Gabe Newell lashes out at Windows 8 again

August 17, 2012

I continue to post his quotes just to be able to repost this picture. Anyway, Gabe Newell, the co-founder of Valve software has more to say about Windows 8.

GTTV host Geoff Keighley got right to the point and asked Newell what he thinks new Windows 8 users will think when they first try out the new Microsoft operating system. “I think that they’re going to find that they hate it,” Newell bluntly said. “I think they’re going to basically rage quit computing after they use it.” When Keighley asked what is so bad about Windows 8, Newell said, “Things that used to be incredibly simple are very complicated and hard.” Newell then went on to say, “I hope I’m wrong. I mean, if I’m wrong we’ll actually end up making more money in the twelve months that follow Windows 8 shipping then if I’m right. I’m just worried that I’m right.”
He’s a drama queen. Rage quit computing? Really. *sigh* Source]]>
