As we know, all console owners secretly wish their machines were PCs. They don’t like to admit it, hiding behind lies like, “It’s great to have a machine where I don’t need to worry about updating drivers,” or, “But I want to play games on my comfortable couch.” But deep down, secretly, they desperately wish they had to worry about replacing heatsinks and virus blockers.
