Games When I ask you to name the technology world's most secretive company, you'd most likely respond with 'Apple'. However, there's one other technology company that, while substantially smaller than the Cupertino giant, is quite possibly even more secretive: Valve.

As cool as that would be they aren't Google, and unlike with phones, PC manufacturers are 100% tied to Windows/Microsoft. Currently no manufacturer is looking for a new software platform to help them compete against Mac. Also, since only about 15% of Steam's catalog is available to non-Windows machines a Stream branded Linux based platform would likely fall very short of user expectations.

Basically Valve has nothing PC manufacturers want.
