As to the advantages of attracting gamers, etc. - I wonder what advantages you have in mind? Increasing the number of users of an OS is not a goal in itself. Just look at Unity, which is obviously designed for dumb people. Do you like that? Now imagine what happens if more dummies arrive to the scene: the whole desktop environment will be like Unity. Everything will be dumbed down. No more console for you. No more root. No more address bar (exaggerating here). Do you want another Windows or Android clone? Give this some thought. (Also see my previous rant, where I relate to this kind of user base expansion.)
No announcement yet.
