A full OS for just twice the price of a game? And an OS can do much more than a game.

There is much more development time in that OS then there is in, say, a hard drive, and yet the pricing is similar. I find it sometimes funny that we don't complain about hardware prices, and do complain about software.

I find openGL games just look all smooth and bland, looks like they dont have detail. Not smooth as in good smooth... DX games have detail i find.
