Not my forté, but since you responded to my post, I'll comment.

I don't play much in the way of games.  I'm amused by things like Tetris
and Powermanga, but I can't stand most of the 3D games (they give me a
headache to watch, and don't really interest me).

However, I do have friends who play those sorts of things, and after
watching them, I've come to the conclusion that games are best on a
dedicated games console.  The random collection of parts that get used
in building PCs bring a whole manner of compatibility and driver quality
issues into the equation.  Even some of the (near) latest hardware and
latest Windows software doesn't mean that you're going to have an easy
time getting it to work.

If you're spending megabucks to play games, and games are one area where
money does get spend heavily, you're far less interested in the software
involved.  You buy the physical toys that do the job.

I would put it to you that the vast majority of personal computer boxes
are not used to play games, though (businesses with hundreds or
thousands of computers, schools, the computer bought for homework,
etc.).  Gaming is only a part of the equation, and it's by no means a
given that things "just work" on the Windows platform.

(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
important to the thread.)

But it's fact that almost all the giant game makers launch their games for PC=Windows .....It might be because they also use proprietary license for their games... Is it like that?
