      10 to 1, if there is a binary coming is a Linux server. It nearly always is. However since Source has been ported to OS X one suspects that a Linux port wouldn't be out of the question. One would just question the business reason in that, Linux is a 1% market share and not known for its excellent drivers nor an abundance of gamers. Hard to support and the pay off is low, I still say nay.

          If f-trees are a drop-in replacement for b-trees then btrfs shouldn't have too much trouble adapting them...

            The real question is - is the fractal approach patented? Assuming corps patent even the most ridiculous stuff - I bet it is!

              C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\bin\linux32

              linux32

              32

              32

              32

              Doesn't mean much I think. The steam binary has had some code branches for linux since the original articles on phoronix and nothing came from that...

                  Believe it or not - we will see a Steam Box.
                  ... running on Linux!

                  Hasn't Michael mentioned this yet?

                    Even if Linux is just 1% for now (I doubt) when there will be games on it, there will be no reason to use windows or os x. Sadly, this games isn't something I would buy.
