Re: Regarding next X-Box and "always online"
I've recently got a Windows 8 laptop and the first thing I did was install a star menu and start using it as a normal desktop. I'm planning on installing Ubuntu at some point and trying to get used to having a linux desktop instead. I don't like the idea that to use Windows you have to be locked in to that tablet interface. A touch interface is all well and good but I don't have a touchscreen on either my desktop or laptop and it isn't suited to that sort of environment.
As for always on, again it's something I don't want. Yes my consoles may be always online as it is and my connection my be 99% reliable but I don't want to have to rely on my connection being up or their servers being up in order to play a game.
You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn't, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!
