    I think this is very interesting read that could potentially affect large number of PC gamers in the future.

    Funnily enough Microsoft supports games on Linux more than Epic does, with a number of games published by MS for that platform, compared to the drawn-out lie that was UT3. My guess is that Microsoft's position on this will evolve when they discover that they can't lock out Steam.

    What games does MS have for Linux? I think criticism of Epic is fair. They tied their horse to Apple/OSX who doesn't even have a computer that can run UE4 well and already does the things Microsoft is moving toward.

    MS is still locking several games into the Windows Store which is overall bad for the ecosystem. Also, the Windows Store is a pile of crap.

    Word. I would've bought Gears if it was on Steam or anywhere other than the Windows store.
