Games "I am still struck by just how interested Valve is in Linux as a platform; it is certainly beyond my original expectations. This Linux work just is not some half-assed attempt by them to make it look like they are a Linux-friendly organization. Gabe's vision to support, embrace, and promote Linux are amazing, assuming they execute, which looks to be very high probability at this point." Nice scoop from Phoronix. Seems to all tie in quite well with the prospect of a Steambox running Linux.

OpenGL is on par with DirectX in terms of features, the only advantage that DirectX has is that it's a cleaner spec as Khronos bends to the will of the CAD companies far too easily to keep the ancient model alive so they don't have to do all that much to keep their software running.
