Windows 8: Gabe Newell Hopes He's Wrong

In an interview with GameTrailers TV, Valve head Gabe Newell elaborates a little bit on his distaste for Windows 8.

Here's the video, in which Newell says he hopes he's wrong about Windows 8 being a "catastrophe", because if he's wrong, the company will wind up making a lot more money. But right now, he thinks Windows 8 makes things a lot more complicated than they need to be.

      Yo mama!

    Oh man. That beard. I don't even care if we never get Half-Life 3, as long as Gabe never shaves again.

      I dunno man I want more Half-Life even if that facial hair is cool.

      A compromise: Gabe shaves his beard, Gordon's facial hair is modeled around it in HL3.

    I can't play this video - stupid IE 10!! But if you're interested in learning a bit about the reality of Windows 8, I've started a blog with lots of screenshots (most of which are not of the new Start Screen) and info on my experience with it over the last 6 months or so. If you have any questions, I will try and answer them as thoroughly as I can. The blog is here -

      @MotorMouth - I watched in IE10? Are you sure it's not user error on your part because it plays fine for me.

    Love Windows 8!!
