I Love This
Every time it gets brought up, I think it's an incredible insight. Gabe Newell used to work at Microsoft, at one point there was a study on what software was installed on computers, what people were doing with their computers. I'll let his words speak for himself:
"Windows was being used on 30 million PCs in the United States, and this was cause for enormous celebration. Thank God they're actually using it rather than just getting it shoved onto their Dell or Compaq machine and just immediately uninstalling it and going back to character-mode DOS. But the thing that was really striking to me at the time was that Windows was the number two product..."
Doom was #1.
