Windows is the limit because all the legacy and old thing in it. All the library to run thing, it's a really fragmented OS.
And, it's proprietary.
I like windows, it's nice for web browsing and network sharing stuff etc. But it's just not really good for gaming, it'd be nice even if explorer.exe was able to shutdown and terminate all the extra un-needed processes' and services while a game is open.

Easy for dev's to program for it that way
In a way yes, but i mean still a computer, Still as much fun to create as they are now. I find it a good thing that no one's PC's the same, it make it more Interesting i guess (well for me). I think xbox'es and PS3's are stupid because of this, it's just Sony and Microsoft putting their branding over everything. There are no real third party companies either, which just gives M$ and Sony all the more market share.
And M$ have stopped making PC games, they're devoted to 360/the new xbox now. Which means PC gaming is almost over...
