Operating system for games

If Microsoft made an operating system specifically for games, would you buy it?


If I thought of a good sig that would be weird, so I won't bother trying.

If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in a combat zone.

I did it before lol, I bought Win95 so I could play X-Wing vs. Tie-Fighter lol.
But anyway, I tend to do more with Windows than just launch games, so I wouldn't buy an OS that's JUST for games.

Ditto.

I just got a computer upgrade to be able to play JKO (which I still haven't actually bought ).

I use a computer for almost everything though, so a games-only OS would be a waste of disk space.

Not necessarily JUST for games, but designed specifically so that it works extremely well with games I.E. doesn't have anything that would cause some games to crash easily, and doesn't use much memory.

So basically a non-Microshaft OS.

I just chose Microsoft because it was the most well known one for me, and makes more different operating systems than others.
