Well PC gamers have proven savvy enough to avoid GFWL for years, so hopefully the trend will continue and the newly rebranded GFWL, "Xbox on Windows", will be similarly shunned by the community. Microsoft's attempted monopoly on software sales should not be rewarded.

Win8 will probably finally drive me to take the plunge and turn to Linux for everything afterall. With Codeweavers giving away Crossover tomorrow, I'll probably switch for good. Up to this point, I am running Win7 and Mint side by side, but I don't think it will stay that way very long in the future.
