    Lightbulb John Carmack: Kudos To Valve, But Linux Is Still Not a Viable Gaming Market [Slashdot



    dartttt writes "John Carmack recently presented a keynote at QuakeCon. He said Linux is still not a commercially viable gaming platform, and the two forays they have made into the Linux commercial market have not been successful. Valve's announcement about Steam for Linux changes things a bit, but it remains a tough sell."

    I haven't followed this story much but did Gaben give a real reason why Windows 8 is so disastrous for gaming?

    All i recall are some vague quotes are that it is and not how it is.
