          No, there are 4 independent ppl who have said they have emails from gabe, means jack shit really.
          Only thing we have that is proof is Valve saying they are not working on linux - NOTHING has been provided to counter this hard statement. The only way to counter a hard statement like this from Valve is another hard statement from Valve, not some random statements from random people on the internet AND even less from a "news site" who has a history of spinning hearsay

          Also it is the 1st of April

          As mentioned citable information from a Valve controlled domain really is the only way to confirm this.

            By the way, it's maybe sound's funny, but I also have a source (one of pubslishers who work with Valve) who confirm to me for last two years "working on Steam for Linux is not cancelled and not stopped". Sure, doesn't believe in this my words is your right.

            • I'll be out at the Valve offices in about three weeks. Hopefully will be permitted to do a brief video there with confirmation and other Linux details.

                It is still just statements on the internet. No actual citable proof and thats the point. This is the difference between an educated guess/prediction and reporting news - what is being peddled here? you decide but history dictates
                We have been down this road before, 2years ago infact which was paved with Michael belittling ppl that didn't think STEAM/SOURCE was coming "this summer" THAT only stopped when Valve made a press statement stating

                Valve denies having a Linux version of Steam in the works

                This is citable and is viewable by anyone else. Saying "I have received and email confirming foo" isn't providing proof, it is making a statement, a statement that cannot be independently confirmed.
                It is because we have been down this road before, been belittled by Michael in the "news" articles written here for not believing him that it was coming "this summer" (that was 2years ago btw... oh look what didn't come...)

                so put up or shut up.

                  • I'm not the one making the claim. Its common practice for those making claims to back them up. An in-passing "I has email" is not proof, it is a statement

                    • Everyone who still doesn't believe. Be polite, be nice, don't be stupid and write a mail to Gabe.

                      It is a fucking sunday and he actually answered me with details.
