktop in the world except for a few that run on Linux. I have heard little and read even less about the upcoming Steambox that supposedly runs on Linux. I wonder if it is true? and if so will this OS ever be a potential alternative for serious gamers and by serious I mean anyone who has close to 200 or more games on Steam , Origin, Games for Windows Live or anyother of these game managers Steam of course is the easiest and safest to use IMAO. I don't really like the idea of the Steambox because with a gaming rig you build with your own two hands you have more control over what is in it and how much it costs , what it can do , how well it performs and you can learn how to make it better or upgrade it at will. Steambox sounds like a console on steroids , I could be wrong but who can tell until it actually comes out. What do you , Steam community , know about this issue? reading all these posts under mine , things do not look so bright.
