Operating Systems

Submission + - What would you expect from a GamingOS ? 3

dwarfenhoschi writes: "So, I am wondering why noone has thought of this yet. A Gaming operating system which is specialized for games and gamers. I mean right now pretty much every gamer uses (or has to use) Windows, sure it may be able to handle games, but there is also much overhead which is just not needed for games. I mean, yes it is important that you can do other stuff to, like web browsing and such, but there shouldnt be unnecessary stuff. So what should a Gaming OS have ? What do we not need ? And more important, why hasnt anyone made one yet ?"
