    Phoronix: A Special Linux Delivery At Valve Software

    After a week of interesting Valve Linux news on Phoronix, Friday afternoon there was a special Linux delivery at Valve's offices for their "Linux cabal" -- the team of Valve developers that are working to provide the Linux versions of the Steam client and various Source Engine-powered games natively on Linux.

            all other informations are: there is a coming kickstarter project about a linux-bases-gaming-console also with steam clind.

            and there will be a linux-beta-stream clind in the near future for the phoronix readers.

            and some games will be free for the linux beta testers like "team fortress 2"!

                Beer

                Please stop posting pictures of beer and talk about beer and lederhosen.
                I come to this site to read about Linux, Unix, etc not beer and lederhosen.

                      OK Michael, you made me laugh.

                      But I still like to think of Deus Ex-esque conspiracies in the software world.

                      Ballmer has to have a strategy for "embracing and extending" (or extinguishing) Linux. It's absolutely certain that a company that rich with that strong of a stance against free software has to be actively coming up with some subversive, probably illegal plan to get rid of the competition so they can retain market dominance. Or, if they don't want to get rid of it, they'll end up profiting from it somehow. What they're not doing is sitting idly by, watching Linux slowly erode their market share on the desktop and mobile fronts, and utterly own them on the server front.

                      Is Valve a part of Ballmer's grand plan? I have no idea, and I don't even want to speculate. But I do know that we shouldn't take the free desktop for granted, because people are working around the world to try and put a stop to it, or otherwise monetize it.

                        these words are only codewords for bigger linux stuff you know like the "dirndl" benchmarks!

                            Fedora? OSS drivers? That doesn't sound like a viable console at all... So perhaps it's not a console?

                            Eh, MS is too busy to bother with that. They have more important things to do, such as, oh, shooting themselves in the foot.

                              Microsoft is most certainly still undercutting free software and open standards whenever it can.
