The adoption numbers will wake them up.

Just a matter of time.

They already have more users on Windows 8 than they do using their failed Linux client. Let fat Gabe whine all he wants.

Steam and the "new" MS mentality will not jive too well, you can't force them to get along, MS is doing all it can to kill off Steam and similar programs and want devs to go through their closed App store instead, eventually if things continue down the road it seems to be heading STeam will be blocked out of Windows by Win10 or whatever it's called by then

How is a limited Beta a failure? Your "logic" does not compute, there seems to be a logic error somewhere

As far as I can tell Steam works perfectly on Windows 8. What would make it 'more Windows 8 friendly'?

I'm moving this to Computer Gaming.

Thread moved.

That's funny coming from the guy who just wrote this FUD:

that would be awkward.. i wouldnt know why would that happen.. i thought Microsoft made its os to be open to thirdpartys providors and what not.. it was alway a free market... but i can see this xbox Thing is on the rise..but lots of Gamers are still Windows users..it would be really low for Windows to kick them all out.. but oh well...Windows 10 would only come in 6 years i think

Failed? Was the Steam beta client for Windows a hit? Nope. But the Windows client is mature. I sometimes think ppl forget what a beta is.

A commercially released OS has more users than a beta client? I never would of guessed. :rolleyes:

Windows 8 fans must be getting pretty desperate if they're having to resort to grasping at straws like this.

I don't even get what this thread is about. Divorcing Windows? Marrying Linux? Are you insane?

Steam works fine on Windows 8 just as it did in Windows 7. Want a Modern UI app for Steam? Well I imagine you could just wait... I 'm sure they'll make one. Personally, I would much prefer their focus on Linux gaming than a largely uncessesary Modern UI app.

If you're talking about a Steam app, I can't see what that would add.

steam works the same in win8 that it does in win7 and fatty was just mad that someone else was releasing a store to buy games from. He just threw in some BS about caring about his users.

not so much that, the fact theres more Windows 8 OS users then all Linux distro users combined is what I think he meant.

The fact that "Pin Steam" is one of the top selling apps in the Windows store should tell you exactly what that would add. Think Xbox Games only for Steam instead.

Yeah it'd be cool and would look very nice, but honestly, what is the big deal? Why is this such a hot topic? Some people are acting like Steam and Microsoft are at war or that Steam is fisting their customers. It's pretty ridiculous.
