    Again total bullshit. Apple does not pay developers to develop for their systems. Quit fabricating total bullshit as your credibility keeps diving with each post.

      I made an account just to reply to this and tell you how stupid this is. No, they aren't. Supporting Linux would not barely reduce Apple's profits, if there is any change at all. Most people with an Intel Mac have access to a copy of OSX. Also, how many people would really buy OSX simply because it supports Steam? Plus, Valve would probably get a lot more of a profit by catering to Linux users than Apple would ever lose by having Steam on Linux, and therefore how much Apple would pay Valve for this dumb conspiracy theory that I really shouldn't have put this much thought into.

      • The idea that Apple is paying off Valve to delay the Linux release is pretty unlikely (not impossible, I guess, but why?). Seeing as they haven't even finished porting all of their own games to the Mac, it seems more likely to me that they are waiting to finish that up before moving forward with Linux. If they are planning a Linux release, I would expect it to be announced no sooner than both L4D games being ported to the Mac since I think that's all that's left.

            "steamworks" features will be in portal 2 for the ps3. That's all we know.

                  Well at least he realises what he is doing as he said that in exchange for AMD hardware he would stop spreading BS on Phoronix

                  But yeah text only sucks, which is why we have:

                    not sarcastic only Hyperbole because its the 'true' but hey its less than 1 million dollar per second!

                    i do not know the high of the payment but i know of a internal information and this information is this: APPLE Payes Valve to port the valve drm and shop system and the valve game engine to openGL and UNIX (macos first) and APPLE don'T pay for the LInUX clind!

                    but yes after a 'time' valve is free to release the linux clind to!

                    thats the internal!

                    • Nearly July and still no confirmation from Valve. Michael is a liar. Steam is not "official" by any means. I suggest people boycott this forum/site. Cleary he only cares about his ad revenue.


                      So, where the hell is our steam client, eh

                        • theclappyman = stupid?

                          you are really impatient, aren't you? Valve has yet to release the official client and PR, meanwhile watch quietly as many of us before accusing stupidly as you are doing!

                              michael do have sign some NDA....

                              means you are stupid and michael is not a liar!

                              michael only can wait. because of the NDA.

                              get this valve can't sue michael because michael ask valve before releasing the article!

                              but apple don't want this.

                              just wait!

                              • You can't state something is "official" without consultation to official sources. Valve have not mentioned anything on the subject. I guess we will still be waiting for a confirmation into 2011 and beyond.

                                A hacked steam client and and his own opinions mean nothing. How do you know he is under NDA?. He has no substance to back up his wild claims. For all we know, we could be waiting, getting our hopes up, and then get nothing from Valve. This is the situation at present. Steam for Linux = not coming anytime soon.
