Now, more than a year into the SteamOS era (measuring from that beta launch), the nascent Linux gaming community is cautiously optimistic about the promise of a viable PC gaming market that doesn’t rely on a Microsoft OS. Despite technical and business problems that continue to get in the way, Valve has already transformed gaming on Linux from “practically nothing” to “definitely something” and could be on the verge of making it much more than that.
Progress has been amazing, and once Valve gets its SteamOS and Steam Machines, things should pick up even more.
Looks like Valve is working on their own VR stuff as well. I’m hoping finally VR becomes a viable option. Considering the fact that Atari were working on VR back in the 70s, it’s amazing how long it’s taken for it to become something worth while.
