I don't care about any DRM platform myself, but if Valve writes FOSS software and gives money to fund Linux development, it's not an issue. They should be encouraged to do so (and discouraged from using DRM). Also, do realise that large companies are made of different parts. You might not like what one part does, but that doesn't mean another part is bad. If they have a FOSS development team and a DRM development team, you shouldn't just assume the FOSS development team is somehow tainted, just because they are paid from the same budget. As well you shouldn't assume the DRM team is doing anything better just because there is a FOSS team under the same company. Again, I can draw a comparison with Microsoft – their software division makes horrible products, but their hardware division makes pretty solid PC peripherals. Both divisions deserve their own reputation to be judged separately.
No announcement yet.
