Hmm, a PC with an OS made just for gaming.... aren't those known as consoles? In all seriousness, it would be cool if there was a "game state" where the PC basically turns off all non-essential services and anything not required for gaming, much like how Aero and that stuff turns off when you start a game.

I went to Windows Server 2003, workstation modified.. from the bloat of Vista Business, this is a real piece of pie... not to mention it's secure and extremely stable...

Customize Windows yourself, use nLite or vLite depending on what OS you want.
