"Joining the Linux Foundation is one of many ways Valve is investing in the advancement of Linux gaming," Mike Sartain, a key member of the Linux team at Valve said. "Through these efforts we hope to contribute tools for developers building new experiences on Linux, compel hardware manufacturers to prioritize support for Linux, and ultimately deliver an elegant and open platform for Linux users."

Mark my words: Valve will do for Linux gaming what Android did for Linux mobile. Much crow will be eaten by naysayers in a few years.

lucas_maximus,

"Tell Linus that."

This is not to change the subject, you can criticize linus all you want. However too often this criticism seems hypocritical. I have no more control over linus than I do over bill gates, and I've certainly got many complaints for him as well for the numerous times I've cussed at windows for not performing as well as I thought it should. All platforms have pros and cons. Anyone who only recognizes the pros of one platform and the cons of another is being biased. Can we agree on this?

It not an argument ... I was just presenting the reality of the situation.
