Games "The truth is that this is the first post of the Valve Linux blog. This blog is where you can find the latest information from Valve about our Linux development efforts. Avoid the rumors and speculations that multiply on the Web. Instead, come to the source - a blog where people who are interested in Linux and open source game development can get the latest information on Valve's efforts in this arena. In this initial post, we'll introduce the team (and a bit of its history) and then give you a snapshot of what we're currently doing." Steam, Source, and Left 4 Dead 2 coming to Linux. We know why.

Meh, I'd hardly consider investing in games you don't really own to be freedom. If that service ever goes away, you can kiss all those games you 'bought' goodbye.

Actually Valve have stated on numerous ocasions that if they ever go out of business or should anything happen to Steam, they'll unlock all the DRM crap and let you download your software.

Unlike EA, which shuts down servers for games that they are still selling. I applaud Valve for this and I will be a customer from day one. I have never used Steam before, but I will support their Linux efforts.
