Games Valve's Gabe Newall on Linux and Windows 8: "We want to make it as easy as possible for the 2500 games on Steam to run on Linux as well. It's a hedging strategy. I think Windows 8 is a catastrophe for everyone in the PC space. I think we'll lose some of the top-tier PC/OEMs, who will exit the market. I think margins will be destroyed for a bunch of people. If that's true, then it will be good to have alternatives to hedge against that eventuality."

Maybe they'll add dynamic tiling support and claim it's their innovation, I don't know... They'll find a way to hype it somehow.


+1 internetz to you sir!

As an Archlinux user, I'm quite happy about Steam's decision to support linux in case Windows goes all Down's syndrome on them!

Let's face it, for a lot of us, Windows is taking up valuable space on the HDD for games!
