    Portal 2 isn't out on Steam, even in Beta form. You should remove mention of it from that story's summary, lots of people have repeated the false report.

      My recent Humble Bundles I buy with Bitcoin. That's actually the only thing I use Bitcoin for. Though I can't buy premium on Phoronix for Bitcoin. When you do, I'll be your premium

        Putting the Ubuntu stuff in an artical about advantages is quite ironic.

            Why do you want to pay in Bitcoin rather than kroner/dollars? Are you worried about telling Michael your credit card number or is it something else?

                Looks like the latest Steam HW report is out now; if we can assume most of "other" is Linux distros then Linux usage comes in around 1.9-2% for May. They stopped splitting up Linux into around 30 distro entries this time around, mostly only showing the Ubuntu and Mint numbers, so most of the rest probably got pushed into other. I am guessing they decided on some threshold that a distro has to cross before being moved out from other now.

                    Why would you not want to pay in Bitcoin?

                      Maybe he doesn't want to deal with currency conversion fees or "lose" money due to exchange rates.

                        Or that Expeditions: Conquistador has been released on Linux, on both Steam and Desura.
