    The EC managed to pull it from the EU countries a year or so ago, quite the big to-do

    It always baffles me when a link to the Steam survey is given three weeks after it’s out. I’ve seen this on other sites, too. The survey comes out at the beginning of each month. Why wait almost until the next one is around then post it as if it’s news?

    If Rage is coupled with steam, I won’t be buying it at release.
    One of the reasons I’ve always bought id is that they use little or no drm, and if that changes, then pc gaming is dead to me.
    I’ll just replay the classics, and only buy games on steam sales. No more new release purchases.

    Greedy bastards wanna tighten the grip to maximize profits, fine. It just won’t be on me anymore, and in the long run they’ll lose enough sales to go extinct, in which case indie devs can take over.

      Indie devs are much like indie musicians. The general consensus /[

      Correct me if I’m wrong but… you mean 5200s like, the ones out 6+ years ago?

      And in 7 years more people will be using DX11 chips than whatever is available theng{<.<}g

        • JustAnEngineer
        • 10 years ago

        But in 7 years will more /[

          Aren’t we assuming everyone in the steam survey is a gamer, from once a year to constant gamingg{?}g

    Steam survey reports about 95% of the computers running a flavor of Windows… but only 19% have IE installed?

    Last time I checked it was still part of the OS.

      • sweatshopking
      • 10 years ago

      it can be removed in windows 7, but that stat makes no sense.

      • FuturePastNow
      • 10 years ago

      Maybe they mean set as the default browser.

      • indeego
      • 10 years ago

      You can “remove” IE from Windows 7 in appwiz.cpl .

      But yeah I seriously doubt so many people have done this, and it’s just FF is the defaultg{<.<}g

    • Jambe

    2.66% of participants in the software survey had foobar2000 installed.

    This makes me happy.

      • OneArmedScissor

      That number would be a lot higher if the iPod syncing witchcraft was a standard feature. I can’t even count how many people I know who use iTunes and think they have to just because they have an iPod.

        • DancinJack
        • 10 years ago

        It is SO easy to get Ipod sync going though. One dll in the components folder and you’re money.

        • Farting Bob
        • 10 years ago

        It would also be higher if it looked nicer, and the alternatives werent so good. no media player if perfect, but for most people foobar is not the answer.
