OK people...Yes its really awful that as we get older our gaming time gets shorter but we have to give credit that without the gaming community we would not see nearly half the advancements in computer technology. Part of the reason (and there are many others) that Windows is such a popular os comes from gaming. Case in point:

Back when Windows 95 came out one of the many complaints were from PC gamers who had trouble running their favorite games. Then there were the complaints from game developers who had trouble creating games that would run reliably in Windows. Thats when Microsoft created Direct X. This gave the game developers a platform to create games more easily and efficient. This has helped keep Windows as the #1 operating system. Wake up Linux community !
