Garry Newman did a "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit and during that time today he was asked about Garry's Mod for Linux. After all, it's already been confirmed for Linux and Garry passed off its release as an April Fool's gag.
Garry responded that the release should be soon but was held up because he was waiting on Awesomium, a Web-UI bridge software component to be on both Linux and OS X.
I know I've been saying this for a long time. But Very Very Very Very Very soon.On a related note, Garry was also asked about Valve's biometric/wearable initiatives, to which he responded:
There was a hold up because Awesomium took a long time to release a Linux version. Then they released a linux version and not a mac version. They've since sent me a mac version - so we're all go!
I am not interested in the biometric stuff at all. I'm sure it's great for testing, but I'm not so certain that it would add anything to playing games.
Steambox is a step in the right direction. But it needs to look like an Apple TV and make no noise at all to find a place in my living room.
