"Joining the Linux Foundation is one of many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming," Mike Sartain, a key member of the Linux team at Valve said. "Through these efforts we hope to contribute tools for developers building new experiences on Linux, compel hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux, and ultimately deliver an elegant and open platform for Linux users."

Mark my words: Valve will do for Linux gaming what Android did for Linux mobile. Much crow will be eaten by naysayers in a few years.

The Linux folks *are* in agreement, if you just ignore one company - Canonical.

X is to be succeeded by Wayland, due to inherent flaws.

SystemD modernises system administration and maintains modularity.

The main thing needed now is for Pulse to be able to usurp the use-cases of JACK and Pulse-less ALSA.


The one thing Canonical are doing right is switching to Qt5 with QML, but GTK3 isn't that bad, and it's not too different to MS's plethora of GUI options.
