Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Steam On Mac Performance... Improved!

When Steam launched on the Mac, I was a little disappointed. So disappointed in fact, that I went ahead and reinstalled Windows XP, something I was hoping to not have to do.  I had already uninstalled that side of my Mac and returned it to a united machine in anticipation.

My point is, I'm happy again.  My frame rate is at the decent pace it used to be and I'm able to play Team Fortress 2 without it turning into a total slide show.  Still, I should have known that Valve would get it all worked out in their own goddam time.


A new report from the developer/digital publisher is giving me pause on my second bootable operating system.  Apparently...

Depending on the game, video settings and the hardware, we have measured frame rate improvements from 15% to 120% on these systems.

I just have to say that I admire Valve's conviction to bringing a quality experience to a platform that really needed.  I may keep my Windows XP boot to play my games, but I'm really happy that someone out there is doing something for gamers to show they really care.  I wonder if there's anybody out there listening and if they might want to take their company in a different direction....
