Valve will be making all of their games -- past, present, and future -- available for free to Debian Linux developers.

Collabora, the well known open-source consulting company, has been working with Valve on the Debian-based SteamOS. They've also been collaborating for other ways for Valve to better interact with Linux developers and they've decided to offer up the entire collection of Valve games for free to Debian developers on Steam.

Official Debian developers can contact Collabora with a signed email that's part of the Debian key-ring to gain access to all of Valve's games for free on Steam. Debian developers wishing to learn more about their free game offer can read the announcement on the debian-devel-announce list.
