You are bang on about the no bigger platform and the support. You yourself said, "It's not just games, its all the other apps you need for a PC, so you would still need windows for certain things, which then begs the question of 'why bother?'" What I was trying to ascertain is why you think all these other apps aren't available for other OSes. Basically what I'm saying is that there are realistic alternatives. Namely OSX for one. Yeah its locked to Apple hardware but it is a viable competitor.
