wow. and i though Micosoft was the biggest research computer company

i think that:

Mac is useing more monopolistic ideas, thinking it would give them more money, rather than making it avaible for everyone and making it compatible with everything (like Microsoft did)

C'MON PEOPLE TELL US YOUR FAVORITE OS!!

Uhmmm. but DX is free for as far as I know... :roll:

DirectX is for Windows only and Windows costs money. By forcing games to be DX only, they are effectively dissuading developers from developing for or porting games to alternative operating systems, thus encouraging more people to buy Windows in order to play games. It also probably makes it easier to port applications to the Xbox 360 too.

well, i watched the first, and i will say that those movies don't tell much. It's not like windows is any better :twisted:

Yeah in the first video, the guy is talking about MAC OS 9, because in MAC OS X most of those problems have been fixed. And Windows isn't better than Mac and Mac isn't better than Windows. They both have thier own strengths and weaknesses.

Hmm...I don't know about Linux. I see absolutely no use for Linux.

what are you some kindof forum troll? or are you just ignorant? do you realize how many of your game servers use Linux to host your games? Windows could not run one as good as Linux can.
