origin of windows does not have anything to do with games, it took
quite some time until games were available for windows (most of the
games were for dos during beginning of windows). windows is a product of
ms marketing mostly and that's why it behaves the way it does, it's main
features are to lock you in, to force you to buy updates etc.
That's what I said! Windows grew out of dos. Hell, it's still here
on my XP.
But your other point is a good one MS has invented the
information-age equivalent of planned oblolescence.......
