    That was the only reason I clicked the link...

          It looks like floodgates are finally opening.

            My bet is they [VALVE] won't let Michael tell us anything considerably new.
            Gabe refused to comment further about his 'Linux team' he currently works with in a recent interview.
            So basically, having VALVE deal with Linux in some ore the other way is not a rumour anymore.
            On the other hand, I think they'll keep Steam & Source Engine on Linux news non-official until E3 or so (if this becomes real at all).
            It would be completely untypical for Valve to refuse comments on such a rather 'big' thing and then let it slip out that way.

              serious question: did anybody knew that engine OR any of the games mentioned in the article BEFORE you read it? I didn't.

                  A few hours, scilence... A really strange move - to invite a journalist and then not allow him to share any information.

                    Well, speculating a bit.
                    It could be that VALVE is mildly interested in the benchmarking "expertise", and not in the rather tiny part of Michael also being "some sort of" journalist.
                    As I see it, Phoronix mainly serves as advertising platform for PTS, OpenBenchmarking, etc., to acquire new potential customers.
                    So this NOT a typical news site IMHO.

                      This just in Michael confirms signing NDA upon admittance into the building :-P

                        Now, now let's not be mean. Beside PTS therea are a lot of good news that start here first.
                        Also there are some, like the steam thing, that are annoying.

                        I hope that the windows install for PTS will get better soon, I see no reason in testing my linux install which I already know it has bad video performance.
                        I payed good money for my video card so I could use it.

                          Sorry if it had a "mean" touch. This has clearly not been my intention.
                          Just wanted to answer the previous post, why it makes perfectly sense - from my point of view - to invite
                          Michael but disallow to spread any significantly new information.

                          To be honest, I'm totally not interested in PTS and annoyed by these posts now and then.
                          But that's a plain personal thing, of course.

                            Was kinda expecting to hear something from Michael by now.

                            Here's hoping he didn't get taken out by a crowbar.

                              At this point I'm pretty sure they aren't going to let him share anything about what he saw. His twitter account is rather dead, as well. If there is a linux Steam on the way, I wouldn't be surprised if we wont see it for a long, long time. I'll gladly eat my own words if I'm wrong though.
