    Just for the records: Even Microsoft does things for Linux (Kernel Modules, user apps and they sell it [MS-Novel-Contract])

    er... isn't Novell that publish opensuze? so for you Sir Brizz business people don't make things for linux, right? I used to work at IBM and they do business and make many things for linux there! I can't talk what they do for linux because of my several NDAs... But the list is quite long... Red hat is a business company they do things for linux, Mandriva does too... so there are business people that do things for linux... Id Software, LGP, Loki Games (defunct), Ungine Corp., and others...

    Sorry went off topic because of the post above mine!

    Why does Novell make things for Linux? Well, now we all know they don't because business people don't make things for Linux!

    I didn't answer your question because i honestly don't know the answer. You should try asking Valve why they didn't try to make the client earlier.

    Valve was not build by a bunch of business people, who scares about crackers and hackers. It was founded by engineers, who know about the difference between hacking and cracking. So the CEOs and who else is taking choices at Valve, know what they do. They wouldn't let the client be public available, if they think we are cracking it. I pretty sure, they know, we are hacking it.

    Anyway, I know that you're most likely too dense to understand what I've just said or unwilling to try, but maybe some other people with a bit more common sense can take something away from this post.
    Calm yourself down, we're all entitled to my opinion.
