Any opinions here about how influential valve’s decision here will be?
(for those who don’t know about this but are curious, here’s a couple links I found real quick for you. Basically Valve hates how closed they view W8 to be, as compared to earlier versions, and others have backed them up on this. They’ve starting porting L4D2 and steam to ubuntu compatible distros.)
I can only hope this will drive others to both develop for and use linux, as I personally love using it.
