"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.

What do you think is the base of the Wii and the Playstations. That is right Opengl.

OpenGL is not used in serious PS3 titles, they all use PSGL. Similar with Wii - any serious game talks more directly to the hardware.
