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.

My Wish

My only wish is that after Steam is released and Linux gets those high demanding games, there will be enough pressure/demand for the open source drivers to get more robust in 3d performance.

I'm also hoping that the patent issues in Mesa will go away (S3TC).

When I say "open source drivers" I'm referring to nouveau, radeon and intel exactly. The in-tree kernel GPU drivers.

Out-of-tree kernel modules need to die (nvidia, fglrx).
