The Valve Linux Team has started a blog dedicated to gaming on Linux. There was confirmation some time ago that games would be coming to Linux through Steam and it’s great to see them putting their full force behind this.
The truth is that this whole situation has been surrounded in rumors and this blogs purpose is to give you a direct line to the source.
I think what’s exciting is that even non-gamers will benefit.
1) More games = more users. I know dozens of people who would switch to Linux if it weren’t for games.
2) More games = better driver support! Well, hopefully. It would be great to see GPU vendors take Linux more seriously.
So I’m excited. I won’t ever ditch Windows entirely for one reason or another but at least now I’ll have one less reason to boot into it.
