I just tried the link and it worked. Have you tried clearing your browser cache/temporary files? That hopefully will work.

Link is working for me as well. Interesting read though. I also own current-gen consoles but always find myself going back to the PC.

Doesnt really interest me Because mainly all my gaming is on my PC now. My consoles are pretty much dust collectors for me... I do hope they can put up a fight tho. I do wish them luck.

Valve is pushing for a variant of Ubuntu Linux. It is anything but a closed system on closed hardware. That is the essence of open source. What I am worried about is when people learn the true price of M$ Win10 fiasco. Their "all your data is mine" approach to trying to out Google everyone else for your data is absolutely ludicrous and nothing less than an attack on the user. This is why Steam is pressing for Linux, as well as several companies developing open API's for a replacement for DirectX. Most companies see the writing on the wall. It's just a matter of when the public wakes up and smells the coffee to M$'s abuse. This whole software as a service model has been rejected repeatedly, and summarily dismissed by corporations using Windows as well. I for one have no intention of becoming an advertising portal for M$ to make a buck. I paid for my system, and would always pay for my OS just to keep my data and privacy. Anything free, never is.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that can read binary and those that can't.

Data collection via Google Microsoft etc you can slow the collection down to a certain extent but my Friends whether we like it or not these two companies have got us by the short and curly's we will never be able to stop them collecting our Data Servious the Bear mentioned how Microsoft are basically forcing you to upgrade to Windows 10.
I was very doubtful of upgrading to Windows 10 but I must admit after getting used to new Windows (if you can call them New) I actually like this OS anyway the old adage one man's meat etc, anyway for what I have read Windows 10 is here for a good while so that is good for me and CHU no re-jig in so to speak of less work for Cal and his gang lol although I know they do such a FANTASTIC job I am proud to be a member of CHU and all the good information from the boards.
