I'm a resident of Austin, TX. I couldn't see myself living anywhere else. Texas does have some big names in gaming, like ID Software. One thing the governor forgot to add, was the girls are hot too
Climate wise Texas is awesome for those that sit behind a computer (be it a career, hobby or whatever) because it does get fairly hot here during the summer, and sometimes a mild winter is nice... I've never had to shovel snow in my life!
