    Left id to work with another company doing non-FPS games, I think.

      Michael has repeated dozens of times that it's NOT April Fools.
      It's an April Fools joke ON him, not BY him. If a company wants to fill a position, they're going to post ads at industry-specific job sites, not have the CEO send out an e-mail to a tech news site asking if they have any leads.

        I've been told (and seen a small bit of first-hand evidence) that a lot of openings are filled through this sort of informal networking before the job description is even properly written down, let alone posted as an ad.

            And he'll keep saying it till April 2nd. Either He's trolling us or Valve is trolling him.

              No. Not at all.

                Sounds good Michael. Hope you can deliver.

                If you can confirm this news, then I'd be interested in you writing up how you came across the first lot of news years ago regarding steam/source engine coming to linux and (if you know), why it took so long to get to this point of being publicly acknowledged by Valve? Assuming it's real, and you get your video of course...

                  This is just my opinion, obviously, but, if i wanted to get a programmer to work on something related to graphics on Linux, i'd contact the guy that hangs around at every Xorg summit or whatever before i post a generic ad to hire a generic guy.

                  I'm not saying it's real but i'm not saying it's an April's Fools joke, either, and i can certainly see the logic in that move.

                  just my $0.02

                    Though, if the job requires moving to the US, I doubt the Igios folks are interested either...
