Those are good questions - and one's worth asking with regards to the future as well - and I'm not really sure.
(And actually, I have to admit that I'm now not sure if you can call certain WinRT...

Ah, I'm probably being a bit overly sombre about the whole thing.

It's quite substantially different and is rather at the core of Valve's problem - they're already being frozen out of competing in one bit of the market. (That's not to say it's at all implausible...

Yes, although Gatekeeper doesn't have any of the 'reputation' stuff - for better or worse - it just shares the "this isn't signed" and blacklist functionality.

You can download applications for your iPhone or iPod or iPad using (the App Store in) iTunes on your desktop machine (running Windows or Mac OS X). These are iOS applications, and use the iOS APIs....

It is used by the game, yes, but there's no good reason for it trying to install a version of Flash that's 1) out-of-date and 2) won't install anyway.

Perhaps my use of 'on the desktop' wasn't clear - it was meant to restrict the scope, not add emphasis: On the desktop, Microsoft has already gone further than Apple.

A vague aside - Steam remains fucking terrible at managing dependencies under Windows; installing Shogun 2 tries to install an old (and presumably highly vulnerable) version of Flash! I can't be...

Microsoft has already gone further than Apple - on the desktop - with the introduction of a public API that (aside presumbly from Microsoft itself) comes with restrictions on distribution.
29-11-2013, 12:05 AM
To be clear - do you mean the WinRT API, or the Metro-style, or distribution via the Windows Store?

It wasn't meant to be a criticism of you, but it just seems to be a slightly odd question to keep getting drawn back to. (Well, for as much of the thread that I struggled through.) Clearly, any sort...

I suppose I was trying to clarify - for myself if no one else - that it's largely irrelevant how accessible (or really even how open, although it's still just Debian underneath, right?) SteamOS is.

I can't work out quite why this thread keeps heading towards "Why soldant should/shouldn't be using SteamOS"?
Aren't the points about the 'walled garden' stuff that:
1) Steam will remain...

You might think so, but it turns out that it's not for most people playing the game.
Well, except for stuff that's said in the game. Importantly, it's not generally mechanically important that...

What games are there that solve this by - without clear indication - either turn you around or treat the game world as a closed surface in some other way (e.g. try to exit east, end up entering...

There's almost an interesting point about authorial intention there, but perhaps not quite.
14-10-2013, 04:47 PM
That being the best way to solve the problem - not having a fixed-ratio ('1:1' if you want) between movement on the trackpad and movement in the game.
There's plausibly a necessary sacrifice of...
Sometimes it's possible for this or that person to say "I thought this wasn't a great idea" or "I didn't particularly care for this" or even "I found this rather unpleasant to be honest" without this...

I fear it may be badly promoted by astroturfers rubbing their grubby marks where they're not wanted. I'm going to send a jar of piss to the developers, just in case.
On the other hand, it does...
I think trough is pretty undeniable when it comes to the Japanese, in this context at the very least.
I think you've neglected that many, perhaps all (I've never been), Japanese people are women.

How well does Pipelight work with Netflix these days?

(Has anyone actually watched the video at the start either? It's the CEO of Bohemia Interactive who says the most controversial things.)

It's lucky that they're not doing that then, isn't it?
29-09-2013, 06:43 PM
No, it's not.
