"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.

There would have to be GOOD (comparable to windows quality) Wayland graphic drivers for both AMD and nVidia (and intel, though those first 2 are more important)

Intel is probably more important than those two, Intel GFX is becoming "good enough" for more and more people.
