Windows is now a software console

Someone commented earlier that Windows is the new Classic, but then I read the comments on this post, where one Mac user says that the graphics DirectX 10 produces are almost cool enough to upgrade for. Of course, the same graphics will play on a Mac via the latest Parallels Desktop or the upcoming VMware Fusion (but, yes, you do need a Windows license), so it looks like Windows is now an expensive software console, just like, erm, ScummVM et al.

And on that note, isn’t it great that I don’t need to buy either Vista or OS X to enjoy them? Screenshots and videos on the web will do as much. Thanks Youtube et al.! (And leave the lawyers at home, please!)
