    Meh i don't care because people need to stop using a near decade old os especially considering how good windows 7 is and how cheap it was on release. Windows XP cant even make full use of most gaming rigs.

    Hopefully this means a much better implementation of DX10!

    One of the reasons so many people don't upgrade is because they haven't been given a reason to upgrade.

    More DX10/11-only games like this should create a significant change in the statistics and shift more PC gamers away from an ancient operating system and into the year 2010. Either upgrade to Windows 7 or upgrade (downgrade) to a current gen console.

    Agree with you here. Win7 is much much better but considering most people will still only use their PC for Foozbook, MSN and Office there's not really a need to change. Win7 doesn't feature any killer apps. I think I remember a friend saying they're running out of ideas for a new OS and that they're only updating the OS for SKU purposes! (That's what he said, don't flame me!)

    I'm still running WinXP on both my PC and my laptop, but that is because they are both from 2005 and I'd rather wait until I build a new rig later this year, than splash out for 7 now. However, I certainly don't expect the latest games to run on my rigs when XP has been superseded twice. XP was dreadful, then it was awesome, now it's just old. It's served us well for 9 years but it's time to let it go. Windows 7 is an excellent OS, as far superior to XP as XP is to 98 and the vast majority of people would do well to upgrade as soon as they can. Hell, even Vista is ok now, after a shaky start.

    This is true but these people won't be playing just cause 2. Also i reckon with the steam survey that there is probably alot of players that only play a bit of CS source on pc and obviously they won't need to upgrade from there "dual core 8800gt 2gb ram xp" type systems.

    Sorry but this is almosty an exact copy and paste from Kotaku Oo

    Steam surverys fail anyway, they dont take into account alot of other info we need.

    Shouldn't be, since I haven't read their story. In fact, I try to avoid Kotaku as much as possible. I hate the site with a passion, tbh and will only be led their through a link from another site - which didn't happen here.

    you think people still using xp is bad, i have in the past few weeks, been out to a couple of customers who were still using win98 and dial up, i was able to pursuade them to update thier machine to win7, and broadband, which they are now on.

    I agree with the majority of people here. PC gaming has always been at the cutting egde of gaming. We need to move on from XP. This doesn't bother me as I'm on windows 7, Heck even my dad is!

    I loved it too, got my 1000 achievement points on my Failbox 360 before it died. Very much looking forward to the sequel and very glad they're not supporting XP.
