Default Steam vents about the PC gaming market and Vista's "commitment" to it

Doug Lombardi expresses skepticism about MS's motives behind it's marketing push of 'games for Windows' in this article from gamesindustry.biz

"Right now it seems like it's part of the marketing push to help Vista. To really back a platform is a sustained effort over years and years, so we'll see if in two years Microsoft is still spending money to put Games for Windows sections in retail, and having PR people preach that message that we were just talking about, which is that the PC isn't dying, in fact it's actually bigger than all the consoles put together. You know, if it were to sign up for that, that's great. If it's going to use it to promote sales of Vista, that's really not good for the industry, it's good for Microsoft in the short term."

The words "Gaming" and "Vista" when used in the same sentence just makes me laugh.
