Gabe Newell, the co-founder and managing director of Valve, said today that Linux is the future of gaming despite the minuscule share of the market it has today.

That seems hard to believe, given that Newell acknowledged Linux gaming generally accounts for less than one percent of the market by any measure including players, player minutes, and revenue. But Valve is going to do its best to make sure Linux becomes the future of gaming by extending its Steam distribution platform to hardware designed for living rooms.

"Half-Life 3 - SteamBox/Linux exclusive". There, chicken and egg problem solved.

Good guy? I percieve him as a stupid guy.

Dunno the exact quote in english, but translated from my language it goes like "hating one subject makes you stupid on that subject".

So, hating racism, for example, makes me stupid? Or hating bigotry? Or hating lying? Or hating unfairness? Or, well, there are BAJILLION different things out there that are perfectly fine to be hated and frowned upon and it doesn't actually necessarily make someone stupid even in that subject.

Hating means you start talking from your heart, feelings, etc and not ice cold facts. With most people as mr Gabe demonstrated.

I think it was quite obvious he wasn't referring to those extremes and was talking more about wilful ignorance on a subject.

As you clearly demonstrated by calling someone "stupid."
