Blizzard join Valve with Windows 8 ‘not awesome’ claim

We don't like Microsoft 8, and since I published my last article, I have spend some time with Ubuntu – on my road to leaving Microsoft behind. It is going to take me some time to get to grips with Linux, but I really have had my fill of Microsoft and their sloppy work.

Gabe Newell hit the news recently when he said that Windows 8 was a catastrophe for the PC space and another high profile executive has shared his views. Blizzard's Rob Prado made a statement on Twitter a short while ago and he said “nice interview with Gabe Newell – “I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space* – not awesome for Blizzard either”

Prado is the Executive Vice President of Game Design for Blizzard. He was a designer for Diablo III and a lead designer for World Of Warcraft and the first two expansions. Like Gabe, he is a man with a lot of sway in the gaming industry.

Kitguru says: The big question is, how many other important people in the industry feel that Windows 8 is sub standard but are afraid to speak out? We reckon it is a fairly high percentage.
