      • I'd be inclined to gloat, but rather I'll say that this is an AWESOME turn of events. Much like the story with AMD... ;-D

This forces the industry to constantly create new products, which inevitably leads to quality loss. Imagine you pay a small, but regular fee for every update of your favourite game. Imagine your first game you played and loved running with enhanced graphics on modern computer after so many years, with so much added content. It would be possible, if only the other sales model had been established.
          Now, if only you could convince them of that. This one has origins from the beginnings of the home computer era.

            Take your micro-payment strategy and blow it out your ass.

Everyone of them who said they have Steam said they can't launch Portal(currently the only ported game) due to problems with Steam. My current theory as why Valve has announced or released anything Linux related is because they can't handle the additional Mac users, they need to wait for the server load to die down.
              Strange, Portal on my Mac (well, not mine, but that does not matter ) works well I got it for free, you know, anniversary

              • Hi, doubters. How is the doubt now with the Steam Linux client out in open beta?

                • it wasn't about stating it wouldn't come to linux (at least for me, go read all my past posts on this), it was how it was handled by phoronix, really really badly.
