‘It’s a Trap!’ - but MS always has been that in many way’s, they are just going to be getting worse (i.e. more like Apple). In the meantime i’m slowly migrating all the home PC’s away from windows (dual-boot for now), but there is an issue with Linux and some brands of SSD currently, so that will need to be resolved before i push beyond this test-bed laptop.
In a way the only thing i like about Steam is Gabe’s desire to push Linux for wider PC use, and that is slow rolling out, but once MS give clear signs that they are aiming to be Apple mkII (i.e. locking down ‘their’ platform) i hope Linux will be more mature and stable and user friendly for the majority of people that have grown up used to MS OS’. Linux Mint right now is very nice, but it can be improved upon.
