      Apparently only Torvalds and family gets to use steam... that's rather discriminatory. I call for a boycott!

        How can you boycott something that is not available to you in the first place?

            Well it wouldn't be the first time for Valve to say that they're almost done with something, only to miss their own deadline by a year :')

            I realhy think Michael is right, but Valve is just being Valve again so we'll have to just wait it out

                • his web surfing experience: someone sends him a link via email. He downloads the site with wget and then reads it in emacs.

                  I am pretty sure he is unable to read any site writing about it, so he can't have anything well founded to say about it. If he even does know about it.

                    Possibly not much as long as it doesn't link against any GPL libraries.

                      Isn't this what links/lynx is for?
                      I've had to use it several times in the past when my X is broken and it works quite well. In fact, Outlook Web Access works very well on a high res console rotated in portrait mode.
