Oh hey, now they write "multiarch" instead of "64-bit" in their download page. That's a welcome change to clear up misunderstandings. Though I still have no idea why they won't release a 64-bit version...
Except that the ONLY users who actually have Microsoft code running in their kernels are those who are running Microsoft's virtual machine system.
This is like saying that Wal-Mart is one of the biggest builders of roads on the planet because they pave the entrances to their parking lots.
Oh there is no illusion that they contribute with a vested interest but that could be said of any contributor. Redhat contrributes for the benefit of their product, as does AMD, as to individuals who own that product, etc.
The general and most visible new stuff in 4.1 as i can see without the official changelog is that you have a new option, under the "Video" configuration menu.
It's a switch for turning on and off Auto-exposure for the webcams.
Now if only there was somebody to fix those damn crappy linux UVC to support switching off the auto-exposure on every UVC, will be good !
As always in linux... Something is wrong and doesn't work...
So why doesn't Valve do so? Heck even MS can supply a generic package. They can port their Steam client, port their engine but not take what amounts to being a junior intern job of packaging.
wtf are you even talking about? Not only did they not say that Steam would be Ubuntu only, but it's now in Arch's official repos and I know first hand multiple Arch users and a bunch of Arch devs that are in the beta officially... as in Valve knows they're not on Ubuntu and still let them in. Just because they picked Ubuntu first as their official test distribution doesn't mean they're only going to support it... and in fact they've never said anything to indicate that and were clear that Ubuntu was just the FIRST distribution, not ONLY.
I read they needed thousands of small contributions to get their hyper-v implementation going, so Linux runs on their hypervisor. The code wasn't good enough and about to be removed from the kernel before that
