PC gaming is only getting bigger. We're starting to see AAA console games showing up consistently on PC now. Stuff like Tales of, Final Fantasy, etc. PC is increasingly being treated as a first class citizen. Plus, Steam is heavily pushing their "Steamplay" thing where it works on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

I didn't read any of the thread, but from what I read elsewhere early into it, their varnish http cache was caching shit it shouldn't, thus everyone was seeing the cached data of the same users.

Probably what happened is that they had to fail over to a misconfigured caching cluster that was missing the filter list. It was caching everything when it shouldn't have. it was probably an automation failure where the caching servers just didn't have the full config.
