Gabe Newell Says Windows 8 Is A 'Catastrophe'

The quote of the day is brought to you by Gabe Newell and his apparent love of Windows 8. eek! Thanks to PixelNinja for the link.

We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2,500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It’s a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we’ll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that’s true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality.
