Games A rumor has been going around for about four months now that Valve is coming out with a Linux version of Steam and had a lot of people in the Linux community very excited. However Valve have officially killed the rumor. And it is not what people wants to hear - there is no Linux version of Steam in development.

And where is Michael Larabel on this one?


Partying with everyone who reported it as "official" without bothering or caring to check that an announcement from Valve was never made.

Honestly, if you still believe anything coming from Phoronix you get what you deserve.

Phoronix has facts when he has released the news.

it maybe some dirty tricks by some big company.
giving Valve money to not release anything in other platform than MS and Apple is to be deeply verified.

Many of OSNews articles came from Phoronix, so it's better not to ask about its credibility (otherwise osnews credibility is related)

Official means from the company.

There was nothing official, just evidence of a client which could have been part of a viability experiment or some system used to test the server. It could have also been a rogue port.

OSNews posts loads of articles that are just loaded with factual errors, that then get ripped apart by everyone in the comments, if not by the person who posted it in the summery. Things that everyone is talking about are newsworthy, even when they are wrong.
